Five Thousand Fed

1 After these things Jesus R295 went away to the other side of the R296 Sea of Galilee (or Tiberias). R297 2 A large crowd followed Him, because they saw the signs R298 F71 which He was performing on those who were sick. 3 Then Jesus R299 went up on the mountain, and there He sat down with His disciples. 4 Now the R300 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 Philip, R301 "Where are we to buy bread, so that these may eat?" 6 This He was saying to test R302 him, for He Himself knew what He was intending to do. 7 Philip R303 answered Him, "Two R304 hundred denarii F72 worth of bread is not sufficient for them, for everyone to receive a little." 8 One of His disciples, R305 Andrew, R306 Simon Peter's brother, said to Him, 9 "There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two fish, R307 but what are these for so many people?" 10 Jesus said, "Have the people sit F73 down." Now there was much R308 grass in the place. So the men sat F73 down, in number about five R309 thousand. 11 Jesus then took the loaves, and having R310 given thanks, He distributed to those who were seated; likewise also of the fish R311 as much as they wanted. 12 When they were filled, He said to His disciples, R312 "Gather up the leftover fragments so that nothing will be lost." 13 So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets R313 with fragments from the five barley loaves which were left over by those who had eaten. 14 Therefore when the people saw the sign F74 which He had performed, they said, "This is truly the Prophet R314 who is to come into the world."

Jesus Walks on the Water

15 So Jesus, perceiving that they were intending F75 to come and take Him by force to R315 make Him king, withdrew R316 again to the R317 mountain by Himself alone.

16 Now when evening came, His disciples R318 went down to the sea, 17 and after getting into a boat, they started to cross the sea to R319 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 three F76 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; do R320 F77 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 the R321 crowd that stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other small boat there, except one, and that Jesus had R322 not entered with His disciples into the boat, but that His disciples had gone away alone. 23 There came other small boats from Tiberias R323 near to the place where they ate the bread after the Lord R324 had R325 given thanks. 24 So when the crowd saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they themselves got into the small boats, and came R326 to Capernaum seeking Jesus. 25 When they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, "Rabbi, R327 when did You get here?"

Words to the People

26 Jesus answered them and said, "Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek R328 Me, not because you saw signs, R329 but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. 27 "Do not work R330 for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal R331 life, which the R332 Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, God, has R333 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 the R334 work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has R335 sent." 30 So they said to Him, "What R336 then do You do for a sign, R337 so that we may see, and believe You? What work do You perform? 31 "Our R338 fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, `HE R339 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 that F78 which comes R340 down out of heaven, and gives life to the world." 34 Then they said to Him, "Lord, always give R341 us this bread."

35 Jesus said to them, "I R342 am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will R343 never thirst. 36 "But I R344 said to you that you have seen Me, and yet do not believe. 37 "All R345 that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out. 38 "For I R346 have come down from heaven, not R347 to do My own will, but the R348 will of Him who sent R349 Me. 39 "This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all R350 that He has given Me I lose R351 nothing, but raise R352 it up on the last day. 40 "For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds R353 the Son and believes R354 in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise R355 him up on the last day."

Words to the Jews

41 Therefore R356 the Jews were grumbling about Him, because He said, "I am the bread that came R357 down out of heaven." 42 They were saying, "Is R358 not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we R359 know? How does He now say, `I R360 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 draws R361 him; and I will raise R362 him up on the last day. 45 "It is written in R363 the prophets, `AND R364 THEY SHALL ALL BE TAUGHT R365 OF GOD.' Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father, comes to Me. 46 "Not R366 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 has R367 eternal life. 48 "I R368 am the bread of life. 49 "Your R369 fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. 50 "This is the bread which comes R370 down out of heaven, so that one may eat of it and not R371 die. 51 "I R372 am the living bread that came R373 down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he R374 will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for R375 the life of the world is My R376 flesh."

52 Then R377 the Jews began R378 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 the R379 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 raise R380 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 abides R381 in Me, and I in him. 57 "As the living R382 Father sent R383 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 came R384 down out of heaven; not as the R385 fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will R386 live forever."

Words to the Disciples

59 These things He said in R387 the synagogue as He taught in R388 Capernaum.

60 Therefore many of His disciples, R389 when they heard this said, "This R390 is a difficult statement; who can listen to it?" 61 But Jesus, conscious R391 that His disciples grumbled at this, said to them, "Does this cause R392 you to stumble? 62 "What then if you see the R393 Son of Man ascending R394 to where He was before? 63 "It R395 is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the R396 words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. 64 "But there are some R397 of you who do not believe." For Jesus knew R398 from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who R399 it was that would betray F79 Him. 65 And He was saying, "For this reason I have said R400 to you, that no one can come to Me unless it R401 has been granted him from the Father."

Peter's Confession of Faith

66 As a result of this many of His disciples R402 withdrew R403 and were not walking with Him anymore. 67 So Jesus said to the R404 twelve, "You do not want to go away also, do you?" 68 Simon R405 Peter answered Him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words R406 of eternal life. 69 "We have believed and have come to know that You are the R407 Holy One of God." 70 Jesus answered them, "Did R408 I Myself not choose you, the R409 twelve, and yet one of you is a R410 devil?" 71 Now He meant Judas the R411 son of Simon Iscariot, for he, one R412 of the R413 twelve, was F80 going to betray Him.
