Saint Philip
by Peter Paul Rubens

Peter Paul Rubens (15771640) painted Saint Philip around 1612 as part of a series of portraits of the apostles, in commission of the Duke of Lerma. It is now at the Museo del Prado, Madrid.

Fifth among the apostles, Philip was from the city of Bethsaida. Philip was tested by Jesus about how to feed 5,000 people (John 6:4-7), and he was approached by Greeks who wanted to see Jesus (John 12:20-21).
