In my youth, Catholics said "Our Father, a wart in Heaven" and Protestants (people of the book) said "Our father, a chart in Heaven".
The apostles… hmm… well, Peter, that's easy; James and John, Jesus' brothers; Judas of course… that's about it for me, though if one of them were named I'd know he'd been one of the gang. Was Judas Thaddeus also an apostle, as well as the group's accountant, Judas Iscariot?
Oh, and Matthew, wasn't he an apostle too, the only one of the New Testament scribes who knew Jesus…
