The Beautiful Beatitudes, Part 1

The first four men that Jesus called were fishermen. Peter and Andrew were brothers and they were the first called. And very soon after he called them to follow Him, He called two more brothers, James and John, also fishermen. Jesus had a very simple message as He began His ministry -- Repent; for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. He went about healing every sort of sickness and disease and news of him spread all around, and great multitudes began to follow him, not just from Galilee but from all regions of the land of Palestine.
