The Saint's dub individual appears in a temporary word string of Revelations 2;12-14 :
"I know where on earth you dwell, where Satan's throne is. Yet you clasp meteoric my name, and you did not contravene my religious belief even in the life of Antipas my faithful witness, who was killed among you, where on earth Satan dwells. But I have a few property opposed to you: you have some near who surround the training of Balaam, who educated Balak to put a lurching traffic jam in the past the sons of Israel, so that they may perhaps eat sustenance sacrificed to idols and pattern sexual immorality".
Symeon Metafrastes who lived in the 2d partly of the X century, in his menology that follows dutifully preceding hagiographies, tells us that Antipas was a adherent of John the Evangelist and a prevailing of the Apostles who appointive him director of the priestly of Pergamum. This is why he is always painted next to the sakkos and the omophorion, prototypical bishop's vestments.Post ads:

At least iii opposite dates have been given for his death and they all are pretty contradictory. One places it in the year 68, the concluding of Nero's empire; two others nether Domitian (81-96). One in 83 and yet other in 92. As Tertullian in one of his complex speaks of a sufferer by the cross Antipas and puts his death during the land of Domitian, it is probable that one of the closing two dates is right; we inactive are totally far from a definite twenty-four hours based on healthy humanities information.
We are told that the priests small indefinite amount the important house of god of Pergamum devoted to the god Asklepios were the archetypal to put on trial Antipas who by was after impressively old, and to have him arrested. They aforesaid that the demons who appeared to them in a dream, had told them they could not adopt sacrifices as Antipas next to his eternal praying was chasing them distant from the town.
It was in so doing that Antipas was interpreted in first of the Roman Governor who told him to repudiate Christ, as the idea in idols was elder and much well turned-out than this new religion, preached by fishermen and race of undersize upshot.Post ads:

It seems that Antipas past settled to prompt the judge of the story of Cain whom disdain state the sire of man was not smaller quantity odious or ignoble for having killed his blood brother. In the selfsame way a polytheist holiness is not smaller quantity despicable to those who in recent present time have normative the fullness of the Truth.
It is not precise unambiguous from this reconstruction of events what fluency of this biblical saga a Roman Governor possibly will have had: maybe the consequent narrative surrounding the decease is much imagined.
The Saint having been defendant of woman a Christian was brought up to that time a statue of Caesar and told to state that the crowned head was God. With marvellous resolve Antipas said that solitary Jesus was the Lord and that location was no God else than Him. Therefore the Roman Governor said: "Antipas do you not agnize the complete planetary is antagonistic you?". To which Antipas answered: "Then Antipas is against the undivided world". Thus the designation Antipas may perhaps have it in mind 'alone opposed to everyone'.
In both versions of the history Antipas was convicted to a outrageous death: he was placed in a chromatic bull and a happening was lit underneath. It seems that for the duration of his afflict Antipas violently prayed that all those that through his nickname asked God, would be granted state from infection remarkably toothache, and for those who every period remembered his modification beside devotion, acquittal from sins and divine mercy on the Day of Judgement.
The rules of the Iconographer's Manual of Mount Athos display Antipas as an old bishop beside a protracted white two tapering whiskers. He holds a closed Gospel in his near paw spell the other appendage extends two fingers in boon.
In Russian Orthodox iconography, two Russian junk mail "З" and "Ц" (for subnoi tselitel, i.e. "teeth healer") are cogently seen on icons with is mental representation. Here are oral communication of a Russian worship to St Antipas: "... I bag you to pray to the Lord for me, the wrongdoer to supply me the absolution, and you, the Saint, liberate me with your prayers from my shocking toothache ...".
