And Jesus said to them, "Follow Me, and
I will make you become fishers of men."
 Immediately they left their nets
and followed Him.
 Going on a little farther, He saw
[a]James the son of Zebedee, and John
his brother, who were also in the boat
mending the nets.
 Immediately He called them; and they
left their father Zebedee in the boat with the
hired servants, and went away to follow Him.
 They *went into Capernaum; and
immediately on the Sabbath He entered
the synagogue and began to teach.
 They were amazed at His teaching;
for He was teaching them as one having
authority, and not as the scribes.
 Just then there was a man in their
synagogue with an unclean spirit;
and he cried out,
 saying, "What [c]business do we have
with each other, Jesus [d]of Nazareth?
Have You come to destroy us?
I know who You are"the Holy One of God!"
 And Jesus rebuked him, saying,
"Be quiet, and come out of him!"
 Throwing him into convulsions, the
unclean spirit cried out with a
loud voice and came out of him.
 They were all amazed, so that they
debated among themselves, saying,
"What is this? A new teaching with authority!
He commands even the unclean spirits,
and they obey Him."
 Immediately the news about Him spread
everywhere into all the surrounding
district of Galilee.
May He bless you richly, as you continue to
live for Him and share His love!
