Bartholomew: Apostles of Jesus Christ Bible Study
This is the Second bible study of a twelve week bible study called the "Twelve Apostles-Foundation of Christ's Bride (The Holy City)". Each week we will study one of the twelve apostles which were Jesus Christ's apostles and referred to as the foundation of Christ's Holy City. In the Revelations chapter 21, one of seven angel's came to John telling him that he would show him the bride, the Lamb's (Jesus Christ) wife. He then showed the apostle the Holy Jerusalem of heaven. A description is given, part of that description reveals that the twelve disciples names would represent the twelve foundations of this Holy city. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb" Revelations 21:14 The Apostles play an important role in the Holy City The apostles have significant importance as the foundation of the Holy City so it makes sense that we should know who they were, what they taught, why it was important, and how they died. This Second study is on the Apostle Bartholomew one of Jesus Christ's disciples (apostles).

Read Verses Listing Bartholomew as a disciple of Christ
Bartholomew also referred to as Nathaniel It is interesting to note:"Bartholomew and Nathanael are recorded in the listings of the twelve apostles, but never together. In Matthew, Mark and Luke, Bartholomew is listed as one of the twelve, but Nathanael is not. Conversely, in John, Nathanael is listed, but Bartholomew is not. From that, many logically assume that Bartholomew and Nathanael were actually the same man who was known by two names, just as, for example, Peter was also known as Simon. Another clue that Bartholomew and Nathanael were the same apostle is that they are commonly mentioned with the apostle Philip e.g. "Philip and Bartholomew" (Matthew 10:3, Mark 3:18, Luke 6:14) or "Philip findeth Nathanael" (John 1:45 KJV)."
