Bringing Your Time to the Drama
Later on, after John was arrested by King Herod, Jesus went to Galilee to preach God’s Good News. “At last the time has come!” he announced. “God’s Kingdom is near! Turn from your sins and act on this glorious news!” One day as Jesus was walking along the shores of the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew fishing with nets, for they were commercial fishermen. Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me! And I will make you fish for people!” At once they left their nets and went along with him. A little farther up the beach, he saw Zebedee’s sons, James and John, in a boat mending their nets. He called them too, and immediately they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and went with him.
