Simon, whom he also named Peter
Which signifies a rock, or stone, as Cephas also does, see ( John 1:42 ) from his constancy, steadfastness, and solidity:
and Andrew his brother;
who was called at the same time with him, and were brethren, both in nature and grace:
James and John:
the two sons of Zebedee, who were called next:
Philip and Bartholomew;
the latter of these is by some thought to be Nathanael.
