and a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love, and I am very pleased with you."
Then the Spirit sent Jesus into the desert.
He was in the desert forty days and was tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and the angels came and took care of him.
After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, preaching the Good News from God.
He said, "The right time has come. The kingdom of God is near. Change your hearts and lives and believe the Good News!"
When Jesus was walking by Lake Galilee, he saw Simonn and his brother Andrew throwing a net into the lake because they were fishermen.
Jesus said to them, "Come follow me, and I will make you fish for people."
So Simon and Andrew immediately left their nets and followed him.
Going a little farther, Jesus saw two more brothers, James and John, the sons of Zebedee. They were in a boat, mending their nets.
Jesus immediately called them, and they left their father in the boat with the hired workers and followed Jesus.
Jesus and his followers went to Capernaum. On the Sabbath day He went to the synagogue and began to teach.
