  1. I never thought of the idea that he started with the command “Follow me” and ended with “Go and make disciples”. That was and His whole purpose. And we need to do it without fussing, which I have been guilty of.

  2. They were not strangers… they probably knew Jesus (the local carpenter and carpenter’s son) pretty well by this time. They may have already thought about possibly getting that invitation and what they would do if they got it. They didn’t necessarily know what would happen next, considering what DID happen next, however.

    Yes & No. John & Andrew were the Baptists disciples. They were the 2 that first followed Jesus .
    Joh 1:35 The next day again John was standing with two of his disciples,
    Joh 1:36 and he looked at Jesus as he walked by and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!”
    Joh 1:37 The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus.

    Andrew was the brother of Peter and John the brother of James. When Jesus went into the wilderness to be tempted, John and Andrew went home and spent 6 weeks talking about Jesus to their respective families. Jesus was from Nazareth not the same place as Peter and the Zebedees.

    • One thing we can easily forget is what the Bible does not say it does not say. Similarly we can forget to read carefully and miss what is actually said. Therefore, because they force us to reconsider and contemplate what we have read, these discussions are worthwhile.

      Thank you.
