huge Basin of boiling oil during a wave of

persecution In Rome. However, he was

miraculously delivered From death.

John was then sentenced to the mines on

the prison Island of Patmos. He wrote his

prophetic Book of Revelation on Patmos .

The apostle John was later freed and

returned to serve As Bishop of Edessa in

modern Turkey . He died as an old man, the

only apostle to die peacefully

  1. Peter

He was crucified upside down on an x-

shaped cross.

According to church tradition it was because

he told his tormentors that he felt unworthy

to die In the same way that Jesus Christ had


  1. James

The leader of the church in Jerusalem , was

thrown over a hundred feet down from the

southeast pinnacle of the Temple when he

refused to deny his faith in Christ. When

they discovered that he survived the fall, his

enemies beat James to death with a fuller’s


  • This was the same pinnacle where Satan

had taken Jesus during the Temptation.

  1. James the Son of Zebedee,

was a fisherman by trade when Jesus Called

him to a lifetime of ministry. As a strong

leader of the church, James was ultimately

beheaded at Jerusalem. The Roman officer

who guarded James watched amazed as

James defended his faith at his trial. Later,

the officer Walked beside James to the place

of execution. Overcome by conviction, he

declared his new faith to the judge and Knelt

beside James to accept beheading as a


  1. Bartholomew

Asia. He witnessed for our Lord in present

day Turkey. Bartholomew was martyred for

his preaching in Armenia where he was

flayed to death by a whip.

  1. Andrew

Was crucified on an x-shaped cross in Patras,

Greece. After being whipped severely by

seven soldiers they tied his body to the cross

with cords to prolong his agony. His

followers reported that, when he was led

toward the cross, Andrew saluted it in these

words: 'I have long desired and expected

this happy hour. The cross has been

consecrated by the body of Christ hanging on

it.’ He continued to preach to his tormentors

For two days until he expired.

deny his faith in Christ.

  1. Matthias

The apostle chosen to replace the traitor

Judas Iscariot, was stoned and then


  1. Paul

Was tortured and then beheaded by the evil

Emperor Nero at Rome in A.D. 67. Paul

endured a lengthy imprisonment, which

allowed him to write his many

epistles to the churches he had formed

throughout the Roman Empire. These

letters, which taught many of the

foundational Doctrines of Christianity, form a

large portion of the New Testament.

Perhaps this is a reminder to us that our

sufferings here are indeed minor compared

to the intense persecution and cold cruelty

faced by the apostles and disciples during

their times For the sake of the Faith. And ye

shall be hated of all men for my name’s

sake: But he that endureth to the end shall

be saved…




Lakini hio. ya Yohana ni suspect. How can you survive boiling in transformer oil? Hapa ndio tunaitishanga mbisha.


what is a fuller?



Hio ya Judas nashuku…I have this freind (yeah some friend he is) of mine who has the same traits kabisa…That mafaka is still alive.


Sasa tutajie hata Waluhya watano ambao ni manabii wa dini za kiasili Afrika jinsi walivyokufa. Tutangoja.


yaani hivi ndio mungu aliwalipa for believing in him and spreading his word,hata heri judas alijinyonga

Good piece…amen…

Good piece…amen…


Hehehe wacha zako …

All unarmed prophets come to greif. You must have enaf arms and armies if you want to preach people useless stuff that might overturn the status quo. Mohammed couldnt be touched because he was armed. Maina njenga escaped narrowly and that was because he was mildly armed. Isis and Boko haram leaders are examples too.

Am serious boss…That Judas might be the only disciple that is still alive today

Wish we did that to the missionaries

Truly inspirational !
