Surprised! Objections Very surprised to see this view. Only very few, relatively modern commentators, since the late 18th century, have given this view. Objections: 1) Peter acted per Jesus command, "feed my sheep", not "impulsively". 2) The scipture demonstrates the Holy Spirit's leading through the apostles in this meeting. 3) Casting lots was God's means prior to Pentecost (shortly to come) for God-led decisions. 4) The qualifications of apostles as eye-witnesses of Jesus entire ministry, from baptism to resurrection, are given here, Mathias qualified candidate. 5) Paul calls himself "apostle to the Gentiles", not primarily to Israel which 12 signifies. Paul being called and sent to Gentiles, yet formerly a Jew, as a "light to the nations" per prophecy. 6) Was Peter a false teacher as an apostle? No, but an inspired prophet too!
