I'm sorry but that's what my mind jumps to. But do not question the logic of me. It is the sad truth that I am insane.

Bible students recognize the truth that the "rock" reference in Matthew 16:18 is a reference to Christ not to Peter. Study the two different Greek words used there. The New Testament Christian Church is built on Christ and his gospel, death, burial, and resurrection.

Messiah is the rock, and Kefa as well, as by his testimony, that Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of the Living God, and Messiah, was first spoken.

So yes, Kefa is a type of rock, or else Christ would not have named him such, recorded for us in both Aramaic, and Greek.

As we are saved first by trusting in Christ, and then by following Him, through Kefa came not only a confession of faith, but later, written confirmation that Paul's letters are Scripture, surely as the Law, Prophets, and Psalms.

Cephas is a form of Kephas, which is a Greek transliteration of the Aramaic word 'Kepha' (כיפא), meaning rock, stone.
