Mark 1:16-18

16 Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. 17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. 18 And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him. (KJV)

16 Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee and saw Simon and Andrew casting a net into the sea and pulling out fish. ‘Ah, they must be fishers,’ Jesus miraculously deduced from no obvious clues at all. 17 Jesus walked over to them in the golden aura he imagined. Doves flying. Lasers. Mist. Hip-hop airhorns. He spread his arms in dramatic fashion and said, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men. 18 Simon and Andrew looked up from their hard day’s work and looked toward the shore. Simon asked, “Who’s this New Age hippie in his white robes and sandals?”

“More than that, what the hell does he mean by fishers of men?” Andrew inquired.

“I don’t know. Let’s go check it out.” And Simon and Andrew left their nets and followed him. Leading to a lucrative life of human trafficking. (BBI)
