St. Peter By: payton Kadivar

St. Peter was also known as Simon Peter who later changes his name to Peter from Simon. He was born in 1 AD and died between 64 and 68 AD. Peter is known as the first pope of the Roman Catholic Church and also the "Apostles of the Apostles." Peter had humble beginnings and became one of the twelve disciples. Peter followed Jesus very faithfully.

The New Testament indicates that Peter is the son of John. It also indicates that he was from the village of Bethsaida in the province of Galilee. Peter has a brother named Andrew who was an apostle just like Peter

In the Christian tradition, it says that Peter was crucified in Rome under the Emperor Augustus Caesar. He was crucified upside down almost as the same was as Jesus. His remains are said to be those contained in the underground Confessio of St. Peter's Basilica
