Bartholomew - by Kenneth Wyatt - Standard Print
"I wanted to show what Jesus said about him the first time He saw Bartholomew: 'Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!' No deceit was in this man! Innocent, pure-a case of 'What you see is what you get.' There is a tradition which speaks of Bartholomew's pure white robe with a purple stripe. This robe was to have lasted twenty-six years, neither wearing out nor becoming soiled. Upon reading this, I knew I would paint a purple stripe on his robe."
