And immediately they left their nets and followed him. Bible other translations

“and immediately they left their nets.” Reading this verse without its full context in the Gospels and culture of the time makes the calling of the Apostle seem magical on Jesus’ part and rash and unwise on the Apostles part. These future apostles were already disciples. [For more information, see commentary on Matthew 4:20].
