Tools specific to Jhn 6:1

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:1

Some time after this, Jesus crossed to the far shore of the Sea of Galilee (that is, the Sea of Tiberias),

Tools specific to Jhn 6:2

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:2

and a great crowd of people followed him because they saw the signs he had performed by healing the sick.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:3

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:3

Then Jesus went up on a mountainside and sat down with his disciples.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:4

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:4

The Jewish Passover Festival was near.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:5

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:5

When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:6

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:6

He asked this only to test him, for he already had in mind what he was going to do.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:7

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:7

Philip answered him, “It would take more than half a year’s wages[fn] to buy enough bread for each one to have a bite!”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:8

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:8

Another of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up,

Tools specific to Jhn 6:9

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:9

“Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:10

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:10

Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” There was plenty of grass in that place, and they sat down (about five thousand men were there).

Tools specific to Jhn 6:11

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:11

Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:12

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:12

When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:13

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:13

So they gathered them and filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley loaves left over by those who had eaten.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:14

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:14

After the people saw the sign Jesus performed, they began to say, “Surely this is the Prophet who is to come into the world.”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:15

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:15

Jesus, knowing that they intended to come and make him king by force, withdrew again to a mountain by himself.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:16

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:16

When evening came, his disciples went down to the lake,

Tools specific to Jhn 6:17

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:17

where they got into a boat and set off across the lake for Capernaum. By now it was dark, and Jesus had not yet joined them.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:18

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:18

A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:19

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:19

When they had rowed about three or four miles,[fn] they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water; and they were frightened.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:20

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:20

But he said to them, “It is I; don’t be afraid.”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:21

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:21

Then they were willing to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat reached the shore where they were heading.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:22

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:22

The next day the crowd that had stayed on the opposite shore of the lake realized that only one boat had been there, and that Jesus had not entered it with his disciples, but that they had gone away alone.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:23

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:23

Then some boats from Tiberias landed near the place where the people had eaten the bread after the Lord had given thanks.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:24

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:24

Once the crowd realized that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they got into the boats and went to Capernaum in search of Jesus.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:25

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:25

When they found him on the other side of the lake, they asked him, “Rabbi, when did you get here?”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:26

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:26

Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw the signs I performed but because you ate the loaves and had your fill.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:27

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:27

Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:28

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:28

Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:29

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:29

Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:30

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:30

So they asked him, “What sign then will you give that we may see it and believe you? What will you do?

Tools specific to Jhn 6:31

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:31

Our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written: ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’[fn]

Tools specific to Jhn 6:32

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:32

Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:33

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:33

For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:34

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:34

“Sir,” they said, “always give us this bread.”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:35

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:35

Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:36

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:36

But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:37

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:37

All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:38

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:38

For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:39

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:39

And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:40

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:40

For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:41

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:41

At this the Jews there began to grumble about him because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:42

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:42

They said, “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, ‘I came down from heaven’?”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:43

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:43

“Stop grumbling among yourselves,” Jesus answered.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:44

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:44

“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:45

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:45

It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’[fn] Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from him comes to me.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:46

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:46

No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:47

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:47

Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:48

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:48

I am the bread of life.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:49

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:49

Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, yet they died.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:50

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:50

But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which anyone may eat and not die.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:51

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:51

I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:52

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:52

Then the Jews began to argue sharply among themselves, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:53

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:53

Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:54

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:54

Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:55

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:55

For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:56

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:56

Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:57

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:57

Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:58

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:58

This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your ancestors ate manna and died, but whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:59

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:59

He said this while teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:60

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:60

On hearing it, many of his disciples said, “This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:61

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:61

Aware that his disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them, “Does this offend you?

Tools specific to Jhn 6:62

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:62

Then what if you see the Son of Man ascend to where he was before!

Tools specific to Jhn 6:63

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:63

The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit[fn] and life.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:64

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:64

Yet there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus had known from the beginning which of them did not believe and who would betray him.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:65

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:65

He went on to say, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled them.”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:66

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:66

From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:67

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:67

“You do not want to leave too, do you?” Jesus asked the Twelve.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:68

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:68

Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.

Tools specific to Jhn 6:69

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:69

We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:70

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:70

Then Jesus replied, “Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!”

Tools specific to Jhn 6:71

Unchecked Copy Box Jhn 6:71

(He meant Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, who, though one of the Twelve, was later to betray him.)
