40 One of the two which heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother.
41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.
42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, He said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.
Simon = hearing
Jona = dove
shall be called — future time. To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious (1 Peter 2:4).
Messiah/Christ = anointed one
stone — Peter would be a stone in the building of which Christ is the foundation
