The Parable of the Net



















Matt 13:47-52


47. "Once again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was let down into the lake and caught all kinds of fish.

48. When it was full, the fishermen pulled it up on the shore. Then they sat down and collected the good fish in baskets, but threw the bad away.

49. This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous

50. and throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

51."Have you understood all these things?" Jesus asked. "Yes," they replied.

52. He said to them, "Therefore every teacher of the law who has been instructed about the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old."

The Calling of the First Disciples

14After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. 15"The time has come," he said. "The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!"
16As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 17"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." 18At once they left their nets and followed him.

19When he had gone a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John in a boat, preparing their nets. 20Without delay he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him.
