Andrew, Peter and unnamed Disciple

John 1:35-42
35 The next day John was there again with two of his disciples.
36 When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!”
37 When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus.
38 Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?” They said, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?”
39 “Come,” he replied, “and you will see.” So they went and saw where he was staying, and they spent that day with him. It was about four in the afternoon.
40 Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus.
41 The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ).
42 And he brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon son of John. You will be called Cephas” (which, when translated, is Peter ).
  Again, on the next day, John and two of his disciples were standing near where John was immersing and John gazed intently at Jesus as He was walking near by. And John said, look – the Lamb of God! And two of his disciples heard him speaking and they followed Jesus. Having turned suddenly, Jesus beheld them following Him and said to them, What purpose have you in following Me – what are you seeking? And they said to Him, Rabbi, (which is interpreted, Teacher) Where are You abiding?
Jesus said to them, Come and see! And at about ten a.m they went and saw where He was abiding, and the were with Him for the reminder of that day. Andrew, Simon Peter’s  brother, was one of the two disciples who heard John speak and followed Jesus. Andrew was the first of the two disciples to find his own brother, Simon, and say to him, We have found the Messiah  (Which is interpreted, anointed One). Then Andrew led his brother Simon, the Son of John. You shall be called Cephas (which is interpreted Peter meaning Stone).
   In summary, Two of the Baptist’s  disciples set about investigating the One whom he points out as “the Lamb of God.” Having conversed with Him they are convinced that He is the anointed One of Israel. They allow no delay in leading their brothers to Him.
