Peter was originally named Simon from birth. Simon was originally from Bethsaida (John 1:44) and lived in Capernaum (Mark 1:29). He was married (1 Corinthians 9:5), and ran a successful fishing business with James and John. Simon has a biological brother named Andrew. Andrew became a follower of Jesus through the ministry of John the Baptist (John 1:35-36). Subsequently, Andrew immediately went to find his brother to bring him to Jesus.
