Approach: Was Jesus a stranger to Andrew and Simon when He invited them to be His disciples? Would you follow a stranger? Encourage the student to ask questions so that they can discern how the Bible can help them in life.

Hermeneutic objective: Literary context requires the study of various sources beyond the immediate.

Theological objective: Andrew heard John the Baptist identify Jesus as the Messiah Son of God, and he told his brother Simon. Both were Old Testament Believers, and they became Jesus' first disciples when they were invited by Him.
