The other being John.

Andrew

See on Mark 3:18. Compare Mark 13:3; John 6:8; John 12:22.

Simon Peter's brother

The mention of Simon Peter before he has appeared in the narrative indicates the importance which the Evangelist attaches to him. It seems to assume a knowledge of the evangelic narrative on the part of the readers. See a similar instance of anticipating what is subsequently explained, in the mention of Mary, John 11:2.
