Fishers of Men Free Printable Coloring and Learning Packet Post Preview: Children will enjoy coloring pictures about Jesus and the Fishers of Men Gospel story. There are also words to color and trace throughout.
Note: The packet is available toward the end of the post.
One of the things that I loved when the kids were younger and we were still homeschooling were the times when we would read stories about Jesus and His life. I was thinking back on those times while preparing to put up this post today about the newest printable packet on the site.
In the Gospel According to Matthew (chapter four) and the Gospel According to March (chapter one), we hear the story of Jesus calling out to his first disciples. They were fishermen, but He tells them that He will make them fishers of men if they follow Him.
To go along with that story, I have a learning packet of Fishers of Men Free Printables for you!
Note: This new packet is a great companion learning packet to The Zaccheus Story: Free Zaccheus Printables Packet for Elementary Students or if you are working on Bible Songs with your kids.

Fishers of Men Free Printables: Coloring Pages and Learning Packet
He said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.” At once they left their nets and followed Him. – Matthew 4:19-20
The Fishers of Men story is short, but it is powerful for so many reasons. In addition to the learning packet, this story offers up some great discussion possibilities, even with young children.
While they are coloring, you might talk about things like:
- What did Jesus mean when he said he would make them fishers of men?
- How do you think Peter, Andrew, James, and John felt? Do you think they were scared? Excited?
- Do you think it was hard for James and John to leave their father?
- How does this story make you feel?
Another extension activity: You can listen to the song I Will Make You Fishers of Men.
