Seealso Peter. 3 The second “Simon” among the Twelve, otherwise called Simon “the Zealot” (Luke 6:15; Acts 1:13) or “the Cananaean” (Matt 10:4; Mark 3:18). 4 Judas Iscariot’s father (John 6:71; John 13:2; John 13:26). 5 One of Jesus’s brothers (Matt 13:55; Mark 6:3). 6 The leper of Bethany in whose house Jesus was anointed with expensive ointment (Matt 26:6-13; Mark 14:3-9). 7 The Pharisee whose house was the scene of Jesus’s anointing by a sinful woman. 8 “A man of Cyrene” (North Africa), identified by Mark as father of Alexander and Rufus, who was compelled to carry Jesus’s cross (Matt 27:32; Mark 15:21; Luke 23:26). 9 The leatherworker (tanner) in Joppa with whom Peter remained “for many days”; during this stay Peter had his vision of the clean and unclean animals (Acts 9:43; Acts 10:5-6; Acts 10:32). 10 Simon Magus, a magician from Samaria who became a Christian believer and was baptized as a result of the preaching of Philip, according to (Acts 8:9-24).
