Defining an Apostolic People

Defining an Apostolic People

John Alley addresses the question of what it truly means to be an apostolic people. He begins with the pivotal point of the apostolic message – what makes an apostle?

What are the defining characteristics? Hebrews 3:1 describes Jesus as “the apostle and high priest of our confession”. So Jesus, as the original apostle, is the pattern and example for all others. Jesus emptied himself of everything – position, authority, power, knowledge and will. He was sent to represent the Father, not himself. So we see that a true apostle is one who represents another, not self. John will continue this message at a future date.
