Matthew 4:12-20: Now when Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew to Galilee. He left Nazareth and made his home in Capernum by the sea….As he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him.
