The Bible does not say. Paul talked about his death, though. His work was dangerous, and he knew it would be the death of him. He said, “The Holy Spirit testifies to me in every city that imprisonment and persecutions are waiting for me. But I do not count my life of any value to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the good news of God’s grace.” (NRSV, Acts 20:23–24) According to church tradition, Paul was beheaded by Nero around 67 C.E.
