One thought on “Fishing for Parallels”
Jesus saying he will make the fishermen fishers of men is probably not true because there are passages in the New Testament (or used to be) where Jesus asks his friends to keep secret what he is doing. The stories of them going about the countryside to spread his religion and mission should be viewed as Christian propaganda.
