Later he became the follower of Jesus Christ, founder of the Christian religion along with his brother peter. He was one of the twelve disciples of Jesus. It is known that he was responsible for spreading the tenets of the Christian religion though Asia Minor and Greece. People in Scotland believed that he had good social skills. In addition to that people say that he brought the first foreigners to meet Jesus. He also advised the people share their food with the people living in their neighbourhood.
