Default Who was the youngest Apostle?

And how old was he? Or was Mary Magdalene he youngest?

I'm thinking it was either John the Lesser or...Thomas?? No idea. Just curious. Want to know if any of them were my age when they decided to drop everything for Jesus

tradition tells us that the youngest apostle was John the beloved disciple. tradition tells us that he was an adolescent.

Mary Magdalene was not one of the 12 and scripture does not mention her age; she could have been a middle-aged woman.

I think with Jesus being so buddy-buddy with Martha, Mary and Lazarus, somehow I pictured them all being about the same age as Him. But then I guess the Apostles couldn't have all been the same age as Him and I'm sure He was very friendly with them.

Mary Magdalene was NOT an Apostle. There were no female apostles.

The youngest was likely John as another poster has pointed out.
