Quali personaggi storici vengono menzionati da questo apocrifo?

S: vengono citati i primi martiri, tra cui Giovanni Battista. Erodiade coincide con Salome.

1 Da questo scritto estrapoliamo la seguente cronologia di martiri:

For Peter also, who shines so brightly among the band of apostles, was condemned to the cross and to death; and James, the son of thunder was slain by Herod Agrippa with the sword. Moreover, Stephen also was stoned, who was the first to run the course of martyrdom. What, too, wilt thou say of John the Baptist? Thou wilt surely acknowledge his distinguished fortitude and boldness of speech, when he preferred death rather than keep silence about conjugal infidelity, and the adulteress received his head as a reward for her dancing?
