Philip the Disciple

Philip was among the twelve disciples of Jesus. He was from Bethsaida, at the north of the Sea of Galilee. We know with reasonable certainty that he lived for many years as a bishop, and died in great honor. Polycrates says Philip was one of the great "lights of Asia." As Judas was the treasurer and took care of their financial matters, Philip was the one who was responsible for seeing to it that they always had food. Philip means horse lover.

Eusebius mentions two of his daughters who were virgins and one was buried and died at Ephesus. It cannot be regarded as certain that there has not been some confusion between Philip the apostle and Philip the deacon; but there is no reason why they should not both have had virgin daughters.

Tradition says that 30 years after the crucifixion, Philip the apostle went to Britain and founded the church at Glastonbury to which Joseph of Arimathaea brought the Holy Grail, the cup used at the Last Supper. That sounds more like a fairy tail but that's the way traditions go. Something must have happened to the Holy Grail. Who knows?

Philip is said to have done missionary work in Phrygia, Scythia and Parthia and labored diligently in Upper Asia, suffering martyrdom at Heliopolis, Phrygia. He was scourged, thrown into prison, and afterwards crucified in AD 54.
[318, 329, 330, 331, 343, 18]
