Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee. He saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and Andrew his brother. They were casting a net into the sea, because they were fishermen.
As the people pressed on him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake. He saw two ships standing on the shore of the lake. The fishermen were not in the ships. They were on the shore washing their nets.
Jesus entered one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and asked that Simon thrust the ship out a little from the land.
Jesus sat down and taught the people from the ship.
When he had finished teaching,
Jesus (to Simon): Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.
Simon: Master, we have labored all the night and have caught nothing. Nevertheless, at your word, I will let down the net.
When they had done this, they caught a great crowd of fish, and their net broke.
They beckoned to their partners, who were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came and filled both the ships. Both ships were so full of fish that they began to sink.
When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees.
Simon Peter: Leave me, because I am a sinful man, O Lord.
He and all that were with him were astonished at the catch of the fish which they had taken. And so were James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon.
Jesus: Don’t be afraid. Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
When they had brought their ships to land, they left it all and followed Jesus.
Going on from there, Jesus saw the two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee and John his brother (Simon Peter’s partners). They were in a ship with Zebedee their father, repairing their nets.
Jesus called them.
They immediately left the ship and their father (Zebedee was in the ship with the hired servants) and followed Jesus.
