Jesus Feeds Five Thousand

6After this, Jesus crossed over to the far side of the Sea of Galilee, also known as the Sea of Tiberias.G3326G5023G2424G565G4008G2281G1056G5085 2A huge crowd kept following him wherever he went, because they saw his miraculous signs as he healed the sick.G2532G4183G3793G190G846G3754G3708G846G4592G3739G4160G1909G770 3Then Jesus climbed a hill and sat down with his disciples around him.G1161G2424G424G1519G3735G2532G1563G2521G3326G846G3101 4(It was nearly time for the Jewish Passover celebration.)G1161G3957G1859G2453G2258G1451 5Jesus soon saw a huge crowd of people coming to look for him. Turning to Philip, he asked, "Where can we buy bread to feed all these people?"G2424G3767G1869G3788G2532G2300G3754G4183G3793G2064G4314G846G3004G4314G5376G4159G59G740G2443G3778G5315 6He was testing Philip, for he already knew what he was going to do.G1161G5124G3004G3985G846G1063G846G1492G5101G3195G4160 7Philip replied, "Even if we worked for months, we wouldn't have enough money to feed them!"G5376G611G846G1250G1220G740G714G3756G714G846G2443G1538G846G2983G5100G1024 8Then Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, spoke up.G1520G1537G846G3101G406G4613G4074G80G3004G846 9"There's a young boy here with five barley loaves and two fish. But what good is that with this huge crowd?"G2076G1520G3808G5602G3739G2192G4002G2916G740G2532G1417G3795G235G5101G2076G5023G1519G5118 10"Tell everyone to sit down," Jesus said. So they all sat down on the grassy slopes. G1161G2424G2036G4160G444G377G1161G2258G4183G5528G1722G5117G3767G435G377G706G5616G4000 11Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks to God, and distributed them to the people. Afterward he did the same with the fish. And they all ate as much as they wanted.G1161G2424G2983G740G2532G2168G1239G3101G1161G3101G345G2532G3668G1537G3795G3745G2309 12After everyone was full, Jesus told his disciples, "Now gather the leftovers, so that nothing is wasted."G1161G5613G1705G3004G846G3101G4863G2801G4052G3363G5100G622 13So they picked up the pieces and filled twelve baskets with scraps left by the people who had eaten from the five barley loaves.G3767G4863G2532G1072G1427G2894G2801G1537G4002G2916G740G3739G4052G977 14When the people saw him do this miraculous sign, they exclaimed, "Surely, he is the Prophet we have been expecting!"G3767G444G1492G4592G3739G2424G4160G3004G3754G3778G2076G230G4396G2064G1519G2889 15When Jesus saw that they were ready to force him to be their king, he slipped away into the hills by himself.G2424G3767G1097G3754G3195G2064G2532G726G846G726G2443G4160G846G935G402G3825G1519G3735G846G3441

Jesus Walks on Water

16That evening Jesus' disciples went down to the shore to wait for him.G1161G5613G3798G1096G846G3101G2597G1909G2281 17But as darkness fell and Jesus still hadn't come back, they got into the boat and headed across the lake toward Capernaum.G2532G1684G1519G4143G2064G4008G2281G1519G2584G2532G1096G2235G4653G2532G2424G2064G3756G2064G4314G846 18Soon a gale swept down upon them, and the sea grew very rough.G5037G2281G1326G3173G417G4154 19They had rowed three or four miles when suddenly they saw Jesus walking on the water toward the boat. They were terrified,G3767G1643G5613G4002G1501G2228G5144G4712G2334G2424G4043G1909G2281G2532G1096G1451G4143G2532G5399 20but he called out to them, "Don't be afraid. I am here!"G1161G3004G846G1510G1473G5399G3361G5399 21Then they were eager to let him in the boat, and immediately they arrived at their destination!G3767G2309G2983G846G1519G4143G2532G2112G4143G1096G1909G1093G1519G3739G5217

Jesus, the Bread of Life

22The next day the crowd that had stayed on the far shore saw that the disciples had taken the only boat, and they realized Jesus had not gone with them.G1887G3793G3588G2476G4008G2281G1492G3754G2258G3756G243G4142G1563G1508G1565G1520G1519G3739G846G3101G1684G2532G3754G2424G4897G3756G4897G846G3101G1519G4142G235G846G3101G565G3441 23Several boats from Tiberias landed near the place where the Lord had blessed the bread and the people had eaten.G235G1161G2064G243G4142G1537G5085G1451G5117G3699G5315G740G2962G2168 24So when the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they got into the boats and went across to Capernaum to look for him.G3753G3793G3767G1492G3754G2424G2076G3756G1563G3761G846G3101G846G2532G1684G1519G4143G2532G2064G1519G2584G2212G2424 25They found him on the other side of the lake and asked, "Rabbi, when did you get here?"G2532G2147G846G4008G2281G2036G846G4461G4219G1096G5602 26Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, you want to be with me because I fed you, not because you understood the miraculous signs.G2424G611G846G2532G2036G281G281G3004G5213G2212G3165G3756G3754G1492G4592G235G3754G5315G1537G740G2532G5526 27But don't be so concerned about perishable things like food. Spend your energy seeking the eternal life that the Son of Man can give you. For God the Father has given me the seal of his approval."G2038G3361G1035G3588G622G235G1035G3588G3306G1519G166G2222G3739G5207G444G1325G5213G1063G5126G4972G2316G3962G4972 28They replied, "We want to perform God's works, too. What should we do?"G3767G2036G4314G846G5101G4160G4160G2443G2038G2041G2316 29Jesus told them, "This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent."G2424G611G2532G2036G846G5124G2076G2041G2316G2443G4100G1519G3739G1565G649 30They answered, "Show us a miraculous sign if you want us to believe in you. What can you do?G2036G3767G846G5101G4592G4160G4771G3767G2443G1492G2532G4100G4671G5101G2038 31After all, our ancestors ate manna while they journeyed through the wilderness! The Scriptures say, `Moses gave them bread from heaven to eat.'"G2257G3962G5315G3131G1722G2048G2531G2076G1125G1325G846G740G1537G3772G5315 32Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, Moses didn't give you bread from heaven. My Father did. And now he offers you the true bread from heaven.G3767G2424G2036G846G281G281G3004G5213G3475G1325G5213G3756G740G1537G3772G235G3450G3962G1325G5213G228G740G1537G3772 33The true bread of God is the one who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world."G1063G740G2316G2076G3588G2597G1537G3772G2532G1325G2222G2889 34"Sir," they said, "give us that bread every day."G3767G2036G4314G846G2962G3842G1325G2254G5126G740 35Jesus replied, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.G1161G2424G2036G846G1473G1510G740G2222G2064G4314G3165G3364G3983G2532G4100G1519G1691G1372G3364G4455G1372 36But you haven't believed in me even though you have seen me.G235G2036G5213G3754G3708G2532G3708G3165G2532G4100G3756 37However, those the Father has given me will come to me, and I will never reject them.G3956G3739G3962G1325G3427G2240G4314G1691G2532G2064G4314G3165G1544G3364G1544G1854 38For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will.G3754G2597G1537G3772G3756G2443G4160G1699G2307G235G2307G3992G3165 39And this is the will of God, that I should not lose even one of all those he has given me, but that I should raise them up at the last day.G1161G5124G2076G3962G2307G3588G3992G3165G2443G3956G3739G1325G3427G622G3361G1537G846G235G450G846G450G1722G2078G2250 40For it is my Father's will that all who see his Son and believe in him should have eternal life. I will raise them up at the last day."G1161G5124G2076G2307G3992G3165G2443G3956G3588G2334G5207G2532G4100G1519G846G2192G166G2222G2532G1473G450G846G450G2078G2250 41Then the people began to murmur in disagreement because he had said, "I am the bread that came down from heaven."G2453G3767G1111G4012G846G3754G2036G1473G1510G740G3588G2597G1537G3772 42They said, "Isn't this Jesus, the son of Joseph? We know his father and mother. How can he say, `I came down from heaven'?"G2532G3004G2076G3756G3778G2424G5207G2501G3739G3962G2532G3384G2249G1492G4459G3767G3778G3004G3754G2597G1537G3772 43But Jesus replied, "Stop complaining about what I said.G2424G3767G611G2532G2036G846G1111G3361G3326G240 44For no one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them to me, and at the last day I will raise them up.G3762G1410G2064G4314G3165G3362G3962G3588G3992G3165G1670G846G2532G1473G450G846G450G2078G2250 45As it is written in the Scriptures, `They will all be taught by God.' Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me.G2076G1125G1722G4396G2532G2071G3956G1318G2316G3956G3767G191G2532G3129G3844G3962G2064G4314G3165 46(Not that anyone has ever seen the Father; only I, who was sent from God, have seen him.)G3756G3754G5100G3708G3962G1508G3588G3844G5607G2316G3778G3708G3962 47"I tell you the truth, anyone who believes has eternal life.G281G281G3004G5213G4100G1519G1691G2192G166G2222 48Yes, I am the bread of life!G1473G1510G740G2222 49Your ancestors ate manna in the wilderness, but they all died.G5216G3962G5315G3131G1722G2048G2532G599 50Anyone who eats the bread from heaven, however, will never die.G3778G2076G740G3588G2597G1537G3772G3363G5100G5315G1537G846G2532G3363G599 51I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever; and this bread, which I will offer so the world may live, is my flesh."G1473G1510G2198G740G3588G2597G1537G3772G1437G5100G5315G1537G5127G740G2198G1519G165G1161G2532G740G3739G1473G1325G2076G3450G4561G3739G1473G1325G5228G2222G2889 52Then the people began arguing with each other about what he meant. "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?" they asked.G2453G3767G3164G4314G240G3004G4459G1410G3778G1325G2254G4561G5315 53So Jesus said again, "I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you cannot have eternal life within you.G3767G2424G2036G846G281G281G3004G5213G3362G5315G4561G5207G444G2532G4095G846G129G2192G3756G2222G1722G1438 54But anyone who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise that person at the last day.G5176G3450G4561G2532G4095G3450G129G2192G166G2222G2532G1473G450G846G450G2078G2250 55For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink.G1063G3450G4561G2076G1035G230G2532G3450G129G2076G4213G230 56Anyone who eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.G5176G3450G4561G2532G4095G3450G129G3306G1722G1698G2504G1722G846 57I live because of the living Father who sent me; in the same way, anyone who feeds on me will live because of me.G2531G2198G3962G649G3165G2504G2198G1223G3962G2532G5176G3165G2548G2198G1223G1691 58I am the true bread that came down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will not die as your ancestors did (even though they ate the manna) but will live forever."G3778G2076G740G3588G2597G1537G3772G3756G2531G5216G3962G5315G3131G2532G599G5176G5126G740G2198G1519G165 59He said these things while he was teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum.G5023G2036G1722G4864G1321G1722G2584

Many Disciples Desert Jesus

60Many of his disciples said, "This is very hard to understand. How can anyone accept it?"G4183G3767G1537G846G3101G191G2036G3778G2076G4642G3056G5101G1410G191G846 61Jesus was aware that his disciples were complaining, so he said to them, "Does this offend you?G1161G2424G1492G1722G1438G3754G846G3101G1111G4012G5127G2036G846G5124G4624G5209 62Then what will you think if you see the Son of Man ascend to heaven again?G3767G1437G2334G5207G444G305G3699G2258G4386 63The Spirit alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and life.G2076G4151G2227G4561G3756G5623G3762G4487G3739G1473G2980G5213G2076G4151G2532G2076G2222 64But some of you do not believe me." (For Jesus knew from the beginning which ones didn't believe, and he knew who would betray him.)G235G1526G5100G1537G5216G3739G4100G3756G1063G2424G1492G1537G746G5101G1526G4100G3361G2532G5101G2076G3860G846 65Then he said, "That is why I said that people can't come to me unless the Father gives them to me."G2532G3004G1223G5124G2046G5213G3754G3762G1410G2064G4314G3165G3362G5600G1325G846G1537G3450G3962 66At this point many of his disciples turned away and deserted him.G1537G5127G4183G846G3101G565G1519G3694G2532G4043G3765G3326G846 67Then Jesus turned to the Twelve and asked, "Are you also going to leave?"G3767G2036G2424G1427G3361G2309G5210G2532G5217 68Simon Peter replied, "Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life.G3767G4613G4074G611G846G2962G4314G5101G565G2192G4487G166G2222 69We believe, and we know you are the Holy One of God."G2532G2249G4100G2532G1097G3754G4771G1488G5547G5207G2198G2316 70Then Jesus said, "I chose the twelve of you, but one is a devil."G2424G611G846G1586G3756G1473G1586G5209G1427G2532G1520G1537G5216G2076G1228 71He was speaking of Judas, son of Simon Iscariot, one of the Twelve, who would later betray him.G1161G3004G2455G2469G4613G1063G3778G3195G3860G846G5607G1520G1537G1427
