WHO WAS CHOSEN IN PLACE OF JUDAS ISCARIOT

  • A. Paul
  • B. Barnabas
  • C. Junias
  • D. Matthias ✓
  • E. Joseph

 

The answer to the question is: D. Matthias

Matthias was chosen in place of Judas Iscariot as one of the twelve apostles. After Judas betrayed Jesus and subsequently died, the remaining eleven apostles decided to choose a replacement to maintain the number twelve, which held symbolic significance in Jewish tradition.

Matthias was selected through a process of prayer and casting lots, as described in the Acts of the Apostles in the New Testament. In Acts 1:23-26, it is recorded that two candidates, Joseph called Barsabbas (also known as Justus) and Matthias, were proposed to replace Judas. After praying for guidance, the apostles cast lots to determine who would be chosen, and Matthias was selected to join the eleven apostles.

Matthias is not mentioned extensively in the New Testament beyond his selection as an apostle. However, his inclusion among the twelve apostles signifies the early Christian community’s commitment to maintaining the original number established by Jesus during his ministry.
