St. Philip lived in Bathsaida of Galilee, along with Peter and Andrew, two more of Jesus' disciples.   Like them, on hearing of John the Baptist, he traveled to where John was speaking. There, he received his call from Jesus, "Follow me."  Almost immediately after Jesus said this to him, Philip accepted the call and then went and told Nathanael he had "found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."  Nathanael was the first person Philip led to Christ. Philip was present at the miracle of the loaves and fishes.
No one knows how St. Philip died, as his death is not recorded in the Bible or any other book.
