A Double Martyrdom

After receiving the Holy Spirit, the Apostles began to heartily share the good news of Christ. Apostles Simon and Jude purportedly did some extensive traveling and then met up with each other in Persia. After some initial success in evangelizing there, some local religious leaders (Zoroastrian) incited a riot against the two apostles and they were both killed.
