Behold the Lamb of God
Calling the Fishermen

people; that they, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works,
may of thee be plenteously rewarded; through Jesus Christ our
Jeremiah 23. 5
BEHOLD, the days come, saith the Lord, that I
unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and
shall execute judgement and justice in the earth. In his days
shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name
he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. Therefore,
the days come, saith the Lord, that they shall no more say, The Lord
which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; but,
The Lord liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house
Israel out of the north-country, and from all countries whither I had
them; and they shall dwell in their own land.
The 1662 BCP has the following Gospel:
St. John 6. 5.
When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a
come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that
may eat? (And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what
he would do.) Philip answered him, Two hundred shillings' worth of bread
is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.
One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him,
there is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small
fishes; but what are they among so many? And Jesus said, Make the
men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the
men sat down, in number about five thousand. And Jesus took the
loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples,
and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes
as much as they would. When they were filled, he said unto his
disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with
the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above
unto them that had eaten. Then those men, when they had seen the
miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that Prophet that
should come into the world.

tenth hour. One of the two which heard John speak, and followed
was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first findeth his own
Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messiah (which is, being
