Origin of the name CEPHAS.
Etymology of the name CEPHAS.
Meaning of the baby name CEPHAS.

  

CEPHAS.  Biblical. [Aramaic Kepha = "a rock" or "stone," a word for which the Apostle John substitutes Petros = "Peter" as the Greek equivalent].

    An appellation given by Jesus to the Apostle Simon.  It was from it that his best-known name Peter arose.  [Peter.]  (John i. 42; 1 Cor. i. 12; iii. 22; ix. 5; xv. 5; Gal. ii. 9.)  The R.V. thus words the first of these passages, "Thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation Peter."  On the margin there is the name, "That is Rock or Stone." (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)
