Story

trolling gear

The Old Testament is full of stories about farming reaping and sowing, lots of red meat and carbs.

Jesus starts the New Testament off by going fishing and saying " I will make you fishers of men."

Joseph was a carpenter but Jesus was a fisherman. We don't know much about the book shelves Jesus made in shop class. We do know he caught fish.

Yes I am a big fan of Jesus but this is about fishing and fishermen... "out on the ocean, all men are brothers." We look out for each other whatever it takes.

Lyrics

               Jesus was a Fisherman    salmon trolling gear

    Joseph was a carpenter, but Jesus was a fisherman,
    the first of his disciples too, no accident at all
    Out on the ocean, all men are brothers.
    Jesus was a fisherman, no accident at all.
 

He said "launch out into the deep … put down your nets"

And they said, “we’ve been fishing all day long and we aint caught nothing yet.”

But when the seine was pursed up, and brailing was complete

They plugged every fishboat on the Sea of Gallilee.

 

When it was time to feed the multitudes that listened to him speak

Jesus knew just what to do, it was no accident at all.

Yes he knew just what to do when there were thousands to be fed,

He multiplied the humpies and the pilot bread.

 

Now when some folks talk of heaven, they point up to the sky,

But the ocean is the closest thing you’ll see until you die.

No beginning and no end, She always will provide

Unforgiving of greed and pride.

 

It was no accident that Jesus was a fisherman,

the first of his disciples too, no accident at all

Out on the ocean, all men are brothers.

Jesus was a fisherman, no accident at all.
