After returning to His home town, the Lord Jesus Christ went to Capernaum and started off His preaching mission. The fishermen from Galilee, Simon and Andrew, James and John, became the first apostles of Jesus. They were designed to become hunters of human beings. Speaking on the election of the apostles, Luke the Evangelist presents a marvelous miracle that happened to Apostle Peter. By Jesus Christ's word, Peter and his fellow fishermen threw their nets into the sea. And while they were sure they would catch nothing, the contrary happened: the nets were filled with abundant fish. This sign was given to the apostles right before the start of their apostolic mission and showed that the Church of Christ, through the efforts of the apostles, was to be filled with many believers from different nations.
