The Rock

How firm is your faith? Is it rock solid or is it sometimes spongy? There is a man in the Bible whose faith was so strong that Jesus called him “The Rock.”  The new name, Cephas, comes from Aramaic, meaning “rock” or “stone.” This was the language of Jews in Jesus’ day. In the Greek, the meaning is the same.  The man is called Cephas 9 times in the New Testament, and 156 times he is called Peter. On Sunday morning, at our English language service, we’ll look at the man called Simon Peter.
