[[Image:Apostle Silas.jpg|frame|[[Apostle]] Silas]]The holy, glorious, all-laudable '''Apostle Silas''' is numbered among the [[Apostles#The_Seventy|Seventy Apostles]]. St. Silas went with Sts. [[Apostle Paul|Paul]] and [[Apostle Barnabas|Barnabas]] from Antioch to Jerusalem to settle the dispute among believers there about [[circumcision]]. He was imprisoned with [[Apostle Paul|Paul]] ([[Acts of the Apostles|Acts]] 16:16-39). Following this he went traveling with St. Paul through Asia and Macedonia and was eventually made [[Bishop]] of Corinth. He reposed peacefully in the Lord. The Church remembers St. Silas on [[July 30]] with Apostles [[Apostle Silvan|Silvanus]], [[Apostle Crescens|Crescens]], [[Apostle Epenetus|Epenetus]], and [[Apostle Andronicus|Andronicus]]; and on [[January 4]] with all the Apostles.
