What kind of men were the Apostles before they received the Holy Spirit ?

Update:

Peter seemed to have a bad temper and turned out to be a coward.

Thomas didn't trust anyone.When they all told him they had seen Jesus, he still didn't believe.

Nathanael was predjudice saying could there any good thing come out of Nazareth? John 1:46

Paul was a murderer putting Christians to death.

Isn't it amazing what the Holy Spirit can do?

    Just regular guys, nothing special. Peter is an interesting example because when Jesus was arrested Peter denied knowing Jesus 3xs. However, after he received the Holy Spirit, he went about preaching about Christ and died for the cause.

    They were all sinners and mostly uneducated men of their day. The were struggling with the same issues we struggle with today, until they met Jesus and were transformed with their hearts on fire with love and devotion because they recognized Him as the promised Messiah and the Holy Spirit gave them the graces and strength to proclaim this to all the world. They still sinned, look at Peter denial of knowing and following Jesus yet he repented and was forgiven whereas Judas had sunk to hopeless despair and committed suicide.

    Some of them are fishermen.

    Matthew 4:18 And walking by the sea of Galilee, he saw two brethren, Simon who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishers.

    Matthew 4:19 And he saith unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you fishers of men.

    Probably just people like you and me. One was a fisherman.

    By and large they were just normal Joes. No one was a doctor or lawyer or especially destinguished other than as maybe a artisan.

    Jesus was a high Artisan, a wood worker.

    They were probably exactly the same, considering that the holy spirit is a neurological con-job.
