1.  John pointed the disciples towards Jesus as the one they should follow. Remember the people in your life who have pointed you in a new and life-giving direction? Perhaps in some cases this may have involved directing you away from your association with them – e.g., leaving home, changing jobs, etc.

2.  Jesus invited the disciples to come and see how he lived. How have you come to learn how Jesus lived, and what he was looking for in life? How has this attracted you to follow him?

3.  What is your experience of gathering in small groups to learn to live like Jesus by listening to the gospel together? Where two or three are gathered in his name, Jesus is there in the midst of them.

4.  Andrew did not keep the good news to himself but invited his brother to join him in following Jesus. What is your experience of receiving, or giving, an invitation to join in some worthwhile venture?

  Why is Peter called Cephas?

His original name was Simon. In the Aramaic language which Jesus and the apostles spoke, Cephas means rock. Peter is its Greek translation and Latin took on the Greek name. By giving him this new name Jesus was indicating his future role as the rock on which he would found his church. The letters of Paul refer to him as Cephas eight times and as Peter twice. The Gospels which were written later than Paul’s letters nearly always use the Greek name, Peter, as the Christian church was by then using Greek and Latin far more than Aramaic.
