Simon bar-Jonah, who was also called Peter, was one of the first disciples Jesus called to follow Him (Matt. 4:18). Simon had a younger brother Andrew. There was another disciple named Simon, but he was refered to as the zealot (Matt. 10:4). Simon-Peter was a part of Jesus' inner circle of discples and was often close to Jesus throughout His minsitry. Although Simon-Peter tended to rush into things (trying to disperse children, was somwhat contemptuous of non-Jews), he was also the first to recognize Jesus as the Messiah and witnesses Jesus' transfiguration on the mountain (Matt. 17:1-4). Although Simon-Peter fell asleep when Jesus was praying in Gesthsemane, he tried to take on the army when they came to arrest Jesus. Simon-Peter however, later denied Jesus, fearing that he also would be arrested. Simon-Peter was one of the first of the male disciples to visit the empty tomb after Jesus ahs been resurrected. Ultimately, Simon-Peter became the leader of the Christian movement in Jerusalem. The best reading for this are the books of Matthew and Acts.
Only one did, that was Simon Peter. He denied knowing Jesus three times.
No, Simon Peter was a fisherman who was called by Jesus Christ to be one of His disciples and later become one of the original 12 apostles.
Simon Peter was a very close follower of Jesus. His name was originally Simon, but Jesus also called him Peter, which means rock. Since there are two "Simon"s in Jesus' group of disciples, The one we are talking about is generally known as Simon Peter. He is recognized as the first Pope of the Catholic Church.
According to the Gospel of John, the one who told Jesus about the loaves of bread and fish was one of his disciples, Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter.

ANSWER:John:1:40: One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.Matthew:4:18-20: And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.Matthew:10:2: Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother.Answer In Matthew's Gospel and Mark's Gospel, Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee when he called the brothers, Simon Peter and Andrew. They were the first disciples.In Luke's Gospel, Peter seems to have been the first disciple.In John's Gospel Andrew, and another of the disciples of John the Baptist were the first disciples of Jesus. Peter was the third.AnswerThe four Gospels each list the disciples in a different order. The ONLY ONE that occupies the same place in that order is PETER (also called Simon and Simon Peter). Yes Andrew went and found Peter and brought him to Jesus but it was not a situation of first in line gets to be it. Jesus told Peter "Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation a stone". Jesus chose Peter as his first disciple.
Yes he was one of Jesus disciples.
We only know the "occupations" of five or six of the Apostles (the 12 Disciples). Simon Peter, Andrew, James and John (the sons of Zebedee) where all fishermen; Matthew was a tax collector. Simon was known as "the Zealot"; this was likely his "occupation." The Bible is silent on the occupations of the rest of the Apostles -- the other James, Judas, Phillip, Thomas, Batholomew (also known as Nathan), and Thaddeus (some scholars believe that Thaddeus was also known as Jude). The 12 disciples didn't have "jobs" in that sense. A job is when you're paid for your work, while the 12 disciples' work with Jesus was voluntary. They, each in turn, were all called by Jesus himself to follow him. They were asked, not forced. Therefore they had a choice between whether to ditch their lives and follow Jesus or keep their lives as they were. Even though some disciples had more to say with Jesus (e.g., Peter), they all had the same rank ... in a weird sort of way. You could call their tasks, what Jesus asked them to do, jobs. You could say that it was the ''job'' of 1 of Jesus' trusted disciples to betray him on the night of the last supper. You could say it was Simon/Peter's ''job'' to be Jesus' rock, on which he would build his church. Simon bar-Jonah, who was also called Peter, was one of the first disciples Jesus called to follow Him (Matt. 4:18). Simon had a younger brother Andrew. There was another disciple named Simon, but he was referred to as the zealot (Matt. 10:4). Simon-Peter was a part of Jesus' inner circle of disciples and was often close to Jesus throughout His ministry. Although Simon-Peter tended to rush into things (trying to disperse children, was somewhat contemptuous of non-Jews), he was also the first to recognize Jesus as the Messiah and witnesses Jesus' transfiguration on the mountain (Matt. 17:1-4). Although Simon-Peter fell asleep when Jesus was praying in Gethsemane, he tried to take on the army when they came to arrest Jesus. Simon-Peter however, later denied Jesus, fearing that he also would be arrested. Simon-Peter was one of the first of the male disciples to visit the empty tomb after Jesus was resurrected. Ultimately, Simon-Peter became the leader of the Christian movement in Jerusalem. The best reading for this are the books of Matthew and Acts. The jobs of the disciples were very different, if you're talking about their jobs before they dropped everything and followed Jesus. Some were doctors, some were fishermen. After Jesus asked them to leave everything they had (Their families, their possessions, their jobs, their source of money) and follow Him, they were just beginning a long journey. Their "jobs" were to follow Jesus and be faithful Christians and Followers of Him.
No. John had his own disciples.
No, "zealot" was not a term applied to the twelve, though it can rightly be said that they were "zealous" for Jesus.Only one of Jesus' twelve, a second Simon (not Peter), was known as "the zealot" (Luke 6:15).
Each Gospel has its own account of the calling of the disciples with both similarities and differences. In any case the question is unanswerable since no-one tells us who was first, it merely tells us who was called.
One of Jesus' disciples named Simon Peter was Crucified upside down. The reason he was upside down is that he did not count himself worthy to be crucified in the same way as Jesus.
He was not one of the 12 disciples.
Matthew (Levi) was a tax collector Simon Peter, Andrew, James (son of Zebedee) and John were fishermen Simon (different from Simon Peter) was a zealot The roles of Philip, Bartholomew, Thomas, James son of Alphaeus, Thaddaeus and Judas Iscariot are not mentioned in the book of Matthew. Luke, not one of the twelve disciples, but a follower of Jesus who presumably recorded the gospel Luke was a physician.
AnswerIn Mark and Matthew, Jesus saw Peter and his brother Andrew together fishing, and called them to follow him. So, Andrew became an apostle at the same time as Peter, when Jesus began to preach. In Luke, Jesus met Simon Peter in his mother's house, but did not call him at that stage. Later, he helped some fishermen in a boat - James and John, sons of Zebedee, and Simon. Jesus told Simon that he would follow Jesus, so the three left their boat and followed Jesus. Apparently Andrew at some stage also joined Jesus, because when Jesus chose his twelve disciples, he included Andrew among them.In John's Gospel, Andrew was a disciple of John the Baptist. John told him and another disciple to follow Jesus. Later, Andrew fetched his brother Simon, who joined the other disciples. Once again, Andrew was one of the first two disciples, although this time before his brother Simon Peter.
One of the twelve disciples of Jesus.
Judas - one of his 12 disciples.
Judas, he was the only one
