André is from Bethsaida in Galilee, on the shores of Lake Tiberias. With his brother Pierre, he made a living from fishing. Having heard the preaching of John the Baptist, he became one of his disciples. And when he heard him point to Jesus: “Here is the Lamb of God”, he followed him. Andrew thus became the first apostle, presenting his brother Peter to Christ. After Pentecost, Andrew left to evangelize Greece and Asia Minor, and was crucified under Emperor Nero, in Patras (Greece).
