Happy Easter Dear Readers! Gregory got this Twelve Disciples Coloring book in Sunday School and would like to share it with you! Gregory says have fun coloring and have a wonderful Easter!
The Twelve Disciples Coloring Book!
One day while Jesus was soaking up some rays at the sea of Galilee, he saw some fishing ships. Well this gave Jesus an idea! He would make all the fishermen he saw, fishers of men! So He got busy recruiting twelve disciples.
So color along with us as we open the pages of the Twelve Disciples Coloring Book!
Simon was one of the first fishermen Jesus recruited. He belonged to a sect called the Zealot Club where they spent a lot of time poo-pooing taxation and throwing darts at pictures of Pontius Pilate.
Andrew was known as the “introducer” because he introduced his brother, Simon to Jesus. He and
Simon owned a fishing business, and Andrew did all the marketing.
Bartholomew was in Jesus’s top six. Jesus recognized Bartholomew as a man of imagination and vision. Plus he had epically big guns!
Then there was John. Besides being one of Jesus’s favorites disciples, John was the first person to recognize Jesus after Jesus resurrected. He later went on to write a bestseller called “The Revelations”.
Then there was John’s brother, James. James was one of the three disciples who made up Jesus’s inner circle. James was the first disciple to succumb to martyrdom which in those days was fatal.
Another Disciple of Jesus’s was also named James. Everybody called him James the Less because he was younger than the other James. He kept telling everyone to call him Jimmy but it just never stuck.
James the Less
Peter (or maybe Simon)
Peter’s name was actually Simon but everybody called him Peter for short except for Jesus who called him “The Rock” or possibly “Rocky” because of his immovable faith. And yet, after Jesus got arrested, Peter denied he knew Jesus three times until he heard a rooster crow which reminded him that oh yeah he did know Jesus after all! Duh!
Peter “The Rock” Simon
Another disciple was Thomas, who was cursed with the nagging doubts that are produced when an individual has low self-esteem combined with being a stickler for details. After Jesus was resurrected, Thomas refused to believe it until Jesus showed him the nail prints and two pieces ID.
Then there was Jude. Not to be confused with Judas. Jude was the least famous of the disciples except for maybe James the Less who was Jude’s brother. Jude was the introverted disciple who never raised his hand and who laughed at everybody’s jokes but never made any himself.
One of the disciples was Mathew, who was the richest of the disciples before he gave up everything to follow Jesus. He was a tax collector and was good with details. Mathew always had a pencil in his had and took it upon himself to write down everything Jesus said word for word. Everybody thought he was hard of hearing because he was always asking Jesus, “What was that again?”
And finally there was Judas. Judas was the disciple who said all the right things but who was slightly sketchy. But nobody suspected just how sketchy until after Jesus got arrested and suddenly Judas had 30 pieces of silver burning a hole in his robe pocket and he was buying everybody drinks and looking at expensive pyramids. Of course, in the end Judas repented so that he could still get to heaven.
And there you have it, Dear Readers! The Twelve Disciple Coloring Book! Gregory says have fun coloring and be sure to stay in the lines!
10 thoughts on “Your Coloring Book for Easter”
You want me to stay in the Lions ? I was thinking of quitting, and joining the Elks, but I trust your judgement and will heed your heedinging. Your heedening. Wait ! Are you suggesting I become a heedonist ? Hedonist. One who hedons (or heedens). I think orthography is over-rated. So is coherent thinking. (I admit it – I am such an April Fool.)
I think should become an orthographologist. In fact, I think you already are one but are just pretending not to be. Your secret isn’t safe with me, Nick.
Happy Easter Linda. Finally my Easter has some spiritual content. I should copy these pages for my grandchildren who are always looking to colour something in. I think their respective Easters have been spiritually neglected too.
Hi Michael. I hope you had a good Easter! You know that’s not a bad idea to give them to your grandkids! I have some of those too. I could use them as coloring page beta testers! Thanks for the idea!
Okay. I trusted you, Linda.
Now how do I remove crayon marks from a laptop screen?
A little club soda and a stick of dynamite.
Love your Gregory posts! Do you do the pics, or Jackie, or?
Hi Dorothy! Glad you liked my coloring book. Yes I draw all the pictures.
Nice artwork, Linda. I particularly like Jude. He reminds me of Art Garfunkel. I wonder if he sings Bridge Over the River Jordan?
He does look like Art Garfunkel! The disciples should have started a group! Bridge Over the River Jordan would have been their biggest hit I bet.
