In that time,
John the Baptist was with two of his disciples.
Looking upon Jesus who came and went, he said:
"Behold the Lamb of God. »
The two disciples heard what he said,
and they followed Jesus.
Turning around, Jesus saw them following,
and said:
What are you looking for? »
They replied:
"Rabbi - which means Teacher -
where do you live? »
He said:
"Come and see. »
So they went,
saw where he was staying,
and they stayed with him that day.
It was about the tenth hour (about four o'clock in the afternoon).


Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two disciples
who had heard the word of John and followed him.
He first found Simon, his own brother, and said:
"We have found the Messiah" - which means: Christ.
Andrew brought his brother to Jesus.
Jesus looked at him and said:
"You are Simon son of John;
you shall be called Cephas "- which means: Rock.

I am seriously asking for a discussion of this passage in the Scriptures.

Can't answer the first question, other than the home of a carpenter with that of the Blessed Mother, as for who the disciples were, they were Andrew and Simon.

Jesus called Simon, Cephas (Aramaic for 'rock', which is Greek for Petros/Peter(eng) which means 'rock') because He will soon appoint him to be the "rock" of His Church.

believe there is a greater meaning to the word "Cephas" than a "stone"
Many times the psalms refer to it as the "rock".

Come, shout for joy to the Lord, acclaim the Rock of our salvation!

In the Gospel of Matthew Jesus also said:

24 Thus, the one who hears the words of mine there and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on rock.

Calling Simon "Cephas" is a prelude to Jesus establishing the papacy. This is one of the cornerstones of the Catholic faith. Jesus established the Catholic Church with Peter as the first pope. Jesus said,

"I am with you always, until the end of the world."

The disciples encountered the Blessed Virgin Mary at the home of Jesus.
I'm no expert, but wasn't this also at Caesarea Philippi, the huge pile of rock with the temple dedicated to Pan, where at the bottom of the rock was the cave called the Gates of Hell? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caesarea_Philippi

I believe the temple dedicated to Pan was built after the psalms were written.
