Matthew Bible Background

01.04.2018 – New Testament: Matt 4.21–22

To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 4 on January 4, In the year of our Lord 2018

By Don Ruhl

Jesus had been teaching and preaching, and James and John heard Him. They thought on what He said. Therefore, when He approached them about following, watch what they did,

Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. He called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed Him (Matthew 4.21–22). 

Once you know who Jesus is, do not resist Him. Follow Him with the entirety of your being. Recognize Him as the Lord and learn from Him as the Teacher.


  • To what degree do you follow Jesus?
  • If you have delayed following Him, what could possibly be so important that you would put off the Lord of heaven and earth?
