10:1 Jesus 1 called his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits 2 so they could cast them out and heal every kind of disease and sickness. 3 10:2 Now these are the names of the twelve apostles: 4 first, Simon 5 (called Peter), and Andrew his brother; James son of Zebedee and John his brother; 10:3 Philip and Bartholomew; 6 Thomas 7 and Matthew the tax collector; 8 James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; 9
1 tn Grk “And he.”
2 sn Unclean spirits refers to evil spirits.
3 tn Grk “and every [kind of] sickness.” Here “every” was not repeated in the translation for stylistic reasons.
5 sn In the various lists of the twelve, Simon (that is, Peter) is always mentioned first (see also Mark 3:16-19; Luke 6:13-16; Acts 1:13) and the first four are always the same, though not in the same order after Peter.
9 tc Witnesses differ on the identification of the last disciple mentioned in v. 3: He is called Λεββαῖος (Lebbaio", “Lebbaeus”) in D, Judas Zelotes in it, and not present in sys. The Byzantine text, along with a few others (C[*],2 L W Θ Ë1 33 Ï), conflates earlier readings by calling him “Lebbaeus, who was called Thaddaeus,” while codex 13 pc conflate by way of transposition (“Thaddaeus, who was called Lebbaeus”). But excellent witnesses of the earliest texttypes (א B Ë13 892 pc lat co) call him merely Θαδδαῖος (Qaddaio", “Thaddaeus”), a reading which, because of this support, is most likely correct.
