Summary: Nelson Estrada examines the apostlesG�C�O transformation of status from followers to leaders in Acts 1G�C�o2. He challenges the common view that Acts 1:12G�C�o14 is the preparation for the coming of the Spirit in Acts 2, and that the sole purpose of Acts 1:15G�C�o26 is to set the number of the apostles at twelveG�C�oin line with JesusG�C�O prophecy in Luke 22:30. Instead, Estrada reads Acts 1:12G�C�o14 and 1:15G�C�o26 as primarily propagandistic in nature. He argues that these pericopes promote the leadership integrity of the apostles by attempting to win the support of the women disciples and JesusG�C�O family.
