Who invited Peter to Jesus?


Jesus himself
Peter himself
None of the above

The correct answer is D.


According to the Bible, specifically in the book of John 1:40-42, it was Andrew who first met Jesus after hearing John the Baptist's declaration about Him being the "Lamb of God". Andrew, who was originally a disciple of John the Baptist, followed Jesus and spent a day with Him. Andrew was so touched by Jesus' teachings and personality that he invited his brother Simon Peter to meet Jesus as well. Therefore, the answer to the question is Andrew, as stated in option D.

It's interesting to note that Peter, whose original name was Simon, was given the name Peter by Jesus Himself. The name Peter means "rock" and it signifies the important role Peter would play in the establishment of the Christian church.

This narrative is a significant event in the New Testament as it marks the beginning of Jesus' ministry and the gathering of His disciples. It also demonstrates the transformative power of Jesus' teachings, as seen in Andrew's immediate decision to share his encounter with his brother, Peter.
