Matthew 4:12-25

A. [Jesus comes to Galilee] 12Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee; 13And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim: 14That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, 15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles; 16The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.

B.(17) From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

C.(18) And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee,

D.1. saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother,

2. casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

3.(19) And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

4.(20) And they straightway left their nets, and followed him

D’.1′. (21) And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father,

2′. mending their nets;

3′. and he called them.  

4′. (22) And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.

C’.(23) And Jesus went about all Galilee,

B’. teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

A’. [Jesus fame spreads beyond Galilee throughout the whole region] 24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them. 25 And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.
