Jesus recruits disciples who are fishermen on the Sea of Galilee. He shares his stories with listeners that convey a simple yet powerful message.

This clip could be used to discuss the relevance of storytelling and the role of disciples in Christianity. What was Jesus' purpose for telling different stories? What did he need the fishermen for? Children could then work in groups and re-tell Jesus' story. Encourage some volunteers to share their version with the class and, if possible, record them on video.The recordings could be watched as a follow-up activity, to describe what makes a good storyteller.
