And he says to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of people.” Bible

“Come after me.” This is a different word from “follow” in Matthew 4:20. The disciple would follow behind the teacher in the biblical culture.

“I will make you fishers of people.” For more on Jesus’ metaphor about being fishers for people, see commentary on Mark 1:17.
