  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Andrew 
  manliness,  a  Greek  name  one  of  the  apostles  of  our  Lord.  He  was 
  of  Bethsaida  in  Galilee  (John  1:44),  and  was  the  brother  of 
  Simon  Peter  (Matt.  4:18;  10:2).  On  one  occasion  John  the 
  Baptist,  whose  disciple  he  then  was  pointing  to  Jesus,  said 
  "Behold  the  Lamb  of  God"  (John  1:40);  and  Andrew,  hearing  him 
  immediately  became  a  follower  of  Jesus,  the  first  of  his 
  disciples.  After  he  had  been  led  to  recognize  Jesus  as  the 
  Messiah,  his  first  care  was  to  bring  also  his  brother  Simon  to 
  Jesus.  The  two  brothers  seem  to  have  after  this  pursued  for  a 
  while  their  usual  calling  as  fishermen,  and  did  not  become  the 
  stated  attendants  of  the  Lord  till  after  John's  imprisonment 
  (Matt.  4:18,  19;  Mark  1:16,  17).  Very  little  is  related  of 
  Andrew.  He  was  one  of  the  confidential  disciples  (John  6:8; 
  12:22),  and  with  Peter,  James,  and  John  inquired  of  our  Lord 
  privately  regarding  his  future  coming  (Mark  13:3).  He  was 
  present  at  the  feeding  of  the  five  thousand  (John  6:9),  and  he 
  introduced  the  Greeks  who  desired  to  see  Jesus  (John  12:22);  but 
  of  his  subsequent  history  little  is  known  It  is  noteworthy  that 
  Andrew  thrice  brings  others  to  Christ,  (1)  Peter;  (2)  the  lad 
  with  the  loaves;  and  (3)  certain  Greeks.  These  incidents  may  be 
  regarded  as  a  key  to  his  character.
