      n : (New Testament) disciple of Jesus; brother of Peter; patron
          saint of Scotland [syn: Saint Andrew, St. Andrew, Saint
          Andrew the Apostle]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    manliness, a Greek name; one of the apostles of our Lord. He was
    of Bethsaida in Galilee (John 1:44), and was the brother of
    Simon Peter (Matt. 4:18; 10:2). On one occasion John the
    Baptist, whose disciple he then was, pointing to Jesus, said,
    "Behold the Lamb of God" (John 1:40); and Andrew, hearing him,
    immediately became a follower of Jesus, the first of his
    disciples. After he had been led to recognize Jesus as the
    Messiah, his first care was to bring also his brother Simon to
    Jesus. The two brothers seem to have after this pursued for a
    while their usual calling as fishermen, and did not become the
    stated attendants of the Lord till after John's imprisonment
    (Matt. 4:18, 19; Mark 1:16, 17). Very little is related of
    Andrew. He was one of the confidential disciples (John 6:8;
    12:22), and with Peter, James, and John inquired of our Lord
    privately regarding his future coming (Mark 13:3). He was
    present at the feeding of the five thousand (John 6:9), and he
    introduced the Greeks who desired to see Jesus (John 12:22); but
    of his subsequent history little is known. It is noteworthy that
    Andrew thrice brings others to Christ, (1) Peter; (2) the lad
    with the loaves; and (3) certain Greeks. These incidents may be
    regarded as a key to his character.
