St Jude Thaddeus, Apostle Art Photos
St Jude Thaddeus Apostle (1stC) is clearly identified as an Apostle by many sources, but little is known about his life. According to one legend, he preached in Syria, Mesopotamia & Persia where he was clubbed to death. Judas Thaddeus is not to be confused with Judas Iscariot, betrayer of Christ.
