After Jesus Christ chose his 12 disciples, they helped him in spreading the word of God, and supported him in the same mission. But have you ever wondered how the 12 apostles of Jesus died? The following is a summary of how they died.

1. Matthew.

Due to his input and effort in spreading of the gospel, Matthew died as a martyred while in Ethiopia after he was attacked using a sword.

2. Mark.

Mark was also an apostle of Jesus Christ by choice and just like matthew, he was martyred in Egypt because of his faith and belief in God. He was tied on a horse and dragged across the streets untill he died.

3. Luke.

Luke also died a painful death since he was hanged after he refused to denounce his faith in God, and due to his input in spreading of the gospel.

4. John.

This is the same John who baptised Jesus. Due to his faith in God, he was boiled in a basin using oil at a time when Rome was experiencing a wave of persecution bid christians. In a very miraculous way, he survived the boiling and was later imprisoned in Patmos, where he wrote the book of revelation. He died a peaceful death at old age.

5. Peter.

Because of his contribution in spreading of the word of God, Peter was crucified in an X-shaped crucifix, facing upside down, which was honoured by his tormentors upon his choice since he argued that he was not worthy to die the same way Jesus died.

6. James.

James was thrown down from a pinnacle of a temple but survived the epic fall, after which he was beaten to death.

7. James the son of Zebedee.

James was the first disciple to be chosen by jesus. Just like the others who died because of their faith and belief in God, James was beheaded while at Jerusalem.

8. Bartholomew.

He was martyred while he was preaching in Armenia, where he was beaten to death.

9. Andrew.

Just like Peter, Andrew was crucified in an X-shaped crucifix in Greece. Its believed that when he was on the cross, he kept preaching and many people accepted and converted into the belief of God, untill he passed out.

10. Thomas.

He was killed while in a gospel spreading your in India, where he was speared.

11. Jude.

Just like a majority of the apostles, he was also martyred using an arrow after he refused to deny his faith in Jesus Christ.

12. Matthias.

Matthias was stoned to death, and later beheaded because of his faith and belief in Jesus Christ.

From the list, it's evident that all the disciples were killed because of their contribution in spreading of the word of God, and their belief in Jesus Christ.
