Saint Jude Medals – Who Was Saint Jude?

Saint Jude is the patron saint of desperate cases and lost causes. With the world so turned upside down these days, it is no wonder that Saint Jude medals are flying off store shelves. People are finding themselves in tough situations and finding comfort in the fact that Saint Jude is there to help them through these difficult times. Although he is a popular saint there is quite a bit of contradictory information in the bibles and auxiliary information about him. What is known is that he was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus. It is thought that his original name was Thaddeus and it was changed when he became an apostle.

The name Jude is thought to be short for Judah which was a popular name amongst the Jews at the time. However, the Saint Jude who inspired the creation of the Saint Jude medals is not to be confused with Judas Iscariot. Judas was a different apostle of Christ but one who ultimately betrayed Jesus. According to records, Saint Jude traveled through Judea, Samaria, Mesopotamia, Syria, Lybia, and Idumaea spreading the teachings of Jesus Christ. In the year 62, he went back to Jerusalem to help his brother, Saint Simeon, get elected as the Bishop of Jerusalem.
