He was the most outspoken and enthusiastic disciples, one of Jesus’ best friends, an apostle and a “pillar” of the church.
Simon was born in Bethsaida and lived in Capernaum. Both cities were on the coast of the Sea of Galilee. He grew up under the trade of a fisherman with his older brother Andrew.
