We know that Jesus commanded his disciples to go to make disciples of all nations and to spread the word to the entire world (Matthew 28:19), but we know little of what happened to the twelve disciples. We have some record about them in the Book of Acts, but it is not recorded where they lived, if they founded a community or not, where and how they died...
Is there any historical evidence as to what happened to the twelve disciples? I'm restricting this question to Peter, John and James who can be regarded as the main disciples.
There are some legends regarding the disciples, although I don't know how historically accurate they are:
- John lived and died in Ephesus
- James preached in the actual territory of Spain
- Peter went to Rome where he was also martyred
Are these legends true?
