THE MISSION OF THE TWELVE  /  THE CALL OF SIMON THE FISHERMAN       
SERMON ON THE PLAIN
LUKE 6:12-16   /  5:1-11 /  6:20-26





Luke
Chapter 5

1
1 While the crowd was pressing in on Jesus and listening to the word of God, he was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret.
2
He saw two boats there alongside the lake; the fishermen had disembarked and were washing their nets.
3
Getting into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, he asked him to put out a short distance from the shore. Then he sat down and taught the crowds from the boat.
4
After he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into deep water and lower your nets for a catch."
5
Simon said in reply, "Master, we have worked hard all night and have caught nothing, but at your command I will lower the nets."
6
When they had done this, they caught a great number of fish and their nets were tearing.
7
They signaled to their partners in the other boat to come to help them. They came and filled both boats so that they were in danger of sinking.
8
When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at the knees of Jesus and said, "Depart from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man."
9
For astonishment at the catch of fish they had made seized him and all those with him,
10
and likewise James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners of Simon. Jesus said to Simon, "Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men."
11
When they brought their boats to the shore, they left everything 2 and followed him.  
Luke  
Chapter 6



12
3 In those days he departed to the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer 4 to God.
13
When day came, he called his disciples to himself, and from them he chose Twelve, 5 whom he also named apostles:
14
Simon, whom he named Peter, 6 and his brother Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew,
15
Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called a Zealot, 7
16
and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, 8 who became a traitor.





Luke
Chapter 6



20
10 11 And raising his eyes toward his disciples he said: "Blessed are you who are poor, for the kingdom of God is yours.
21
Blessed are you who are now hungry, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who are now weeping, for you will laugh.
22
Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude and insult you, and denounce your name as evil on account of the Son of Man.
23
Rejoice and leap for joy on that day! Behold, your reward will be great in heaven. For their ancestors treated the prophets in the same way.
24
But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation.
25
But woe to you who are filled now, for you will be hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you will grieve and weep.
26
Woe to you when all speak well of you, for their ancestors treated the false prophets in this way.
