Scripture

 

Mark 1:14-20 (NRSV)


14 Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God,

15 and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.’

16 As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake -- for they were fishermen.

17 And Jesus said to them, ‘Follow me and I will make you fish for people.’

18 And immediately they left their nets and followed him.

19 As he went a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in their boat mending the nets.

20 Immediately he called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men, and followed him.
