A miracle and the calling of the first disciples. - Jesus encourages some fishermen to let down their nets again after a fruitless night of fishing. They catch so many fish their nets start to break and their fishing boats are filled! "Don't be afraid. Follow me, from now on you will be catching people, instead of fish."
