Who is…
Jonas

This is the name of two Biblical men.

  1. Jonas (Jonah)

    “Jonas” is the Greek transliteration of “Jonah” (Matthew 12:39-41, etc.).

  2. Jonas, the father of the apostles Peter (John 21:15-17) and Andrew

    also known as: John, Jonah or Jona

    The reading should be (also in John 1:42), as in the Revised King James Version, “John,” instead of Jonas.
