Assuming you mean Peter's brother, Andrew, as Greek historians have noted, worked in the same general area as his brother Peter, primarily in Scythia and the neighboring countries in this province. These cities where situated along the Euxine Sea (Black Sea) coastal area. He stayed in Nice for two years preaching and working miracles. He then traveled to Sinope where he met his brother Peter and stayed a considerable time there. He worked in the Bosporus or modern Crimea and sailed to Paphlagonia… (Antiquities Apostolicae, Cave's pp 137-8). The peoples of Scythia eventually became the ancestors of the Scots and Anglo-Saxons via the region between the Black and Caspian Seas in the lower Ukraine valley. Today, the modern Scottish tradition states that Andrew preached to their ancestors. Significant?

A:St Andrew the apostle was crucified in the city of Azrinos. Or Archaia, or in the city of Patrae. Or somewhere else, on the orders of various local officials. It is suggested that the legend that, just like his brother Peter, Andrew refused to be crucified like Jesus and was therefore crucified on a 'St Andrews' cross dates only from the fourteenth century.

He became a disciple of St. John the Baptist who, eventually, led him to Jesus.

Jesus met Peter by the Sea of Galilee , as Peter was a fisherman, with his brother Andrew.Andrew introduced Peter to Jesus. Andrew had been a disciple of John the Baptist.A:The synoptic gospels say that Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee and saw the brothers Peter and Andrew fishing, and called them to him (Mark 1:16). John's Gospel says that Andrew was a disciple of John the Baptist; John told Andrew to follow Jesus, after which Andrew ran to fetch Peter and bring him to Jesus.Many have sought to reconcile the synoptic account with that of John's Gospel, although not very convincingly when the texts are carefully read. However, on this view, Jesus first met Peter when Andrew brought him from his house, and when Jesus saw them by the seaside, this was a second meeting.

St. Andrew (brother of Simon Peter) was one of the 12 apostles of Jesus none of whom were gnostics. Scholars generally date the gnostic gopels to the early-mid 2nd century, long after Jesus and the apostles (including St. Andrew) were dead. The gnostic gospels (e.g., gospel of Thomas, etc.) were written by others over a century later.

In the Gospels of Matthew and Mark, Jesus saw Simon Peter and Andrew mending or casting their nets by Lake Galilee, and they became his first followers. In Luke's Gospel (4:38), Jesus entered into Simon's house and cured Simon's mother, so Simon Peter must have also been an early follower.In John's Gospel, Andrew and another, unnamed disciple of John the Baptist followed Jesus, becoming his first two followers. Andrew then went and called his brother, Simon, who became the third follower of Jesus.
