Hi K,I posted a response to your comment on my blog:I've also emailed a Christian Apologist about this and he told me that there really is no solid evidence that any of Jesus' disciples were martyred. We do have some church accounts of Peter being martyred, but they are late. The apologist I spoke to (J.P. Holding) insists that this doesn't mean the account is unreliable, but I think it is awfully shaky evidence to base one's worldview of off. Besides, Christians (now and days of yore) seem to have a kind of "Persecution Complex" so it all too easy for me to imagine a legend like this coming to be after decades (or centuries!).
