Give Mathew's account of the call of the first four disciples of Jesus

Jesus walked by the sea of Galilee. He saw Simon Peter and Andrew
his brother, fishing They were fishermen. Jesus told them to follow Him. He
added that He would make them fishers of men. They left their tools and
followed him at once. From there, He saw two other brothers – James and John
the sons of Zebedee. They were in the boat with their father mending their
nets. Jesus asked them to follow Him and they responded immediately. Leaving
their father and the boat behind, they followed him.

Reasons why Christ needed disciples

  1.  Jesus needed
    disciples to continue his work after his ascension, 
  2. He needed them to
    firmly plant the seed of Christianity, 
  3. He needed them as witnesses to the word
