Who were Jesus' Disciples?

Who were Jesus’ disciples? What role did they play? Why were they chosen if they were just common men of that day?

Acts 4:13-14 says, “When they [the authorities] saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. But since they could see the man who had been healed standing there with them, there was nothing they could say.”
