Acts of Andrew  


Acts of Andrew is the earliest testimony of the acts and miracles of the Apostle Andrew.

Traditionally the text is said to have been based on the Acts of John and the Acts of Peter. The miracles are extremely supernatural, and extravagant. For example, aside from the usual miracles of raising the dead, healing the blind, and so forth, he survives being placed amongst fierce animals, calms storms, and defeats armies simply by crossing himself.

There is also a great deal of moralising - Andrew causes an embryo which was illegitimate to die, and also rescues a boy from his incestuous mother, an act resulting in her laying false charges against them, requiring God to send an earthquake to free Andrew and the boy.

Eusebius of Caesarea dismissed the work as heretic and absurd.
