How the Apostles Died

From Wikipedia

Judas Iscariot, originally one of the 12, died after the death of Jesus. Matthew 27:5 says that he hanged himself and Acts 1:18 says that he fell, burst open and his "bowels gushed out". Matthias was elected to take his place as one of the 12.

According to Christian tradition:

Original 12 picked by Jesus:

  • Peter, crucified upside-down in Rome circa AD 64.

  • James, son of Zebedee was beheaded in AD 44, first of the 12 to die (since the addition of Matthias)

  • John, son of Zebedee, natural causes due to old age, last of the 12 to die, only one of the 12 (or 13 counting both Judas Iscariot and Matthias) to die naturally (as mentioned by Christ at the end of the Gospel of John).

  • Andrew, Peter's brother, was crucified upon a diagonal or X-shaped cross.

  • Philip was crucified in AD 54.

  • Bartholomew (also known as Nathaniel) was flayed alive (skinned) and then beheaded; some sources locate his death at Derbend on the Caspian Sea.

  • Matthew killed by a halberd in AD 60.

  • Thomas was killed by a spear in Mylapore, Madras, India in AD 72.

  • James, son of Alphaeus, beaten to death with a club after being crucified and stoned.

  • Jude was crucified.

  • Simon the Zealot was crucified in AD 74.

  • Judas Iscariot, according to the gospels, hanged himself after betraying Jesus.

    Replacement picked by the surviving 11:

  • Matthias, Judas' replacement, was stoned and beheaded.
