Matthew 10:2-4: Now the names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; Simon the Cananite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him.
Mark 3:16-19: Simon, to whom He gave the name Peter; James the son of Zebedee and John the brother of James, to whom He gave the name Boanerges, that is, “Sons of Thunder”; Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Thaddaeus, Simon the Cananite; and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him. And they went into a house.

Luke 6:13-16: And when it was day, He called His disciples to Himself; and from them He chose twelve whom He also named apostles: Simon, whom He also named Peter, and Andrew his brother; James and John; Philip and Bartholomew; Matthew and Thomas; James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called the Zealot; Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot who also became a traitor.
Acts 1:13-26: And when they had entered, they went up into the upper room where they were staying: Peter, James, John, and Andrew; Philip and Thomas; Bartholomew and Matthew; James the son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot; and Judas the son of James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers. […] And they cast their lots, and the lot fell on Matthias. And he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

Matthew and Mark say that the twelve apostles includes Thaddaeus but excludes Judas son of James, but Luke says that the twelve apostles includes Judas son of James but excludes Thaddaeus, and Acts says that the twelve apostles includes Matthias but excludes Thaddaeus and Judas son of James.

Contradictions:
1. The 12 includes Thaddaeus != The 12 doesn't include Thaddaeus.
2. The 12 doesn't include James son of John != The 12 includes James son of John.
3. The 12 doesn't include Matthias != The 12 includes Matthias.
