(Saint) Prophet, Martyr (July 6) (7th century B.C.) One of the Greater Prophets and writer of a Book in the Canon of Holy Scripture. Tradition tells us that he was sawn in two (Hebrews 11:37) by order of King Manasses of Juda (B.C. 68), and buried under an oak tree. His tomb was still recognised in the fifth century of our era, when his relics were enshrined in a Christian church. His Feast is generally kept in the East; but also in some churches of the West.
