This summer I’ve been reading the gospel of Luke. Recently, I came upon this passage, in Luke Chapter 5. I thought I’d show you the actual text, first, and then, try to put it into more 21st century vernacular.
1 One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, the people were crowding around him and listening to the word of God.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.
