Quick Reference

One of the Twelve (Mark 3: 18; Acts 1: 13; not mentioned by John) whom later tradition identified with Nathanael (not mentioned by the synoptists), who was brought to Jesus by Philip (John 1: 45). Perhaps the identification has been made because Bartholomew is named in the synoptic lists after Philip. Eusebius, historian and bishop of Caesarea (313 ce), claims him as a missionary to India.
