Five Thousand Fed1 After these things a Jesus went away to the other side of b the Sea of Galilee (or c Tiberias). 2 A large crowd followed Him, because they saw the ▼
▼ Or attesting miracles, e signs which He was performing on those who were sick. 3 Then f Jesus went up on the mountain, and there He sat down with His disciples. 4 Now g the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was near. 5 Therefore Jesus, lifting up His eyes and seeing that a large crowd was coming to Him, said to h Philip, “Where are we to buy bread, so that these may eat?” 6 This He was saying to i test him, for He Himself knew what He was intending to do. 7 j Philip answered Him, k “Two hundred ▼
▼ The denarius was equivalent to a day’s wagesdenarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, for everyone to receive a little.” 8 One of His m disciples n Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to Him, 9 “There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two o fish, but what are these for so many people?” 10 Jesus said, “Have the people ▼
▼ Lit recline(d)sit down.” Now there was q much grass in the place. So the men ▼
▼ Lit recline(d)sat down, in number about s five thousand. 11 Jesus then took the loaves, and t having given thanks, He distributed to those who were seated; likewise also of the u fish as much as they wanted. 12 When they were filled, He said to His v disciples, “Gather up the leftover fragments so that nothing will be lost.” 13 So they gathered them up, and filled twelve w baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves which were left over by those who had eaten. 14 Therefore when the people saw the ▼
▼ Or attesting miraclesign which He had performed, they said, “This is truly the y Prophet who is to come into the world.”
Jesus Walks on the Water15 So Jesus, perceiving that they were ▼
▼ Or aboutintending to come and take Him by force aa to make Him king ab withdrew again to ac the mountain by Himself alone. 16 Now when evening came, His ad disciples went down to the sea, 17 and after getting into a boat, they started to cross the sea ae to Capernaum. It had already become dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. 18 The sea began to be stirred up because a strong wind was blowing. 19 Then, when they had rowed about ▼
▼ Lit 25 or 30 stadiathree or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and drawing near to the boat; and they were frightened. 20 But He said to them, “It is I; ▼
▼ Or stop being afraid, ah do not be afraid.” 21 So they were willing to receive Him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land to which they were going. 22 The next day ai the crowd that stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other small boat there, except one, and that Jesus aj had not entered with His disciples into the boat, but that His disciples had gone away alone. 23 There came other small boats from ak Tiberias near to the place where they ate the bread after the al Lord am had given thanks. 24 So when the crowd saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they themselves got into the small boats, and an came to Capernaum seeking Jesus. 25 When they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, ao “Rabbi, when did You get here?”
Words to the People26 Jesus answered them and said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you ap seek Me, not because you saw aq signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. 27 “Do not ar work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to as eternal life, which at the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, God, au has set His seal.” 28 Therefore they said to Him, “What shall we do, so that we may work the works of God?” 29 Jesus answered and said to them, “This is av the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He aw has sent.” 30 So they said to Him, ax “What then do You do for a ay sign, so that we may see, and believe You? What work do You perform? 31 az “Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, ‘ ba He gave them bread out of heaven to eat.’” 32 Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven. 33 “For the bread of God is ▼
▼ Or He who comesthat which bc comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” 34 Then they said to Him, “Lord, always bd give us this bread.” 35 Jesus said to them, be “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me bf will never thirst. 36 “But bg I said to you that you have seen Me, and yet do not believe. 37 bh “All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out. 38 “For bi I have come down from heaven, bj not to do My own will, but bk the will of Him who bl sent Me. 39 “This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of bm all that He has given Me I bn lose nothing, but bo raise it up on the last day. 40 “For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who bp beholds the Son and bq believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will br raise him up on the last day.”
Words to the Jews41 bs Therefore the Jews were grumbling about Him, because He said, “I am the bread that bt came down out of heaven.” 42 They were saying bu “Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother bv we know? How does He now say, ‘ bw I have come down out of heaven’?” 43 Jesus answered and said to them, “Do not grumble among yourselves. 44 “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me bx draws him; and I will by raise him up on the last day. 45 “It is written bz in the prophets, ‘ ca And they shall all be cb taught of God.’ Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father, comes to Me. 46 cc “Not that anyone has seen the Father, except the One who is from God; He has seen the Father. 47 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes cd has eternal life. 48 ce “I am the bread of life. 49 cf “Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. 50 “This is the bread which cg comes down out of heaven, so that one may eat of it and ch not die. 51 ci “I am the living bread that cj came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread ck he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give cl for the life of the world is cm My flesh.” 52 cn Then the Jews co began to argue with one another, saying, “How can this man give us His flesh to eat?” 53 So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of cp the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves. 54 “He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will cq raise him up on the last day. 55 “For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. 56 “He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood cr abides in Me, and I in him. 57 “As the cs living Father ct sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also will live because of Me. 58 “This is the bread which cu came down out of heaven; not as cv the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread cw will live forever.”
Words to the Disciples59 These things He said cx in the synagogue as He taught cy in Capernaum. 60 Therefore many of His cz disciples, when they heard this said da “This is a difficult statement; who can listen to it?” 61 But Jesus db conscious that His disciples grumbled at this, said to them, “Does this dc cause you to stumble? 62 “What then if you see dd the Son of Man de ascending to where He was before? 63 df “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; dg the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. 64 “But there are dh some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus di knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and dj who it was that would ▼
▼ Or hand Him overbetray Him. 65 And He was saying, “For this reason I have dl said to you, that no one can come to Me unless dm it has been granted him from the Father.”
Peter’s Confession of Faith66 As a result of this many of His dn disciples do withdrew and were not walking with Him anymore. 67 So Jesus said to dp the twelve, “You do not want to go away also, do you?” 68 dq Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have dr words of eternal life. 69 “We have believed and have come to know that You are ds the Holy One of God.” 70 Jesus answered them, dt “Did I Myself not choose you, du the twelve, and yet one of you is dv a devil?” 71 Now He meant Judas dw the son of Simon Iscariot, for he, dx one of dy the twelve ▼
