- Is Kephas a common name ?
a short note in " Peter in the New Testament" (n. 42, p. 113 in french
the authors say that Peter-Kephas was not common either in greek,
Some interrogations :
-- Is this true ?
-- is Caïphe an equivalent of Kephas ?
-- what is the hebrew version of Kephas ?
I ask the question because this note is not affirmative on the subject.

- Just an interesting side note.The Gospel of John says the Kephas was the name that Jesus gave to Peter, yet the name only appears on the lips of Paul, eight times I believe. If John is right one would have to conclude that Jesus and Paul are the same person.RickRichmondRickr370@...
