138:5.1 Thomas the fisherman and Judas
the wanderer met Jesus and the apostles at the fisher-boat landing at Tarichea, and Thomas
led the party to his near-by home. Philip now presented Thomas as his nominee for
apostleship and Nathaniel presented Judas Iscariot the Judean, for similar honors.
Jesus looked upon Thomas and said: "Thomas, you lack faith; nevertheless, I receive you. Follow me." To Judas Iscariot the Master said: "Judas, we are all of one flesh, and as I receive you into our midst, I
pray that you will always be loyal to your Galilean brethren. Follow me."
