  10. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Luke 5:1–11 – The calling of the first disciples

  11. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Luke 5:1–11 – The calling of the first disciples • The fishermen leave everything to follow Jesus as his first disciples.

  12. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • 1 One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, with the people crowding round him and listening to the word of God,

  13. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • 1 One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, with the people crowding round him and listening to the word of God, • Lake of Gennesaret is the Sea of Galilee and was later named Lake Tiberius after the Roman emperor.

  14. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Crowding around him suggests physical contact. The Jewish leaders and teachers would never allow themselves to be in a similar situation with common people but Jesus frequently does and indeed relishes being among the people. This was another factor why the Jewish social elite would not take note of who was among them.

  15. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • 2 he saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. 3 He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat.

  16. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • He got into one of the boats, he sat down and taught. • Again Jesus began to teach by the lake. The crowd that gathered around him was so large that he got into a boat and sat in it out on the lake, while all the people were along the shore at the water’s edge. He taught them many things by parables (Mark 4:1-2a).

  17. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • 4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch. 5 Simon answered, Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.

  18. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Let down the nets, Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. • Peter is not showing disrespect as he calls Jesus ‘Master’, and concludes: • But because you say so, I will let down the nets.

  19. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • 6 When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. 7 So they signalled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.

  20. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • The large number of fish is dramatised by their nets began to break and their signalling to their partners; to come and help them.

  21. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • That both boats began to sink further emphasises the great catch of fish.

  22. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • That both boats began to sink further emphasises the great catch of fish. • Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book (John 20:30).

  23. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • 8 When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man! 9 For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken,

  24. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Simon’s reaction: • In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. (Continued).

  25. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • And they were calling to one another: ‘Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory’. At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke. “Woe to me!” I cried. ‘I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty’. (Continued).

  26. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for”. Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” (Isaiah 6:1–8).

  27. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. When I saw it, I fell facedown, and I heard the voice of one speaking (Ezekiel 1:28).

  28. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • He fell down at Jesus’ knees in the midst of the fish asking the Lord to go away from him lest he be judged as a sinful man.

  29. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Peter was astonished by the miracle as a demonstration of the presence of God.

  30. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Peter was astonished by the miracle as a demonstration of the presence of God. • “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Peter answered, “You are the Christ” (Mark 8:29).

  31. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • 10 and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon’s partners. Then Jesus said to Simon, Don’t be afraid; from now on you will catch men.

  32. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Don’t be afraid, or ‘Fear not’ as in some translations, is something we first encountered in Luke 1:13. It is a natural reaction for most humans when they encounter the supernatural, but God and his angels always try to allay that fear.

  33. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Catch men builds on the analogy of catching fish. It means bringing people into the kingdom of God and into relationship with Jesus.

  34. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • 11 So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.

  35. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Luke 5:12–16 – The man with leprosy

  36. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Luke 5:12–16 – The man with leprosy • Luke may have placed this account here due to the similarity between the events described in v.8 and v.12. This is almost certainly the same account given in Matthew Chapter 8 and Mark Chapter 1.

  37. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • 12 While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.

  38. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Covered with leprosy, reminds us of how we are in our sin before we are miraculously healed and set free.

  39. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Leprosy (lepra) was not limited to what is today called leprosy or Hansen’s disease.

  40. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Fell with his face to the ground. A position of reverence and we will see this response again from another leper in Luke 17:16, where it says: • He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him — and he was a Samaritan.

  41. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • If you are willing, you can make me clean: • The miracle reveals Jesus’ authority to cure the ritual uncleanness of the leper.

  42. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • 13 Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. I am willing, he said. Be clean! And immediately the leprosy left him.

  43. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Be clean! • It is only a single word in Greek katharisthēti; and is required to effect the miracle. Jesus is not made unclean by touching the leper. Instead, the leper is cleansed by Jesus’ touch.

  44. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • 14 Then Jesus ordered him, Don’t tell anyone, but go, show yourself to the priest and offer the sacrifices that Moses commanded for your cleansing, as a testimony to them.

  45. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Don’t tell anyone. • Jesus carefully avoids stirring up a misunderstanding of his messianic identity.

  46. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • Go, show yourself to the priest as Moses commanded. • When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests”. And as they went, they were cleansed (Luke 17:14). • This was to serve as a testimony to them, i.e. the people, and probably the priests as well.

  47. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • As a result of Jesus’ healing, the former leper is brought back into full participation and fellowship in the Jewish community according to the provisions of the Mosaic Law.

  48. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • 15 Yet the news about him spread all the more, so that crowds of people came to hear him and to be healed of their sicknesses.

  49. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • All the more: • And the news about him spread throughout the surrounding area (Luke 4:37).

  50. The Ministry of Jesus in Galilee • To hear him and to be healed: • He went down with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of his disciples was there and a great number of people from all over Judæa, from Jerusalem, and from the coastal region around Tyre and Sidon, who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by impure spirits were cured (Luke 6:18).
