“As to the book called the bible, it is blasphemy to call it the Word of God. It is a book of lies and contradictions and a history of bad times and bad men.” -Thomas Paine
Read John 1:35-42, Mark 1:16-20, & Luke 5:1-11 • Summarize how Jesus met his first disciples • Discuss how these passages appear to contradict one another • Do some investigation in and around these passages to see if you can find some clues that might explain why these passages are not contradictory.
The following day John was again standing with two of his disciples. As Jesus walked by, John looked at him and declared, “Look! There is the Lamb of God!” When John’s two disciples heard this, they followed Jesus. John 1:35-37, NLT
John 1:35-42 Call #1: To salvation
Mark 1:16-20 Call #2: To mission
Luke 5:1-11 Call #3: To mission (again)
Discuss Where are you at in all of this? The 1st call? 2nd? 3rd? What are you going to do to move forward in your following of Jesus?
