Now as Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. And He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.
–Matthew 4:18-20, NAS
It was a familiar scene: Fishermen out on the sea, working hard. Laughter as they bring in the nets, straining with the catch. Birds wheeling in close, trying to sneak an easy meal.
And then came the Rabbi, calling the brothers to be His disciples.
