Hidden fishermen

Amazing how there are always more treasures in the Bible.

I thought Jesus said, “Come follow me and I will make you fishers of men,” only because Peter and John had been fishermen.

But as only a master author might do, God had hidden a foreshadowing of even that detail way back in Jeremiah’s writing. “Behold,” he wrote of the people of God scattered throughout the nations, “I am sending for many fishers, declares the Lord, and they shall catch them.”

Six hundred years before Peter and John were born to a fishing family, God thought of them and gave Jeremiah that idea.

It’s amazing. Almost like the Bible was written by One Person!
