It would appear that one particular "act of the apostles" has relevance here:
001:023 And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was
surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
001:024 And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the
hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,
001:025 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from
which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own
001:026 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon
Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
So, were they wrong to do this?
