FThere is no mention of a Matthias among the lists of disciples or followers of Jesus in the

three synoptic gospels, but according to Acts, he had been with Jesus from
his baptism by John until his Ascension. In the days following, Peter proposed that the assembled
disciples, who numbered about one hundred-twenty, nominate two men to replace Judas. They
chose Joseph called Barsabas (whose surname was Justus) and Matthias. Then they prayed,
"Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all [men], shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,
That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell,
that he might go to his own place."[Acts 1:24–25] Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he
was numbered with the eleven apostles.[2]
No further information about Matthias is to be found in the canonical New Testament. Even his
name is variable: the Syriac version of Eusebius calls him throughout not Matthias but "Tolmai",
not to be confused with Bartholomew (which means Son of Tolmai), who was one of the twelve
original Apostles; Clement of Alexandria refers once to Zacchaeus in a way which could be read
as suggesting that some identified him with Matthias;[3] the Clementine Recognitions identify him
with Barnabas; Hilgenfeld thinks he is the same as Nathanael in the Gospel of John.
