By Alex Nosrati,through professor Rev. Dr. James Kenneth Powell II,opensourcebuddhism.org. After choosing the twelve, the apostle's creed is given. First we hear of Simon Peter. He is the most faithful of these. Nice quotes. Peter will follow him later. We get the "cock will crow" story. His martyrdom upside down is given and his symbol is such. Andrew is next and he will distribut e the bread at the miracle of the 5000. St. of Scotland, he is a patron of missionaries. John is the Beloved disciple. He didn't really write the Gospel of John though. James, brother of John, there are the resurrection of Jairus. James was beheaded in 64 CE by Herod -- though this was a different Herod than the baby Jesus Herod. Philip is next, plays the largest role in John, this lover of horses. Early Gnosticism cites him as an authority. He was martyred in Phrygia. The cross of Christ is his symbol. Bartholomew taught all over from Phrygia to Persia. Cheerful, knowing all languages, was skinned alive. Matthew is next. The gospel a likely a second generation Christian, convert from Judaism. This tax collector has money bags as his symbol. Thomas is not important to the synoptic, but is seen in John. He is famed for touching the flesh of the Lord, needing proof. James the Lesser is called such due to being younger and shorter than the other James. He was thrown from the temple and his body sawn in two. Judas Thaddeus is symbolized by a ship. Simon the Zealot, was a nationalist. A fish on a book shows him a fisher of men. Judas Iscariot is the traitor. Conclusion: the connection with Jesus -- they are the primary sources of all of it.
