Bible: Mark 1:13-20
Preaching in Galilee and the Call of the Disciples
1:14 Now after John was imprisoned, 4 Jesus went into Galilee and proclaimed the gospel 5 of God. 6 1:15 He 7 said, “The time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God 8 is near. Repent and believe the gospel!” 1:16 As he went along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew, Simon’s brother, casting a net into the sea (for they were fishermen). 9 1:17 Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will turn you into fishers of people.” 10 1:18 They left their nets immediately and followed him. 11 1:19 Going on a little farther, he saw James, the son of Zebedee, and John his brother in their 12 boat mending nets. 1:20 Immediately he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him.
