John 1:40-42 The Passion Translation (TPT)

40–41 One of the two disciples who heard John’s words and began to follow Jesus was a man named Andrew.[a] He went and found his brother, Simon, and told him, “We have found the Anointed One!”[b] (Which is translated, the Christ.) 42 Then Andrew brought Simon to meet him. When Jesus gazed upon Andrew’s brother, he prophesied to him, “You are Simon and your father’s name is John.[c] But from now on you will be called Cephas” (which means, Peter the Rock).[d]


  1. John 1:40 Andrew means “brave.”
  2. John 1:40 Or “Messiah.” The word messiah is taken from the Hebrew verb, “to anoint with oil.” Jesus Christ is the One anointed to deliver, to save, and to reconcile us back to God.
  3. John 1:42 The Aramaic can also be translated “You are Simon, son of the dove.” Simon means “one who hears.”
  4. John 1:42 The Aramaic word is keefa, which means “rock.” It is anglicized as “Peter.” This parenthetical statement is not found in the Aramaic, but only in Greek manuscripts. It appears that the Greek text is admitting it is a translation from the Aramaic.
