These two men were fishermen, and they were throwing a net into the lake to catch fish. 17 Jesus said to them, “Come, follow me, and I will make you a different kind of fishermen. You will bring in people, not fish, becoming fishers of men.” 18 So they immediately left their nets and followed Jesus
