Andrew [N] [E] [H]

(manly ), one of the apostles of our Lord, ( John 1:40 ; Matthew 4:18 ) brother of Simon Peter. He was of Bethsaida, and had been a disciple of John the Baptist, leaving him to follow our Lord. By his means his brother Simon was brought to Jesus. ( John 1:41 ) His place among the apostles seems to have been fourth, next after the three Peter, James and John, and in company with Philip. ( Mark 3:18 ; Acts 1:13 ) The traditions about him are various. He is said to have preached in Scythia, in Greece, in Asia Minor and Thrace, and to have been crucified at Patrae in Achaia.
