Jesus Calls the First Disciples

35The next day again John was standing with two of his disciples, 36and he looked at Jesus as he walked by and said, “Behold, (A)the Lamb of God!” 37The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. 38Jesus turned and saw them following and said to them, (B)“What are you seeking?” And they said to him, (C)“Rabbi” (which means Teacher), “where are you staying?” 39He said to them, “Come and you will see.” So they came and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day, for it was about the tenth hour.[a] 40(D)One of the two who heard John speak and followed Jesus[b] was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. 41He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, “We have found (E)the Messiah” (which means Christ). 42He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon the son of (F)John. You shall be called (G)Cephas” (which means (H)Peter[c]).

Jesus Calls the First Disciples

5On one occasion, while the crowd was pressing in on him to hear the word of God, he was standing by (A)the lake of Gennesaret, 2(B)and he saw two boats by the lake, but the fishermen had gone out of them and were (C)washing their nets. 3Getting into one of the boats, which was Simon's, he asked him to put out a little from the land. And (D)he sat down and taught the people from the boat. 4And when he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, (E)“Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” 5And Simon answered, “Master, (F)we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets.” 6And when they had done this, (G)they enclosed a large number of fish, and (H)their nets were breaking. 7They signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. (I)And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. 8But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, (J)“Depart from me, for (K)I am a sinful man, O Lord.” 9For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish that they had taken, 10and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.”[a] 11And when they had brought their boats to land, (L)they left everything and followed him.
