Matthew 16:17

Καὶ ἀποκριθεὶς ὁ Ἰησοῦς, εἶπεν αὐτῷ· μακάριος εἶ Σίμων βαρ Ἰωνᾶ, ὅτι σὰρξ καὶ αἷμα οὐκ ἀπεκάλυψέν σοι, ἀλλ’ ὁ πατήρ μου, ὁ ἐν τοῖς οὐρανοῖς.

And Jesus answered, he said to him, “Blessed are you Simon bar Jona, because flesh and blood has not revealed it to you, but my Father who is in Heavens.”

A Textual Commentary On Matthew 16:17

(a) In St Matthew, Simon Peter is called Bar-Jona (Matt. xvi. 17); i.e. son of Jona (or Jonan or Jonas). Accordingly in the received text of St John also he appears in not less than four passages (i. 42, xxi. 15-17) as Simon son of Jona (or Jonan or Jonas). But there can be no reasonable doubt that the correct reading in all these four passages is ‘Simon son of Joannes’ the Hebrew and Aramaic Johanan, the English John—and that later transcribers have altered it to make it accord with the form adopted by St Matthew. Here there is an apparent discrepancy, which however disappears on examination ; for we find that Jona or Jonan or Jonas is more than once used in the LXX version of the Old Testament as a contracted form of the name Johanan, Johannes, or John. Thus the statements of the two evangelists are reconciled ; and we owe it to the special knowledge derived from the Fourth Gospel that the full and correct form is preserved. (J. B. Lightfoot, Biblical Essays, pp. 18-19)
