Name Change Comic

Business Cards and Name Change (Bible)
Business Cards and Name Change (Bible)

I saw this graphic and I thought I would relate to it. One I am a graphic designer and I can design business cards and too back in the day I use to collect business cards. It does seem as soon as you get the business cards in, something changes. Most of the time someones title changes, a direct line changes or more. But lets look at this comic.

The top comic shows a businessman talking to Simon. Simon ordered some business cards. The sales person hands Simon the business cards and says, “Here’s  your order sir! A thousand business cards saying “Simon the Fisherman”!

Then a note that says later that day …

In the bottom comic you have a few of the disciples and even Jesus talking to Simon. Jesus goes up to Simon and says, “Simon! From now on you shall be known as Peter!”

There you go a name change and on business cards.  Of course we know the name change is Biblical, but Simon Peter ordering business cards wasn’t. But it is a good illustration. But Jesus changed peoples names for a reason. Another big name change was Saul to Paul.

The name change from Simon to Peter is in John 1:42.
