The winning entry of Brandon B's Biblical 6x6 contest, this vignette depicts the scene described in the Gospel of Luke, chapter five, verses 4b-11.
About this creation
Here is the whole passage:

He [Jesus] said to Simon, “Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” And Simon answered, “Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets.” And when they had done this, they enclosed a large number of fish, and their nets were breaking. They signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord.” For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish that they had taken, and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.” And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed him.


Jesus and Peter in the boat. I know there were supposed to be more fishermen in the boat, but I could only fit two minifigs.


Here is the net holding numerous fish. A big thanks to Ian Spacek for lending me the net, and Grace Pointner for letting me borrow some of her fish. Building this, all I could think of was the fish in Finding Nemo murmuring, "Keep swimming down! Keep swimming down!"


An uninterested sand green fish floats above a sandy bottom of the lake of Gennesaret. I couldn't resist putting the series 6 centurion helmet at the bottom. Including the bubbles was probably my favorite part of the building process.


Here is Simon Peter alongside his fishing boat.


Jesus and Peter.

Some of Jesus most profound words, in my opinion, were those spoken to the early disciples after this incident: You will become fishers of men. That is truly the quintessential phrase of evangelism, for, in reaching out to a sinful world, we must find ways to bear Christ's image in a way that outsiders will be attracted to He who redeems us.

Another good entry for this awsome contest! I like everything on the creation, especially the ground... One suggestion: Make Jesus with a white robe, it's just more classical so that the people recognize him at the first view ;)

I was actually leaning away from that on purpose, just for originality's sake. But thanks for the suggestion! I think I actually prefer the "white robe look."

Excellent little build max! Those nets just look marvelous! Best part of the build in my opinion! *Wink wink* Okay, just kidding. But it is a great build all the same! I really like the rigging. Provided this is within the rules, I think you've got a shot at the gold! Nice work buddy!
