So here is Today’s Gospel…
John was standing with two of his disciples,and as he watched Jesus walk by, he said,“Behold, the Lamb of God.”
The two disciples heard what he said and followed Jesus. Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them,“What are you looking for?”
They said to him, “Rabbi” — which translated means Teacher —,“where are you staying?”
He said to them, “Come, and you will see.” So they went and saw where Jesus was staying,and they stayed with him that day.
It was about four in the afternoon. Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two who heard John and followed Jesus.
He first found his own brother Simon and told him, “We have found the Messiah” — which is translated Christ —. Then he brought him to Jesus.
Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon the son of John; you will be called Cephas” — which is translated Peter.
I’ve bolded the three “translations” included in the text.
Note that “Rabbi” is translated into English, 'Teacher" but "Messiah is translated into an English pronunciation of the Greek words Christo and Petros…:shrug:
Wouldn’t it have been more clear if they had been consistent?"
"We have found the Messiah” — which is translated Savior.
"you will be called Cephas” — which is translated Rock.
Like I say - This is something of a pet peeve of mine…
