GOSPEL OF JOHN: 226-250
According to John the Beloved of Jesus Christ…
226.5:46; For had you believed Moses, you would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
227. 5:47; But if you believe not his writings, how shall you believe my words!”
228. 6:1; After these things, Jesus went his way over the sea of Galilee, or of Tiberius.
229. 6:2; And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles, which he did on them that were diseased.
230. 6:3; Then Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.
231. 6:4; Now the Passover, a feast of the Jews, was near.
232. 6:5; Then Jesus lift up his eyes, and seeing that a great multitude came unto him, he said unto Philip, “Where shall we buy bread, that these might eat?”
233. 6:6-7; (And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do) *Philip answered him, “Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.”
234. 6:8-9; Then said unto him one of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, *there is a little boy here, which has five barley loaves, and two fish: but what are they among so many?”
235. 6:10a; And Jesus said, “Make the people sit down.”
236. 6:10b; (Now there was much grass in that place) then the men sat down in number, about five thousand.
237. 6:11; And Jesus took the bread, and gave thanks, and gave the disciples to them that were set down: and likewise of the fish as much as they would.
238. 6:12; And when they were satisfied, he said unto his disciples, “Gather up the broken meat which remains, that nothing be lost.”
239. 6:13; Then they gathered it together, and filled twelve baskets with the broken meat of the five barley loaves, which remained unto them that had eaten.
240. 6:14; Then the men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, “This is of a truth the Prophet that should come into the world.”
241. 6:15; When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come, and take him to make him a King, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.
242. 6:16-17; When even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea, *and entered into a ship, and went over the sea towards Capernaum: and now it was dark, and Jesus was not come to them.
243. 6:18; And the sea arose with a great wind that blew.
244. 6:19; And when they had rowed about five and twenty, or thirty furlongs, they saw Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing near unto the ship: so they were afraid.
245. 6:20; But he said unto them, “It is I: be not afraid.”
246. 6:21; Then willingly they received him into the ship, and the ship was by at the land, whether they went.
247. 6:22-23; The day following, the people which stood on the other side of the sea, saw that there was none other ship there, save that one, whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples in the ship, but that his disciples were gone alone, *and that there came other ships from Tiberias near unto the place where they ate the bread, after the Lord had given thanks.
248. 6:24; Now when the people saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.
249. 6:25; And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, “Rabbi, when came you hither?”
250. 6:26; Jesus answered them, and said, “Verily, verily I say unto you, you seek me not, because you saw the miracles, but because you ate of the loaves, and were filled.
