About Apostle John Boanerges Boenerges means "Sons of Thunder". John's family owned a fishing business as indicated in Mark 1:20 because his father had hired servants. He was closet to the Apostle Peter as they were oft mentioned together although Peter was more outspoken than John. According to biblical facts and historical records the Apostle John Boanerges was:

Brother of James the Apostle
Was known as "Beloved Disciple"
Was a fisherman
Lived in Bethsaida, Capernaum and Jerusalem

John taught the word of the Lord in churchs located in Asia Minor
He was imprisoned in Patmos and later released
He was mentioned throughout the New testament
His personality is said to be a "man of action, ambitious with a bad temper when crossed, and was intolerant when it came to matters of the heart
As John aged and matured in his relationship of servitude to the Lord he became calmer and more tolerant of relationships while giving up his bad temper and gave his all to the Lord's service. It is said John was given a chalice of wine with poison in it and God did not allow the poison to kill him. How the Apostle John Died As we have studied in the first four disciples all died a martyr's death, it is interesting to note that the Apostle John died of natural causes.
