All of the pictures in this gallery will involve the Apostles in some way.

This picture depicts Pentecost. During this Pentecost, all of the apostles present gained the ability to speak in tongues. To them, they were speaking their language, but to everyone else, they were speaking whatever language the bystanders understood.
Simon the Zealot, not to be confused with Simon Peter, was an apostle of Christ. Some Catholics believe that Simon was a brother of Jesus. He is one of the least known apostles. Simon was called 'the Zealot' to distinguish him from Simon Peter.
In John 13: 1-7, Jesus washes the feet of his disciples. Peter tries to stop Jesus, and says that he should be washing Jesus' feet, but Jesus responds, saying 'Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.' Peter finally consents, and Jesus washes the Apostles' feet, saying that they were clean, but not all of them. This is referring to Jesus knowing that he would be betrayed by Judas.
Simon Peter, named for being the rock of the Church, was the apostle who walked on water for a moment. He also denied Christ three times.
Paul was originally a fierce persecutor of Christians, until God blinded him and showed him his wrongdoings. After that, Paul went from city to city preaching the gospel, and sent letters to cities he had previously visited to make sure they stayed Christian.
James the brother of Jesus, also called James the Just. In the non-canonical book of Thomas, it is said that Jesus named James as his successor, but no other evidence has been given to prove that this happened.
This is a picture of the twelve disciples, Peter, Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James, Simon, Judas, and Judas Iscariot.
The Last Supper was Christ's final meal with his disciples. While eating, he announced that one of them was a traitor, and the disciples all asked who it was, to no avail.
After praying in the garden of Gethsemene, Christ came out, to find the disciples there. Judas Iscariot betrayed him there, and Christ was taken there. Peter tried to stop them, but Christ insisted that he needed to be taken.
John was an apostle who wrote five books of the Bible, John, the three epistles of John, and the book of Revelation. His existence has been long disputed, especially about his writings.
