Andrew Bar Jonas

 

Occurrences:  6
First Reference:
 Yeshua 3:22

 

And there were of John’s disciples who followed after Yeshua, Andrew Bar Jonas, the brother of Simon; John Bar Zebedee, the brother of James; Philip of Bethsaida, the son of Jabesh the fisherman; and James Ben Alpheus, the brother of Levi.

 

 

See:  Capernaum, John the Baptizer, Simon Bar Jonas, Yeshua

 

Azrael’s Commentary - Andrew Bar Jonas

 

Brother of Simon; a quiet man who was devoted to finding God in his life. He left his home in Capernaum to become a disciple of John the Baptizer. This left his brother Simon very angry. Simon didn’t care anything about spirituality. As far as Simon was concerned, God wasn’t going to make fish jump into his boat, only hard work could do that. And if Andrew’s leaving wasn’t bad enough for Simon, John and James, the sons of Zebedee and partners in their fishing endeavors went with Andrew to become fellow disciples of John the Baptizer. When John the Baptizer proclaimed that Yeshua of Nazareth was the Anointed One foretold of in scripture, Andrew rushed to become his first disciple.

 

After Yeshua’s resurrection, Andrew preached throughout Syria and as far east as Persia. He always returned to Jerusalem every few years, to give a progress report to the other apostles. Andrew was martyred in 73 CE in Damascus, when he was set upon by an angry mob.
