Apostle James (1st to suffer martyrdom)
It has been said that when the apostle James was led out to die, a man
who had brought false accusations against him walked with him to the
place of execution. He had doubtless expected to see James looking pale
and frightened but he saw him, instead, bright and joyous, like a
conqueror who had won a great battle. The false witness greatly
wondered at this and became convinced that the Savior in whom the
prisoner by his side believed must be the true God or He could not
impart such cheerfulness and courage to a man about to die. The man
himself, therefore, became a convert to Christianity and was condemned
to die with James the apostle ( both were consequently beheaded on the
same day and with the same sword.) Read more Here.
