Description:
CATHOLIC PRODUCTIONS: DR. BRANT PITRE: JESUS CALLS SIMON PETER ON THE SHORES OF THE SEA Jesus Calls Simon Peter on the Shores of the Sea In this video, a excerpt from the Mass Readings Explained, Dr. Brant Pitre discusses Jesus' call of Simon Peter to follow Jesus. This scene takes place right after Peter has spent all night fishing and has caught nothing. Ironically, Jesus, who was a builder by trade, is telling a professional fisherman how to fish. Following Jesus' request was an act of Faith by Peter. Moreover, this provides the context for why Peter, Andrew, and John ended up following Jesus that the other synoptics may not make clear. This was a miraculous act and gave credence to believing Jesus and following his call. Notable quote: So you can imagine, Peter’s probably tired (on a human level), and he’s frustrated from not having caught any fish and this carpenter comes along and says, “Well, hey, did you try the deep water? Go out into the deep water and try and put your nets down and see what happens.” So this is a test. Is Peter going to do the human thing which would be, “I know what I’m doing, thank you very much. We failed. Nothing, caught nothing all night. I’m not about to just go out into the water again and let down a net.” ...And yet, what does Peter say? “At your word, I will let down the nets.” Learn more about the Mass Readings Explained here: https://catholicproductions.com/pages...
