The Elementary Teachings about Christ 6: They should have mastered this already. It's time to leave8 the basics9 and move on. Of course, what he considers the basics sometimes interest us:
Written by John W. Schoenheit The Gospels contain records of Jesus calling his disciples that can be very confusing. It is also important to have some knowledge of the first-century culture, especially the rabbinic practices. The four Gospel records we will compare are: This behavior of Peter, Andrew, James, and John just dropping their fishing gear and immediately following Jesus seems abrupt, possibly even reckless.
If we start reading at Matthew 1: The key to understanding Matthew and Mark and Luke is to read it in the context of all four Gospels and pay close attention to the details. In fact, not only did they know him well, they were already his disciples when he called them from their boats.
Actually, as this study develops, we will see that he called them from their boats on two different occasions. Andrew and Peter were brothers, and were deeply spiritual men, something that is obvious from reading John 1. Andrew was a disciple of John the Baptist before he ever met Jesus John 1: That speaks volumes about Andrew.
Of course there would have been many things John taught about the spiritual situation of the times, and so Andrew would have seen through the religiosity and corruption of the spiritually bankrupt Pharisees and Sadducees.
Furthermore, John would have taught his disciples much more about the truth and error of the religious system of his time. The Four Gospels do not say much about the teaching of John, which is understandable since the Gospels are about Jesus, not John.
One of the great truths that John would have taught his disciples was that he was the forerunner of the Messiah who was to come shortly.
However, because the roads deteriorated quickly, there was no need to repair them until just before the arrival of the dignitary. The fact that John declared that he was the voice who shouted to repair the road of the Lord meant the Lord would come on the scene shortly after he did.
Of course John did not tell people to fix the roads Jesus traveled on, rather, John told people to fix themselves and the culture so they were ready for the arrival of the Lord.

For example, Abram to Abraham Gen. That Peter would accept what Andrew said and also immediately accept the new name Jesus gave him shows us that Peter was a deeply spiritual man too, and immediately willing to become a disciple of Jesus.
The next day Philip and Nathanial began to follow Jesus, along with Andrew and Peter, and this was before John was arrested and before Jesus started ministering in Galilee John 1: Jesus called the disciples from their boats after John was arrested, so they had already been following Jesus for some time Matt.
The record shows us that Peter, Andrew, Philip, and Nathanial were following Jesus, and we can also assume that since James and John were business partners with Peter and Andrew, and also deeply spiritual men, they believed what Peter and Andrew said about Jesus.
But if Peter and Andrew were following Jesus before John was arrested, why were they fishing when Jesus called them? In the biblical culture a person could be a disciple or follower of a rabbi without giving up his occupation.
Although some men were full-time disciples, discipleship often did not require that. For example, Andrew was a disciple of John John 1: Chronologically then, Peter, Andrew, Philip, and Nathanial first became aware that Jesus was the Messiah and became his disciples while they were in Bethany beyond Jordan where John was baptizing, and yet they still worked for a living.
This was before Jesus lived in Galilee. Then, after Jesus moved to Capernaum Matt. Even after this calling to more intense discipleship, however, they still continued to fish for a living.Save 33% on Sower with the Setting Sun by Vincent Van Gogh.
