WHAT BECAME OF THE DISCIPLES OF JESUS THE CHRIST?:<quoted text>
There was also no religion left behind by Jesus. Disciples were dumb and did not teach anything.
What was there for them to teach?
According to Hippolytus:
'Andrew preached to the Scythians [modern day Georgia] and Thracians [modern day Bulgaria], and was crucified, suspended on an olive tree, at Patrae, a town of Achaia [Greece]; and there too he was buried'.
According to Hippolytus, Bartholomew preached in India:
Bartholomew, again, preached to the Indians, to whom he also gave the Gospel according to Matthew, and was crucified with his head downward, and was buried in Allanum, a town of the great Armenia [modern day southern Georgia].
in his Church History, confirms the ministry of Bartholomew in India, and adds an eye witness account:
About that time, Pantaenus, a man highly distinguished for his learning, had charge of the school of the faithful in Alexandria... Pantaenus...is said to have gone to India. It is reported that among persons there who knew of Christ, he found the Gospel according to Matthew, which had anticipated his own arrival. For Bartholomew, one of the apostles, had preached to them, and left with them the writing of Matthew in the Hebrew language, which they had preserved till that time.----(Book 5, Chapter 10)
JAMES, Son of Alphaeus
Hippolytus identifies that James was stoned to death in Jerusalem:
'And James the son of Alphaeus, when preaching in Jerusalem, was stoned to death by the Jews, and was buried there beside the temple.'
JAMES, Son of Zebedee
James was the brother of John,
According to the Book of Acts in the New Testament, James was killed by Herod:

According to Hippolytus, John was banished by Domitian to the Isle of Patmos, and later died in Ephesus:
John, again, in Asia, was banished by Domitian the king to the isle of Patmos, in which also he wrote his Gospel and saw the apocalyptic vision; and in Trajan's time he fell asleep at Ephesus, where his remains were sought for, but could not be found.
According to Hippolytus:
Matthew wrote the Gospel in the Hebrew tongue, and published it at Jerusalem, and fell asleep at Hierees, a town of Parthia.\224 [Parthia is near modern day Tehran]
Irenaeus (c. 180 A.D.) mentions that Peter and Paul founded the Church in Rome:
Eusebius records that Peter was put to death under Nero in Rome.
Hippolytus confirmed the fact that Peter was crucified by Nero in Rome:
'Peter preached the Gospel in Pontus, and Galatia, and Cappadocia, and Betania, and Italy, and Asia, and was afterwards crucified by Nero in Rome with his head downward, as he had himself desired to suffer in that manner.'
According to Hippolytus, Philip preached and was executed in what today is eastern Turkey:
'Philip preached in Phrygia, and was crucified in Hierapolis with his head downward in the time of Domitian, and was buried there.'
