John 6

John 6:1 After these things Jesus crossed over the Sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberius Caesar.

John 6:2 and a great multitude followed Him, because they saw His miracles which He did on them that were diseased.

John 6:3 Then Jesus went up to a mountain, and there He sat with His disciples.

John 6:4 For the Passover, a feast of the Jews, was close.

John 6:5 Then when Jesus lifted up His eyes, and saw a great crowd coming towards Him, He said to Philip, from where will we buy bread that these may eat?

John 6:6 He said this to test him: for He Himself knew what He was about to do.

John 6:7 Philip answered Him, two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that all of them may eat a little.

John 6:8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to Him,

John 6:9 There is a boy here, who has five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?

John 6:10 Then 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.

John 6:11 Then Jesus took the loaves; and when He had given thanks, He distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that had sat down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.

John 6:12 When they were filled, He said to His disciples, gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.

John 6:13 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above from those that had eaten.

John 6:14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, this is truly that prophet that should come into the world.

John 6:15 Therefore when Jesus perceived that they were about to come and seize Him, to make Him a king, He departed again to a mountain Himself alone.

John 6:16 When evening had come, His disciples went down to the sea,

John 6:17 and entered into a boat, and went across the sea toward Capernaum. It was now dark, and Jesus had not come to them.

John 6:18 and the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.

John 6:19 So when they had rowed about twenty-five or thirty stadia, they saw Jesus walking on the sea, and getting close to the boat: and they were afraid.

John 6:20 But He said to them, I am; do not be afraid!

John 6:21 Then they willingly received Him into the boat: and immediately the boat was at the land to where they went.

John 6:22 The following day, when the people who stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other boat there, except the one into which His disciples had entered, and that Jesus went not with His disciples into the boat, but that His disciples had gone away alone;

John 6:23 however there came other boats from Tiberius close to the place where they did eat bread, after the Lord had given thanks.

John 6:24 Therefore when the people saw that Jesus was not there, neither His disciples, they also took boats, and came to Capernaum, seeking Jesus.

John 6:25 When they had found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, Rabbi, when did You come here?

John 6:26 Jesus answered them and said, truly, truly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the miracles, but because you did eat of the loaves, and were filled.

John 6:27 Labor not for the food which perishes, but for that food which remains into infinite life, which the Son of Man will give to you: for Him has God the Father set His seal.

John 6:28 Then said they to Him, what will we do, that we might work the works of God?

John 6:29 Jesus answered and said to them, this is the work of God that you believe in Him who He has sent.

John 6:30 Therefore they said to Him, what sign do You show then, that we may see, and believe You? What work will You do?

John 6:31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.

John 6:32 Then Jesus said to them, truly, truly, I say to you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven.

John 6:33 For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven, and gives life to the world.

John 6:34 Then said they to Him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.

John 6:35 and Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life: he that comes to Me will never hunger; and He that believes on Me will never thirst.

John 6:36 But I said to you, that you also have seen Me, and do not believe.

John 6:37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me; and him that comes to Me I will in no way cast out.

John 6:38 For I came down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him that sent Me.

John 6:39 and this is the Father’s will who has sent Me, that of all who He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

John 6:40 For this is the will of Him that sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son, and believes in Him, may have infinite life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

John 6:41 Then the Jews murmured at Him, because He said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.

John 6:42 and they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He says, I came down from heaven?

John 6:43 Therefore Jesus answered and said to them, murmur not among yourselves.

John 6:44 No man can come to Me, unless the Father who has sent Me draws him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

John 6:45 It is written in the prophets, and they will be all taught of God. Therefore every man that has heard, and has learned of the Father, comes to Me.

John 6:46 Not that any man has seen the Father, except He whom is of God, He has seen the Father.

John 6:47 Truly, truly, I say to you, He that believes in Me has infinite life.

John 6:48 I am that bread of life.

John 6:49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.

John 6:50 This is the bread which comes down from heaven that a man may eat of it, and not die.

John 6:51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if anyone eat of this bread, he will live into the New Covenant Age: and the bread that I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

John 6:52 Therefore the Jews argued among themselves, saying, how can this man give us His flesh to eat?

John 6:53 Then Jesus said to them, truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His blood, you have no life in you.

John 6:54 Whoever eats My flesh, and drinks My blood, has infinite life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

John 6:55 For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.

John 6:56 He that eats My flesh, and drinks My blood, stays in Me, and I in him.

John 6:57 As the living Father has sent Me, and I live by the Father: so he that eats Me, even he will live by Me.

John 6:58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eats of this bread will be living into the New Covenant Age.

John 6:59 These things said He in the synagogue, as He taught in Capernaum.

John 6:60 Therefore many of His disciples, when they had heard this, said, this is a hard saying; who can hear it?

John 6:61 When Jesus knew in himself that His disciples murmured at it, He said to them, does this offend you?

John 6:62 What if you will see the Son of Man ascend up where He was before?

John 6:63 It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak to you, they are spirit, and they are life.

John 6:64 But there are some of you that do not believe. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that did not believe, and who would betray Him.

John 6:65 Then He said, therefore said I to you, that no man can come to Me, unless it was given to him by My Father.

John 6:66 From that time many of His disciples went into looking back, and walked with Him no more.

John 6:67 Then said Jesus to the twelve, will you also go away?

John 6:68 Then Simon Peter answered Him, Lord, to whom will we go? You have the words of infinite life.

John 6:69 For we believe and are certain that you are the Holy One of God!

John 6:70 Jesus answered them, have I not chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?

John 6:71 He spoke of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he was about to betray Him, being one of the twelve.
