I think Jesus said it best: "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life."

Bartholomew (aka Nathanael)

Citadel Hill, in Jordan. Something not unlike what Bartholomew and Philip probably saw on their way to spread the gospel. Citadel Hill, in Jordan. Something not unlike what Bartholomew and Philip probably saw on their way to spread the gospel. Pixabay

Today is the feast of St. Bartholomew, also known as Nathanael.

I enjoyed researching him while writing Twenty Mysteries. In The Proclamation of the Kingdom, he is paired with Philip and together, they visit the Decapolis, the region with a strong Hellenistic culture. When they start in the village of Scythopolis to tell people about Jesus, they are challenged by a 'doctor' there. I can't give away what happens next, but it's probably the grossest scene in the entire book...
