Bartholomew (or Nathanael)
John 1:47 -- Jesus saw Nathanael coming to Him, and said of him: "Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile."
Bartholomew has IMAGINATION as his dominant spiritual attribute.
The quality of IMAGINATION represented in Bartholomew was the divine "imaging" quality of creativeness through which spiritual ideas are made manifest. When Philip found Nathanael sitting under a fig tree, and told him he had found the Messiah, Nathanael's first reply was: "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?"
Nathanael was one of the first six men chosen as a Disciple by Jesus, who recognized him as a man of vision and imagination. Philip bade him "Come and see," and when he had come to Christ, and was convinced, he declared: "thou are the Son of God; thou art King of Israel."
As Bartholomew, after Pentecost, he traveled with Philip throughout the East -- to Mesopotamia, Persia, Egypt, and to Armenia where he was "martyred."

BARTHOLOMEW, also NATHANAEL The missionary work of Bartholomew is linked with Armenia (present day Armenia, eastern Turkey, northern Iraq, north western Iran) and India. Other locations include Egypt, Arabia, Ethiopia and Persia (Iran). Traditionally he met his death by being flayed or skinned alive, and then beheaded. Derbent, north of present day Baku on the Caspian Sea may have been his place of martyrdom. Alternatively he may have suffered this cruel fate in what is now India.
