Sending out of apostles


Does somebody by any chance know, the gospel passage of Luke 10, where Jesus sends out His apostles two by two… does this sending out exist also in one or more of the other gospels?
I don’t like doing intenret Bible searches much ebcause I am never sure will it get me a catholic version… so maybe somebody knows by chance without having to look?



Mark 6:7 also mentions sending the Apostles out by twos.

Regarding Bible searches–generally I will do a quick Internet search, but then I check in a Catholic Bible (online, such as at the USCCB site,, or in a hard copy) to be sure of the wording and such. In general, even Protestant versions are close enough to get to the neighborhood of the text I want.

Bible Gateway is great, you can look up approximate passages and they have Douay-Reims, RSV-CE and other Catholic Bibles with good footnotes.

I think the one from Luke was anyway the one was looking for. Kind of had in mind the part about eating what they put before you… :slight_smile:
