  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Bartholomew 
  son  of  Tolmai,  one  of  the  twelve  apostles  (Matt.  10:3;  Acts 
  1:13);  generally  supposed  to  have  been  the  same  as  Nathanael.  In 
  the  synoptic  gospels  Philip  and  Bartholomew  are  always  mentioned 
  together,  while  Nathanael  is  never  mentioned;  in  the  fourth 
  gospel,  on  the  other  hand,  Philip  and  Nathanael  are  similarly 
  mentioned  together,  but  nothing  is  said  of  Bartholomew.  He  was 
  one  of  the  disciples  to  whom  our  Lord  appeared  at  the  Sea  of 
  Tiberias  after  his  resurrection  (John  21:2).  He  was  also  a 
  witness  of  the  Ascension  (Acts  1:4,  12,  13).  He  was  an 
  "Israelite  indeed"  (John  1:47).
