John 6 ©
Christ feedeth five thousand men with five loaves and two fishes: he withdraweth himself from the people, who would have made him a king, and walketh on the sea: the multitude flocking to him, he reproveth their carnal views, and requireth their faith in him whom God had sent. They ask a sign like that of the manna in the wilderness; he declareth himself to be the bread of life from heaven, and that none can live but by eating his flesh and drinking his blood. Many of his disciples taking offence at this, he sheweth his meaning to be spiritual. Many leaving him, Peter in the name of the twelve professeth stedfast faith in him; Jesus pronounceth one of them to be a devil.
Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.
mAnd Jesus took the loaves; and when he had ngiven 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.
Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty ufurlongs, they see Jesus vwalking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: wand they were afraid.
But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
¶The day following, when the people which stood yon the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, *save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone;
When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not athere, neither his disciples, they also *took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.
And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou *hither?
1Labour not for cthe *meat which perisheth, but for dthat meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which ethe Son of man shall give unto you: ffor him hath God the Father sealed.
Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
gI 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 hmy flesh, which iI will give for the jlife of the world.
Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
