81. “Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates The Claims Of The Gospels” By J. Warner Wallace

81. “. . . The Calling of the Disciples: As someone familiar with the Bible, the calling of Peter, Andrew, James, and John seemed odd to me when I first read it in the Gospel of Matthew. Now as Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers: Simon (who was called Peter) and Andrew, his brother, casting a net into the Sea and said, ‘Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.’ Immediately they left their nets and followed Him. Going on from there, He saw two other brothers: James the son of Zebedee and John, his brother, in the boat with Zebedee, the father, mending their nets. He called them. Immediately they left their boat and father and followed Him – Matthew 4:18-22. That’s it! Jesus said follow Me and they dropped everything immediately? Who would do that? How did they know who Jesus was? Or if anything about Him was worthy of that kind of dedication? . . .” ~ J. Warner Wallace
