Quy v va cac ban than men,

Truyen ke lai rang, thanh Inhaxio chnh la cau be c Chua Giesu at gia cac mon e khi Ngi khuyen cac ong hay tr nen nh tre nho th mi c vao Nc Tri (x. Mt 18,1-2). Ngi khac lai cho rang Inhaxio chnh la cau be a a nam chiec banh va hai con ca cho Chua Giesu e Ngai lam phep la hoa banh ra nhieu cho ba ngan ngi an no ne (x. Ga 6,9).

Ngi ta con biet en Inhaxio v ngai a i theo lam mon e thanh s Gioan.

Di trieu Hoang e Trajanno, Inhaxio c tan phong lam Giam muc thanh Antiokia ke v c Giam muc Evoa. Giam muc Inhaxio la mot v muc t luon nhiet thanh vi nhiem vu coi soc oan chien. Ngay ngay ngai i tham vieng benh nhan, an ui nhng ngi sau kho, day do nhng ke dot nat, ngai luon tan lc rao giang Chua Kito cho lng dan.

Sau cuoc chien thang vi ecebalo, vua nc exie, Hoang e Trajano i kinh ly Antiokia, dan chung am mu to cao c Giam muc Inhaxio. Ho buoc toi ngai a cong khai rao giang Chua Giesu Kito la Thien Chua va xui duc dan chung ch c ton th mot mnh Thien Chua. Ngoai ra, ho con to cao c Giam muc Inhaxio a khuyen du dan chung khinh che tien tai, danh vong, t bo moi lac thu tran gian. Nghe vay, Hoang e Trajano cam gian het sc. Ong truyen ieu c Giam muc ti e tra hoi s viec. Trc li vu cao cua nhng ke gian doi, thanh nhan tuyen xng niem tin cua mnh va noi: "Ch co mnh Thien Chua chan that a tao dng nen tri at muon vat. Thien Chua a sai Con Mot Ngai xuong the lam ngi e cu chuoc nhan loai. Neu nh Hoang e ton th Thien Chua, th e quoc va vng quyen cua Hoang e se vng ben hn thach tru". Noi xong, Inhaxio b ngi ta dan i nem cho s t can xe e mua vui cho dan chung.
