January 18 – Matthew 10:5-15

Jesus sent the twelve on a mission trip. Have you ever been on a trip like this?

Looking back at the list in 10:3, Matthew refers to Judas not Iscariot as Thaddaeus. Other translations call him Lebbaeus. So we have a man with three names—Judas, Thaddaeus, and Lebbaeus. Most of us identify him by who he is not. Do not confuse this Judas with Judas Iscariot.
