ISt. Bartholomew

Bartholomew Nathanael, Talmai’s son, lived in Cana of Galilee.

Three parallel knives are his apostolic symbol. According to legend, he was a missionary in Armenia and to some scholars, he was the only one of the 12 disciples to have royal blood or noble birth.

Igama likaSanta Batholomew linikezwa ngokuthi "iNdodana kaTolmai noma iTalmai" (2 Samuweli 3: 3). UTalimayi wayeyinkosi yaseGeshuri, futhi indodakazi yakhe, uMahakha, yayingumkakhe kaDavide futhi ingunina ka-Absolomu.

Lonke uhlu lwabafundi lufaka igama likaBartolomewu (uMathewu 10: 3; uMarko 3:18; uLuka 6:14; Izenzo 1:13).

Nokho, leli kwakungelona igama lakhe lokuqala; kwakuyigama lakhe eliphakathi. Igama lakhe alinikiwe kwakunguNathanayeli, futhi uJesu wayembiza ngokuthi "ungumIsrayeli ngempela, ongenankohliso" (Johane 1:47).

Wakhula waba yindoda ezinikele ngokuphelele kuMbazi waseNazaretha futhi waba ngesinye sezithunywa zevangeli zeBandla ezazinesibindi. Kuthiwa washumayela kanye noPhilip eFrigiya, eHierapolis nase-Armenia.

Ukuphila kukaSanta Bartholomew noJesu

Lapho uFiliphu eletha uNathanayeli kuJesu, amazwi okuqala awasho kuye athi,

“Bheka umIsrayeli uqobo, engenankohliso!”

UNathanayeli wayedidekile, ezibuza ukuthi uJesu uzombona kanjani.

UJesu watshela uNathanayeli ukuthi ubemazi sonke lesi sikhathi futhi uzobona izinto ezinkulu kakhulu kunalokho abone kuze kube manje. Isimemezelo sikaNathanayeli sokuthi uJesu uyiNdodana kaNkulunkulu yisibonelo sokuqala esilotshiwe somuntu owamukela uJesu njengeNdodana kaNkulunkulu.

UBartolomew wamangala lapho uJesu ebuza,

“Ungazi kanjani?”

“Ngaphambi kokuba uFiliphu akubize ngesikhathi uphansi komkhiwane,” kuphendula uJesu. USt. Bartholomew uhumushe isambulo sikaJesu njengamasamanisi okuMlandela.

Ngaphandle kwalabo ababekhona, akekho owayengazi ukuthi iSt. Bartholomew yayiseduze nalesi sihlahla somkhiwane ngalesi sikhathi. Yize kunjalo, uJesu wayekwazi lokhu, futhi, ikakhulukazi, uJesu wathi, "Ngaphambi kokuthi uFiliphu akubize." Okungenani, ukusabela kukaSt. Bartholomew kusikisela lokhu “Rabi, uyiNdodana kaNkulunkulu! Uyinkosi yakwa-Israyeli. ” (Mathewu 1: 47,49)

“Ingabe kukhona okuhle okungavela eNazaretha?” (Joh.1: 46)

That remark elicited Christ’s response when he first met Bartholomew:

“Bheka umIsrayeli uqobo, okungekho nkohliso kuye” (Johane 1:47).

UBartholomew waba ngumlandeli kaJesu emva kokuba uKristu embulele izimo ezazibiza ubizo lukaFiliphu (“ngaphansi komkhiwane,” Johane 1:48).

“Ngiqinisile, ngiqinisile, ngithi kini: Nizakubona izulu livuliwe, nezingelosi zikaNkulunkulu zenyuka, zehlela phezu kweNdodana yomuntu,”

Their personalities were secondary without diminishing their great office of carrying tradition from first-hand experience, speaking in the name of Jesus, putting the Word Made Flesh into human words for the world’s enlightenment.

Frequently Asked Question about Saint Bartholomew

Frequently Asked Question about Saint Bartholomew

Why was Saint Bartholomew skinned?

Although the exact reason why Saint Bartholomew was skinned is unknown, there are a few hypotheses that have been put forth over the years.
Saint Bartholomew was skinned because he preached the gospel to the people of India. The King of India didn’t like that, so he had Bartholomew skinned alive.
Another possibility is that he was martyred for his beliefs, and flaying was seen as a way to humiliate him. Either way, it’s clear that Bartholomew’s martyrdom was brutal and painful, and his legacy has lived on through the centuries.

What does the name Bartholomew mean?

The name Bartholomew means “son of Talmai.” Saint Bartholomew was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ. He is also believed to be the author of the Gospel of Luke.

Are Nathanael and Bartholomew the same person?

No, Nathanael and Bartholomew are not the same person. Saint Bartholomew was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus, and his name actually means “son of Tolmai”. Nathanael is not mentioned in the Bible as far as we know. Some people believe that Nathanael and Bartholomew might be the same person because they both appear in the Gospel of John, but there’s no evidence to support this theory. So unless you have some evidence to back up your claim, I wouldn’t say that they’re the same person.

What is Saint Bartholomew famous for?

Some say that Saint Bartholomew is best known as the apostle who was skinned alive by the order of King Agrippa. But others believe that he is better remembered as the patron saint of tanners and leather workers.
