Apostle Matthias

Apostle Matthias was one of the twelve main disciples of Jesus Christ. He was chosen by the apostles to replace Judas Iscariot following the latter’s betrayal of Jesus and his subsequent death. His calling as an apostle is unique, as he was not personally called by Jesus. According to the Acts of the Apostles, after receiving the Holy Spirit with the other apostles on the day of Pentecost, Matthias preached the Gospel at Jerusalem and in Judea. He is believed to have died a martyr by crucifixion or may have even been stoned and then beheaded. Other traditions state that he traveled to Ethiopia, Armenia, and other countries to spread Christianity.
