Since the Creed is called the Apostles’
Creed, we need to first find out who these Apostles were. The word
Apostle means one who is sent forth. In Greek the word is “apostolos,”
meaning a representative delegate who is entrusted with a mission.

for the twelve disciples called upon by Jesus. But in a broader
sense, it was applied to other eminent Christian teachers such as
Barnabas (Acts 14:14).
