How The Disciples / Apostles of the Bible Died


Disclaimer: Other than Judas & John, these are not Scriptural. Some are historical, some passed down

by Christian traditions and are consistent with how they would have been treated in their time.

Patræ, Achaia [southern Greece]. Hung alive for two days, exhorting spectators all the while.

by the idolaters of Armenia (Western Asia near Turkey). The most travelled of the Disciples after

Jesus death, Preached the Gospel in Mesopotamia [Iraq], Persia [Iran], Ethiopia, Arabia and India.


  • James the Greater (son of Zebedee / brother of John) : Beheaded or stabbed with a sword by Herod

Agrippa around 44 AD near Palestine and not far from where he was a local missionary to the Jews in

Judea. His accuser was converted by James’ courage & the two were beheaded together.
