Simon Peter Fisherman (1948) A faithful dramatization ofthe calling of the first disciples and the influence ofJesus on the life of Simon Peter, as well as Peter's wifeConcordia. Initially, Simon the fisherman is uncertain howto respond when Jesus invites Simon and Andrew to 'Followme, and I will make you fishers of men.' In one poignantscene, Peter stands on a rock overlooking the sea as we hearhim pondering in his mind: 'I was unable to forget the soundof His voice, a nd the look in His eyes, and the fact thatHe had changed my name. Why should I be called Peter, the'rock,' unless He had a reason for it. And, if He were theMessiah, why should He be interested in me, a fisherman?'When Peter's wife Concordia hears Jesus preach in theSynagogue, she comes close to believing that he could be theMessiah. After Jesus heals Concordia's mother, she comes tounderstand why Peter must follow Jesus. Cathedral Filmsfounder James K.
