The holy, glorious, all-laudable '''Apostle Evodius''' (also known as '''Euodios of Antioch''', ''Euodus'', ''Euodias'', ''Evodias'', ''Evodios'')  is numbered among the [[Apostles#The_Seventy|Seventy Apostles]], and was first [[bishop]] of Syrian [[Church of Antioch|Antioch]], after the holy [[Apostle Peter]].  He is commemorated by the Church on [[September 7]] with [[Apostle Onesiphorus]].  The Apostles of the 70 were chosen and sent by the Lord [[Jesus Christ]] himself to preach. They were chosen some time after the selection of the Twelve Apostles ([[Gospel of Luke|Luke]] 10:1-24).  All seventy are commemorated by the Church on [[January 4]].
Hieromartyr [[Ignatius of Antioch|Ignatius]] the God-Bearer, [[disciple]] of the holy [[Apostle John]] the Theologian, mentions him in his ''Letter to the Antiochians'': "Remember your blessed father Evodius, who was made your first pastor by the Apostles."
In one of St. Evodus' several compositions, he wrote that the [[Theotokos]] gave birth to the [[Jesus Christ|Savior]] of the world at the age of fifteen. Other writings of the saint have not survived. A book entitled ''The Star'' or ''The Beacon'' is mentioned by the fourteenth-century Church historian Nicephorus Callistus.
St. Evodius served as bishop for 27 years and died as a [[martyr]] in the year 66, under the emperor Nero (54-68).
