 THE MARTYRDOM OF ST. PHILIP
In an attempt to harmonize these contradictory versions, Santiago de la Voragine says in the Golden Legend: "The saint apostle could have been crucified first; then, before he passed away, and in order to increase his sufferings, he was descended and skinned and finally, while still alive, he was beheaded".
Recent researchs prove that the painting represents the martyrdom of St. Philip; this apostle was Philip IV's patron saint and presumably Ribera painted the canvas upon the royal commission, as it is recorded in the Alcázar in Madrid in 1666.
The splendid nude (in contrast to the vulgarity of the saint's head, compared by Pantoja to a rude Napolitan fisherman's), the rich colouring, the wide and bright sky and, on the left, the delicious slight brushstrokes-made child sleeping in his mother's arms, reveal that this is an artist's mature work, painted in 1639.

 Daily Bible Study - Philip The Apostle
Philip, from the Greek name (pronounced) fil-ip-pohs, was one of the twelve apostles (not to be confused with Philip The Evangelist).
He was from Bethsaida, as were at least two of the other apostles, the brothers Peter and Andrew.
Although apparently not one of the apostles in The Inner Circle, Philip was more prominent, at least as far as the Bible record is concerned, than some others of the Twelve - a result more of personality than greater ability or righteousness.
