Andrew and Peter were brothers and sons of the fisherman [Dr. C. David Jones, “12 Ordinary Men” TBN (3/31/10)] and Andrew and Peter were partners in a fishing business along with James and John. [Dr. John MacArthur, “12 Ordinary Men” TBN (3/31/10)] Tradition tells us that Andrew traveled to Greece in 69 A.D. where he led the wife of a governor to Christ. The governor ordered Andrew to forsake his faith or he would have him tortured. Andrew refused to recant and, instead, begged the governor to turn from his sin and embrace faith in Christ. After being scourged, Andrew was tied to an X-shaped cross where he hung for two days before he died. During that two days, Andrew continued to tell passers by about the truth of the gospel. [Dr. John MacArthur, “12 Ordinary Men” TBN (3/31/10)]
