Which came first: the calling of Peter and Andrew or the imprisonment of
John the Baptist?
The imprisonment of John the Baptist
Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee;
And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter,
and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. Matthew 4:12, 18-19
Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into
Galilee .... Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and
Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to
become fishers of men. Mark 1:14-17
Peter and Andrew were called
One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was
Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first findeth his own brother Simon,
and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being
interpreted, the Christ. And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus
beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be
called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.
things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there
he tarried with them, and baptized. And John also was baptizing in
Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they
came, and were baptized. For John was not yet cast into prison. John 1:40-42,
