Bible Study (Online): Gospel of Mark ~ Study Five

Getting to Know Jesus in the Gospel of Mark
Study Five: Mark 1:16-20

16 Passing alongside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. 17 And Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” 18 And immediately they left their nets and followed him. 19 And going on a little farther, he saw James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, who were in their boat mending the nets. 20 And immediately he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants and followed him. (Mark 1)

1.  What change was Jesus going to bring to the lives of these fishermen? 


2. What was the fishermen’s part in experiencing this change? 


3.  What was Jesus’ part in this transformation? 


4.  What was Jesus telling the men about his relationship to their careers and families?  


5. What would it look like in our day if Jesus had the same relationship to your career (schooling, activities, etc) and family? 


6.  What have you learned about Jesus in Mark’s gospel account (Mark 1:1-15) that would indicate why Jesus has the right to make such changes to our lives?  


7. How are you relating to Jesus in this aspect of who he is?
