After John was arrested, Jesus went to Galilee, preaching the good news of God:
"The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe in the good news!"
As He was passing along by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew, Simon's brother. They were casting a net into the sea, since they were fishermen.
"Follow Me," Jesus told them, "and I will make you fish for people!"
Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.
Going on a little farther, He saw James the son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in their boat mending their nets.
Immediately He called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed Him.
