Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news a of God, b15
and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; c repent, and believe in the good news." d16
As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen.
And Jesus said to them, "Follow me and I will make you fish for people."
And immediately they left their nets and followed him.
As he went a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in their boat mending the nets.
Immediately he called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men, and followed him.
