Jesus tells Peter to put the nets into deep water and start fishing again. Peter responds that this endeavor would be useless, but Peter relents and does what Jesus asks. They end up catching a huge number of fish. Jesus’ request and the catch of fish leads Peter to recognize Jesus as Lord along with the other disciples. Jesus then gets to the heart of the matter. He tells them they will become fishers of people. The response of the disciples is to leave everything and follow Jesus. The disciples will leave behind their livelihood and begin a new journey. They will trade their fishing nets for the Good News of God’s kingdom.
