After these things Jesus went over [to the other side of] the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias. JH 6:1 And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased. JH 6:2 And Jesus went up into [on WU] a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples. JH 6:3 And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh [at hand]. JH 6:4 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence [where] shall we buy bread, that these may eat? JH 6:5 And this he said to prove [test] him: for he himself knew what he would do. JH 6:6 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth [eight months' wages worth WU] of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little. JH 6:7 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him, JH 6:8 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? JH 6:9 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. JH 6:10 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would [desired]. JH 6:11 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. JH 6:12 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto [left over by] them that had eaten. JH 6:13

Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should [is to come] into the world. JH 6:14 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into [to] a mountain himself alone. JH 6:15 And when even[ing] was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea [lake WU], JH 6:16 And entered into a ship [boat], and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was [had] not come to them. JH 6:17 And the sea arose [became rough WU] by reason of a great wind that blew. JH 6:18 So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs [three to 4 miles], they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh [near] unto the ship: and they were afraid. JH 6:19 But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid. JH 6:20 Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went [where they were going]. JH 6:21

The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea [lake WU] saw that there was none [no] other boat there, save [except] that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were [had] gone away alone; JH 6:22 (Howbeit [however] there came other boats from Tiberias nigh [near] unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:) JH 6:23 When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping [got into boats], and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus. JH 6:24

And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither [hear]? JH 6:25 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily [most assuredly], I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. JH 6:26 Labour not for the meat [food] which perisheth [spoils WU], but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for [on WU] him hath God the Father sealed [placed his seal of approval WU]. JH 6:27 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God [that God requires WU]? JH 6:28 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on [in] him whom he hath sent. JH 6:29 APPLY Natural They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work [will you do WU]? JH 6:30 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat. JH 6:31 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily [most assuredly], I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. JH 6:32 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. JH 6:33 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore [always] give us this bread. JH 6:34 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on [in] me shall never thirst. JH 6:35 JESUS Savior But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. JH 6:36 KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Insensitivity All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise [way] cast out. JH 6:37 NEED GOD He Enables For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. JH 6:38 PRINCIPLES APPLY God's Will And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing [none WU], but should raise it [them WU] up again at the last day. JH 6:39 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth [looks to WU] the Son, and believeth on [in] him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. JH 6:40 NEED GOD He Enables BELIEVE Save The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven. JH 6:41 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven? JH 6:42 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves. JH 6:43 No man [one] can come to me, except [unless] the Father which hath sent me draw[s] him: and I will raise him up at the last day. JH 6:44 NEED GOD He Enables It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of [by] God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of [from] the Father, cometh unto me. JH 6:45 HELPS BELIEVE Right & Wrong Not that any man hath seen the Father, save [except] he which is of [from] God, he hath seen the Father. JH 6:46 JESUS From Father Verily, verily [most assuredly], I say unto you, He that believeth on [in] me hath everlasting life. JH 6:47 I am that bread of life. JH 6:48 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. JH 6:49 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. JH 6:50 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. JH 6:51 BELIEVE Save The Jews therefore strove [argued WU] among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? JH 6:52 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily [most assuredly], I say unto you, Except [unless] ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. JH 6:53 Whoso [he who] eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. JH 6:54 For my flesh is meat indeed [true food WU], and my blood is drink indeed. JH 6:55 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. JH 6:56 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by [because of] the Father: JESUS From Father so he that eateth [feeds on] me, even he shall live by [because of] me. JH 6:57 GOD IN US NEED GOD He Enables This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever. JH 6:58 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum. JH 6:59 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear [accept WU] it? JH 6:60

When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it [this], he said unto them, Doth this offend you? JH 6:61 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before? JH 6:62 It is the spirit that quickeneth [gives life]; the flesh profiteth [counts for WU] nothing: OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Money & Worldly Things the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. JH 6:63 PRINCIPLES But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should [would] betray him. JH 6:64 And he said, Therefore [this is why WU] said I unto you, that no man [one] can come unto me, except [unless] it were given unto him [he is enabled WU] of [by] my Father.
