The Apostles After Jesus : A History of the Apostles - Separating Tradition and History
by David Criswell




Overview -
The book of Acts ends with the Apostle Paul sitting in prison awaiting trial. But what happened to Paul afterwards? Was he acquitted? Did Nero execute him? What of the other apostles? Early church writings contain many works of historical fiction which embellish the histories of the great apostles to such an extent that they are seen performing greater miracles than Moses, Elijah, and Jesus put together. Andrew, for example, is depicted as resurrecting "a great multitude" including children and cattle. What are we to make of such wild embellishments? Can we separate history from tradition? Dr. Criswell, best known for his Biblical Controversies series, sets out to answer that very question. Within these pages, the various histories, traditions, and legends are presented and then evaluated and debated. The reader will thus be able to make his own determinations as to what really happened to the apostles, as well as their companions including men such as Barnabas, Luke, Mark, Aquila, Barsabas, Apollos, and many others. The Apostles After Jesus also contains many maps, charts, and art to help the reader better understand the history of the disciples of Christ.
