At which point were the disciples saved?


At which point were the disciples (John, James, Peter etc) of Jesus 'saved'? Was it when Jesus first called them whilst most of them were fishing? Or was it when they eventually understood the cross and Jesus' resurrection?
Or was it on the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was first poured out into their and 3000 souls lives?


Hi friend,

Personally I believe that they were saved when the Spirit of God made them wiling to follow the Lord Jesus as He made their hearts willing to leave all.

Yet Judas also joined them yet he wasn't saved. So it safer to leave this question unanswered as to where exactly the beginning of one's salvation is/was.  We know from the complete story, that the eleven were saved and that they gradually increased in their understanding and faith of the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Before His resurrection and also before Pentecost there were many aspects of their Master dark and confusing.
Let's learn not too hastily pronounce someone saved.  Let it 'overwinter' and see what becomes of the initial moves in some one's life.
