2. A disciple is someone who follows something or someone.  In the book of Acts we learn about the Disciples of Jesus (those who follow Jesus).Some disciples were also alled apostles.  An apostle is someone who is sent with a special mission or job.  In other stories we learned about the 12 Apostles of Jesus.  These were chosen by Jesus and given the power to perform miracles and help people understand that the news about Jesus was true.  One of the Apostles was Peter and he travelled to many places teaching about Jesus and helping them learn to be disciples and follow Jesus.

3. While visiting disciples in the city of Lydda the Apostle Peter met a man named Aeneas, who had been unable to walk for eight years. When Peter saw him he said to Aeneas, “Jesus Christ heals you.  Get up and take care of your mat.”Everyone was amazed when Aeneas immediately got up and walked!  Now they knew that the good news about Jesus was true.  They wanted to be disciples of Jesus too.
