Luke 5:1–11

Luke’s telling of the call of the disciples focuses on Simon Peter. Jesus tells Peter to cast his net for a catch even though Peter has fished all night without catching a single fish. He does what Jesus suggests and has a tremendous catch. The great catch of fish reminds Peter of his own human weakness and sinfulness. It also is the opportunity for Jesus to call Peter to a new vocation—catching people!

Lucas 5, 1–11

El relato de Lucas sobre el llamado a los discípulos se enfoca en Pedro. Jesús le dice a Pedro que lance sus redes para pescar aun cuando Pedro se ha pasado la noche pescando sin sacar nada. Él hace lo que le sugiere Jesús y pesca una gran cantidad de peces. La gran pesca le recuerda a Pedro su propia debilidad humana y sus pecados. También es la oportunidad para que Jesús llamara a Pedro a una nueva vocación: ¡pescador de hombres!
