Simon Peter was the brother to Andrew. He was the most outspoken of the disciples. Along with the brothers James and John, he made up the third of the inner circle of Jesus’ closest disciples. He probably wrote 1 and 2 Peter. His Greek name, Simon, and Aramaic name, Cephas, both mean rock.

After Jesus’ ascension to heaven, Peter became the dominant leader of the disciples. Throughout the first part of the book of Acts he is the fiery preacher among the Jews. The last part of the book is dominated by Paul and his outreach to the Gentiles.
