Re: Cephas

One other note re: the Fitzmyer ref. to a "bar kf'" at Elephantine.  
"Kf'" may or may not have ben "Kephas" ("rock"), for as shown by the 
Caiaphas tomb inscription, "Caiaphas" was written in Aram. both as "Kf'" 
and as Kyf'".  So, the consoants "kf'" might have been something other 
than "kephas" (stone).  As is true often, here one must frame the 
question properly to consider all relevant possibilities.
