Chapter 22, “The Apostles”
Commenting on Matthew 10:1-4, Bonhoeffer says the Father revealed to the Son the twelve he should choose. Jesus gave them power, in Bonhoeffer’s view (Loc. 2816) more important than a word or doctrine. This power enables the apostles to be like Christ in their ability to overcome the devil. There is no strong bond among the twelve except they were called by Jesus.
