Jesus begins to preach the gospel, and to call men to follow him
1:14-15 – It was after John’s arrest that Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the Gospel of God, saying, “The time has come at last – the kingdom of God has arrived. You must change your hearts and minds and believe the good news.”
1:16-17 – As he walked along the shore of the Lake of Galilee, he saw two fishermen, Simon and his brother Andrew, casting their nets into the water. “Come and follow me, and I will teach you to catch men!” he cried.
1:18 – At once they dropped their nets, and followed him.
1:19-20 – Then he went a little further along the shore and saw James the son of Zebedee, aboard a boat with his brother John, overhauling their nets. At once he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men, and went off after him.
