Acts 1:21Â Therefore it is necessary to choose one of the men who have been with us the whole time the Lord Jesus was living among us, 22Â beginning from Johnâ€™s baptism to the time when Jesus was taken up from us. For one of these must become a witness with us of his resurrection.â€ 23Â So they nominated two men: Joseph called Barsabbas (also known as Justus) and Matthias. 24Â Then they prayed,â€œLord, you know everyoneâ€™s heart. Show us which of these two you have chosen 25Â to take over this apostolic ministry, which Judas left to go where he belongs.â€ 26Â Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he was added to the eleven apostles.â€Â
