Affected Teaching
Here in Luke 9:1, the Lord Jesus had called His Twelve disciples together for the purpose of sending them on continue His ministry when he goes back to Heaven. This was a test for them to see how well they would perform their ministry duties. Jesus called His disciples together for this task. If you will notice in the modern versions, it speaks about Jesus calling the twelve together and leaves out the fact that He called His disciples. This is a very horrible omission because in New Age thinking, the Council of 12 are spirit guides who theoretically assist their seekers in healing and shifts of consciousness. This is nothing more than channeling devils and the modern versions can leave one thinking that Jesus summoned the twelve or the Council of 12 to go to earth and heal. This was the mission of His twelve disciples at this time, to heal. So the parallel is frightening because the modern versions play right into that New Age teaching and belief. Jesus, in summoning His twelve Disciples, represents the fact that He summons all His earthly disciples to bring the Gospel to the entire earth. He summons those that are His and He does not send any unbeliever or devil to do the work of the Lord. (Mark 1:24-25 KJV) Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God. {25} And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. Jesus healed the man with a devil in the Synagogue and they said to Him that they knew Him as the Holy One of God but Jesus rebuked the devils and told them to hold their peace. This is because Jesus will not accept any adulation from devils, never mind Him summoning them to do His evangelistic work.
