    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:22

    Y ellos, dejando luego el barco y a su padre, le siguieron.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 4:22

    Verse 22. Left the
    ship and their father] By the ship, to ploion, we are to understand the mere fishing-boat, used for extending their nets in the water and bringing the hawser or rope of the farther end to shore, by which the net was pulled to land. But why should these be called to leave their employment and their father, probably now aged? To this I answer, that to be obedient to, provide for, and comfort our parents, is the highest duty we owe or can discharge, except that to God. But, when God calls to the work of the ministry, father and mother and all must be left. Were we necessary to their comfort and support before? Then God, if he call us into another work or state, will take care to supply to them our lack of service some other way; and, if this be not done, it is a proof we have mistaken our call. Again, were our parents necessary to us, and in leaving them for the sake of the Gospel, or in obedience to a Divine command, do we deprive ourselves of the comforts of life? No matter: we should prefer the honour of serving the Most High, even in poverty and humility, to all the comforts of a father's house. But what an honour was the vocation of James and John, to old Zebedee their father! His sons are called to be heralds of the God of heaven! Allowing him to have been a pious man, this must have given him unutterable delight.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 22. And they immediately left the
    ship , etc.] More is expressed here than before, for they not only left their nets, but their ship too; which was of much more value; nay, even their father also, with the hired servants, ( Mark 1:20) and so complied with the call of Christ to his people, ( Psalm 45:10) and thereby proved, that they were sincerely his followers, ( Luke 14:26) and might expect the gracious promise of Christ to be made good unto them, ( Matthew 19:28,29).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 18-22 - When
    Christ began to preach, he began to gather disciples, who shoul be hearers, and afterwards preachers of his doctrine, who should be witnesses of his miracles, and afterwards testify concerning them. He went not to Herod's court, not to Jerusalem, among the chief priest and the elders, but to the sea of Galilee, among the fishermen. The same power which called Peter and Andrew, could have wrought upon Anna and Caiaphas, for with God nothing is impossible. But Christ choose the foolish things of the world to confound the wise. Diligence in a honest calling is pleasing to Christ, and it is no hinderance to a holy life. Idle people are more open to the temptations of Satan than to the calls of God. It is a happy and hopeful thing to see children carefu of their parents, and dutiful. When Christ comes, it is good to be found doing. Am I in Christ? is a very needful question to as ourselves; and, next to that, Am I in my calling? They had followe Christ before, as common disciples, Joh 1:37; now they must leave their calling. Those who would follow Christ aright, must, at his command leave all things to follow him, must be ready to part with them. Thi instance of the power of the Lord Jesus encourages us to depend upo his grace. He speaks, and it is done.
