James Garfield Smalls, "Fishaman Peter" (on USSeaIsland03)
cf. "We Are Almost Down to the Shore" ("Peter on the sea" theme) and notes there
cf. "Who Did Swallow Jonah?" ("Peter on the sea" theme)
NOTES: In Mark 1:16-17 Jesus sees Peter and his brother Andrew fishing on the Sea of Galilee and calls them to come "fish for people"; similarly in Matthew 4:17-20. The account in Luke 5:1-10 is rather different, and involves James and John the sons of Zebedee as well, but the effect is the same. - RBW
