Why are Luke and Mark, who are not among the Twelve, included in this template title Apostles? Str1977 (smile back) 00:01, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Why is St. Paul included in this template? He was not one of the twelve Apostles. I can see the argument for including Matthias in this list because he replaced Judas Iscariot, but no such argument can be made for Paul. Tjtenor2 (talk) 11:35, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Paul claimed to be the "Apostle to the Gentiles". Catholic Encyclopedia: Apostles: "Saul of Tarsus, being miraculously converted, and called to preach the Gospel to the heathens, claimed with much insistency this title and its rights. " 1 Cor 9:1: "Am I not an apostle?". (talk) 18:19, 12 November 2008 (UTC)
