One of the apostles mentioned only in Matthew 10:3 Mark 3:18 Luke 6:14 Acts 1:13 . Some writers identify him with the Nathanael of John 1:45 et seq. , 21:2, but on insufficient grounds. He is mentioned by Eusebius ("Church History," 5:3,10) as having preached the Gospel in India (which name included Arabia Felix). According to other legends he suffered martyrdom (Assemani, "Bibl. Orientalis," 3:2,20 see also Lipsius, "Apocryphe Apostelgeschichten," 2:2,54-108). In Coptic Gnostic literature he is often mentioned (see Carl Schmidt, "Gnostische Schriften in Koptischer Sprache," 1892, p. 451).
