Is it true or false that the disciples were chosen to be the aposles?

The word "apostle" comes from a Greek term meaning "sent forth" or "messenger" (the word "angel" comes from a different Greek word meaning "messenger").So, it's kind of false. The disciples were chosen to be disciples. It may be presumed that the ultimate plan was to make them all "messengers" ... bearers of the euangelion (in English, "good news") ... but they weren't chosen first to be disciples and then later chosen separately to be messengers, and by some amazing coincidence it just happened to be a bunch of the same guys. The word "apostle" is used for many early Christian teachers, not just the disciples.
