Simon the Zealot was one of the original apostles of Jesus. Although he appears in the New Testament, nothing is mentioned that would give us insight into his character or deeds. Tradition has him teamed up with Jude, as he joined Jude in Persia and Armenia, where many believe they were both martyred. Still others believe he was crucified in Samaria, and Justus Lipsius advanced the idea that he was executed and sawn in half in Persia.
