043:006:001
After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee,
which is the sea of Tiberias.


043:006:002
And a great multitude followed him,
because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.


043:006:003
And Jesus went up into a mountain,
and there he sat with his disciples.


043:006:004
And the passover,
a feast of the Jews,
was nigh.


043:006:005
When Jesus then lifted up his eyes,
and saw a great company come unto him,
he saith unto Philip,
Whence shall we buy bread,
that these may eat?


043:006:006
And this he said to prove him:
for he himself knew what he would do.


043:006:007
Philip answered him,
Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them,
that every one of them may take a little.


043:006:008
One of his disciples,
Andrew,
Simon Peter's brother,
saith unto him,


043:006:009
There is a lad here,
which hath five barley loaves,
and two small fishes:
but what are they among so many?


043:006:010
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.


043:006:011
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.


043:006:012
When they were filled,
he said unto his disciples,
Gather up the fragments that remain,
that nothing be lost.


043:006:013
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.


043:006:014
Then those men,
when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did,
said,
This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.


043:006:015
When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force,
to make him a king,
he departed again into a mountain himself alone.


043:006:016
And when even was now come,
his disciples went down unto the sea,


043:006:017
And entered into a ship,
and went over the sea toward Capernaum.
And it was now dark,
and Jesus was not come to them.


043:006:018
And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.


043:006:019
So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs,
they see Jesus walking on the sea,
and drawing nigh unto the ship:
and they were afraid.


043:006:020
But he saith unto them,
It is I;
be not afraid.


043:006:021
Then they willingly received him into the ship:
and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.


043:006:022
The day following,
when the people which stood on 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;


043:006:023
(Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread,
after that the Lord had given thanks:)


043:006:024
When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there,
neither his disciples,
they also took shipping,
and came to Capernaum,
seeking for Jesus.


043:006:025
And when they had found him on the other side of the sea,
they said unto him,
Rabbi,
when camest thou hither?


043:006:026
Jesus answered them and said,
Verily,
verily,
I say unto you,
Ye seek me,
not because ye saw the miracles,
but because ye did eat of the loaves,
and were filled.


043:006:027
Labour not for the meat which perisheth,
but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life,
which the Son of man shall give unto you:
for him hath God the Father sealed.


043:006:028
Then said they unto him,
What shall we do,
that we might work the works of God?


043:006:029
Jesus answered and said unto them,
This is the work of God,
that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.


043:006:030
They said therefore unto him,
What sign shewest thou then,
that we may see,
and believe thee?
what dost thou work?


043:006:031
Our fathers did eat manna in the desert;
as it is written,
He gave them bread from heaven to eat.


043:006:032
Then Jesus said unto them,
Verily,
verily,
I say unto you,
Moses gave you not that bread from heaven;
but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.


043:006:033
For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven,
and giveth life unto the world.


043:006:034
Then said they unto him,
Lord,
evermore give us this bread.


043:006:035
And Jesus said unto them,
I am the bread of life:
he that cometh to me shall never hunger;
and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.


043:006:036
But I said unto you,
That ye also have seen me,
and believe not.


043:006:037
All that the Father giveth me shall come to me;
and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.


043:006:038
For I came down from heaven,
not to do mine own will,
but the will of him that sent me.


043:006:039
And this is the Father's will which hath sent me,
that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing,
but should raise it up again at the last day.


043:006:040
And this is the will of him that sent me,
that every one which seeth the Son,
and believeth on him,
may have everlasting life:
and I will raise him up at the last day.


043:006:041
The Jews then murmured at him,
because he said,
I am the bread which came down from heaven.


043:006:042
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?


043:006:043
Jesus therefore answered and said unto them,
Murmur not among yourselves.


043:006:044
No man can come to me,
except the Father which hath sent me draw him:
and I will raise him up at the last day.


043:006:045
It is written in the prophets,
And they shall be all taught of God.
Every man therefore that hath heard,
and hath learned of the Father,
cometh unto me.


043:006:046
Not that any man hath seen the Father,
save he which is of God,
he hath seen the Father.


043:006:047
Verily,
verily,
I say unto you,
He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.


043:006:048
I am that bread of life.


043:006:049
Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness,
and are dead.


043:006:050
This is the bread which cometh down from heaven,
that a man may eat thereof,
and not die.


043:006:051
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.


043:006:052
The Jews therefore strove among themselves,
saying,
How can this man give us his flesh to eat?


043:006:053
Then Jesus said unto them,
Verily,
verily,
I say unto you,
Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man,
and drink his blood,
ye have no life in you.


043:006:054
Whoso eateth my flesh,
and drinketh my blood,
hath eternal life;
and I will raise him up at the last day.


043:006:055
For my flesh is meat indeed,
and my blood is drink indeed.


043:006:056
He that eateth my flesh,
and drinketh my blood,
dwelleth in me,
and I in him.


043:006:057
As the living Father hath sent me,
and I live by the Father:
so he that eateth me,
even he shall live by me.


043:006:058
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.


043:006:059
These things said he in the synagogue,
as he taught in Capernaum.


043:006:060
Many therefore of his disciples,
when they had heard this,
said,
This is an hard saying;
who can hear it?


043:006:061
When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it,
he said unto them,
Doth this offend you?


043:006:062
What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?


043:006:063
It is the spirit that quickeneth;
the flesh profiteth nothing:
the words that I speak unto you,
they are spirit,
and they are life.


043:006:064
But there are some of you that believe not.
For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not,
and who should betray him.


043:006:065
And he said,
Therefore said I unto you,
that no man can come unto me,
except it were given unto him of my Father.


043:006:066
From that time many of his disciples went back,
and walked no more with him.


043:006:067
Then said Jesus unto the twelve,
Will ye also go away?


043:006:068
Then Simon Peter answered him,
Lord,
to whom shall we go?
thou hast the words of eternal life.


043:006:069
And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ,
the Son of the living God.


043:006:070
Jesus answered them,
Have not I chosen you twelve,
and one of you is a devil?


043:006:071
He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon:
for he it was that should betray him,
being one of the twelve.
