Apostle Andrew Brought Him to Jesus video. How did Apostle Andrew die? It is said he led the wife of a Roman governor to Jesus. Imagine that! However, it infuriated her husband. The governor demanded his wife recant her allegiance to Jesus Christ. She refused, so the governor had Apostle Andrew crucified on an “X” shaped cross. This is why the “X” shaped cross is known as the St Andrew’s Cross. It is said Apostle Andrew hung there preaching the name of Jesus to all who passed by. He interacted with people bringing as many as possible to Jesus until he took his last breath.

Today, we will look at Apostle Andrew, the brother of Peter. As we’ve discussed, the names are listed four times in the scriptures. Each listing follows a very similar pattern of four each. Andrew is always in the first four and listed after Peter by Matthew and Luke. Andrew is the brother of Simon Peter, but notice how it’s written: “Simon (whom he named Peter), his brother Andrew…” It’s as though outside of being Simon Peter’s brother, Andrew had no identity of his own and it’s that way through the scriptures. Andrew is a background type person. He’s there, obviously supportive and important, but always in the background.
Another thought about the listing of the names of the disciples, the inner circle, Simon (whom he named Peter), his brother Andrew, James, John, were known by their name, Simon had two. The middle circle also was known just by their name, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas. Then, the outer circle needed more identification, James Son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called the Zealot, Judas son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor. It seems that the closer your relationship is with Jesus the simpler your name recognition, the further away you are the more it takes to identify you.
