Christ feedeth five thousand.

A. D. 32.

10. Deut.

15

Then he took the five loaves and the two L. 9. fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed 16 them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude. And they did eat, and 17 were all filled. When they were filled, he said J. 6. unto his disciples, “Gather up the fragments 12 “ that remain, that nothing be lost.” Therefore 13 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. Then those men, when 14

they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, a Gen. 49. This is of a truth d that prophet that should 18. 15, 18. come into the world. 64. He walketh on the sea.

J. 6. 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. And when even was now come, 16 his disciples went down unto the sea, and en-17 tered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them. But the ship was now M". 14. in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves : for 24 the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch 25

of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on
a Job 9.8. the sea. And when the disciples saw him a walk- 26

ing on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It
is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But 27
straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, “Be
“ of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.” And 28
Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be
thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And 29
he said, “ Come.” And when Peter was come
down out of the ship, he walked on the water,
to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind 30
boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to
sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

caught him, and said unto him, “O thou of little 32" faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?” And when

they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. 33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth b thou art the Ps 2.7.

53 into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the

55 ship, straightway they knew him, and ran through

that whole region round about, and began to

carry about in beds those that were sick, where
56 they heard he was. And whithersoever he en-

tered, into villages, or cities, or country, they
laid the sick in the streets, and besought him
that they might touch if it were but the ? bor-Acts 19.

65. Christ the true bread of life. J. 6.

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 23 that his disciples were gone away alone; (how

beit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh

unto the place where they did eat bread, after 24 that the Lord had given thanks :) when the

people therefore saw that Jesus was not there,

neither his disciples, they also took shipping, 25 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 26 thou hither? 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.

“ for that meat which endureth unto everlasting 27

life, which the Son of man shall give unto

you : * for him hath God the Father sealed.” Then said they unto him, What shall we do, 28

that we might work the works of God? Jesus 29 bl John 3. answered and said unto them, “This is the

“ work of God, that ye believe on him whom

“ he hath sent.” They said therefore unto him, 30 1 Cor. 1. . What sign shewest thou then, that we may

see, and believe thee? what dost thou work? d Ex. 16. d Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it 31 15. Num.11.7.

is written, "He gave them bread from heaven Neh. 9.15. to eat. Then Jesus said unto them, “Verily, 32 • Ps.78.24," verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not

« 3 that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth

you the true bread from heaven. For the 33 66 bread of God is 4 he which cometh down from

heaven, and giveth life unto the world.” Then 34 said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. And Jesus said unto them, “I am the 35 “ bread of life: he that cometh to me shall

never hunger; and he that believeth on me “ shall never thirst. But I said unto you, That 36

ye also have seen me, and believe not. All 37

" that the Father giveth me “shall come to me; f 2 Tim. 2. “ and fhim that cometh to me I will in no wise

“ cast out. For I came down from heaven, not 38
" to do mine own will, but the will of him that
6 sent me. And this is the Father's will which 39

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. And this is the will 40 “ 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.”

J. 6. 41 The Jews then murmured at him, because he A. D. 32

said, I am the bread which came down from 42 heaven. 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 43 down from heaven? Jesus therefore answered

and said unto them, “Murmur not among your44“ selves. No man can come to me, except the ‘Cant. 1.4.

45“ I will raise him up at the last day. It is Is. 54.13.

came down from heaven: if any man eat of “ this bread, he shall live for ever: and the Heb. 10.

“ bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will 52“ give for the life of the world." The Jews there

fore strove among themselves, saying, How can 53 this man give us his flesh to eat? 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. 54 “ Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my

“ blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him 55“ up at the last day. For my flesh is meat 56 “ indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He

Peter confesseth Christ. by me. This is that bread which came down J. 6. 58 “ from heaven : not as your fathers did eat “ manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this “ bread shall live for ever.” These things said 59 he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.

Many therefore of his disciples, when they 60 had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it? When Jesus knew in himself that 61

his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Acts 1.9. “ Doth this offend you? What and if ye shall 62 Eph. 4. 8. see the Son of man ascend

up

where he was
12 Cor.3.6. “ before? 'it is the spirit that quickeneth; the 63

“ flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak
“ unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. But 64
“ 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.
And he said, “ Therefore said I unto you, that 65

no man can come unto me, except it were
given unto him of my Father.”

From that time many of his disciples went 66
back, and walked no more with him. Then said 67
Jesus unto the twelve, “Will ye also go away?”

Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom 68 mActs 5. shall we go? thou hast mthe words of eternal

life. And we believe and are sure that thou art 69
2 that Christ, the Son of the living God. Jesus 70
answered them, “Have not I chosen you twelve,
and one of you is a devil ?" He spake of Judas 71
Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that
should betray him, being one of the twelve.

After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: J. 7. for he would not walk in Jewry, because the 1 Jews sought to kill him.
