6:1 After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.
1 After this Jesus crossed the Lake of Tiberias (also named, the Sea of Galilee).
IHS = ENG.Jesus AR.Yeshua
Jesus: universal language
6:2 And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.
2 A great multitude followed Him, because they witnessed the miraculous works He performed on the sick. * *
6:3 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.
3 Then Jesus went up the mountain, and sat there with His disciples.
6:4 And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.
4 The Judean Feast of the Passover was at hand.
6:5 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he says unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?
5 And when He looked around and saw the crowd coming towards Him, He said to Philip, "Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?"
6:6 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.
6 He said this to test the resolve of Philip, for He knew what He was going to do.
6:7 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.
LATIN ducentorum denariorum
7 "Two hundred denarii worth of bread," replied Philip, "is not enough for them all to get a little to eat."
Philip: from Bethsaida of Galilee.
6:8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, says unto him,
8 One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, made an observation:
Andrew: from Bethsaida of Galilee.
6:9 There is a lad here, which has five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?
Loaves of barley αρτους κριθινους (2916)
9 "There is one lad here with five loaves of barley and two fishes, but what are these among so many?"
6:10 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.
10 "Make the people sit down," said Jesus. The ground was covered with thick grass; so they sat down, the number of men was about 5,000.
6:11 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.
Little fishes [delicacy] οψαρια (3795)
11 Then Jesus took the bread loaves and after giving thanks, He distributed to the disciples and the disciples served the people reclining on the ground; and the fishes were distributed in like manner, as much as they wished.
6:12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
12 When all were satisfied, He said to His disciples, "Gather up the broken pieces that are left over, so that nothing is lost."
6:13 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.
13 Therefore they gathered them up; they filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley loaves—those broken portions that remained after they had done eating.
6:14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is truthfully that prophet that should come into the world.
14 So the people, witnessing the miracle He performed, said, "This has to be the Prophet who was to come into the world."
6:15 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.
15 However, knowing that they were about to come and carry Him off by force to make Him king, Jesus withdrew again up the mountain alone by Himself.
6:16 And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,
16 Later, toward evening, His disciples went down to the Lake.
6:17 And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.
17 There they boarded a boat, and crossed the Lake to Capernaum. By this time it had become dark, and Jesus had not come along with them.
6:18 And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.
18 The Lake became like a rough sea, because a strong wind was blowing.
Sudden wind-driven 10 foot waves recorded at Tiberias.
6:19 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.
19 Having rowed three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the water and coming near the boat, and they became afraid.
6:20 But he says unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
20 But He called to them. "I am [He]," He said, "do not fear."
6:21 Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land where they went.
21 They hastened to take Him on board; and in a moment the boat reached land at the point where they were going.
6:22 The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other boat there, save that one into where his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone;
22 The next morning, the crowd that was standing about on the other side of the Lake found no boat there; and seeing that Jesus did not board the boat before with His disciples, they concluded that His disciples went away without Him.
6:23 (nevertheless there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:)
Little boats πλοιαρια (4142)
23 Then a number of small boats arrived from Tiberias near to the place where they had eaten the bread after the LORD had given the blessing.
6:24 When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also went on board ships, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.
24 When the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor His disciples were there, they themselves took the boats and came to Capernaum to look for Jesus.
6:25 And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when came you here?
25 So when they had crossed the Lake and did find Him, they asked Him, "Rabbi, when did you come here?"
6:26 Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, All of you seek me, not because all of you saw the miracles, but because all of you did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
26 "In all truthfulness, I tell you," replied Jesus, "that you are searching for me not because you have seen such wonders, but because you ate the loaves and were satisfied.
Signs = Wonders = Miracles
6:27 Labour not for the food which perishes, but for that food which endures unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him has God the Father sealed.
27 Do not work for the food that does not last, work for the food that leads to eternal Life—that food which the Son of Man will give to you; for on Him the Father, God, has set HIS seal."
6:28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
28 "What are we to do," they asked, "to carry out the work of God?"
6:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that all of you believe on him whom he has sent.
29 "This," replied Jesus, "is the thing that God requires—that you should be believers in Him whom HE has sent."
6:30 They said therefore unto him, What sign show you then, that we may see, and believe you? what do you work?
30 "What sign then," they asked, "do you perform that we may see and believe in you? What miraculous work can you show us?
6:31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
31 Our fathers ate manna in the desert, as it is written, `HE GAVE THEM BREAD OUT OF HEAVEN TO EAT´" (PS. 78:24).
6:32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven.
32 "Truthfully again, I tell you," replied Jesus, "that Moses did not give you the bread from Heaven, but my Father has given you the true bread out of Heaven.
6:33 For the bread of God is he which comes down from heaven, and gives life unto the world.
33 For the bread of God is the One who comes down from Heaven and gives Life to the world."
6:34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.
34 "Sir," they said, "give us that bread forever."
6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that comes to me shall never hunger; and he that believes on me shall never thirst.
35 "I am the Bread of Life," replied Jesus, "anyone who comes to me shall never hunger; and anyone who believes in me shall never thirst.
6:36 But I said unto you, That all of you also have seen me, and believe not.
36 But it is as I have said: you have seen me and yet you do not believe.
6:37 All that the Father gives me shall come to me; and him that comes to me I will in no wise cast out.
37 Everyone whom the Father gives me will come to me, and those who come to me I will never cast aside.
6:38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
38 For I have descended from Heaven to earth not to do my own will, but to do the will of HIM who sent me.
6:39 And this is the Father's will which has sent me, that of all which he has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
39 And this is the will of HIM who sent me, that what HE has given me I should not lose it, but should raise it up on the last day.
6:40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which sees the Son, and believes on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
40 This is my Father's will, that everyone who witnesses the Son of God and believes in Him should have eternal Life, and I will raise that person to life on the last day."
6:41 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.
41 Now the Judeans began to murmur about Him because He said, `I am the bread which came down out of Heaven.´
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?
42 And they said, "Is this man not Joseph's son? Is he not Jesus, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, `I have descended from Heaven´?"
6:43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
43 "Do not murmur among yourselves," replied Jesus,
6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which has sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
44 "No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him (or her) to me; then I will raise that person to life on the last day.
6:45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that has heard, and has learned of the Father, comes unto me.
45 It is written in the Prophets, `AND ALL YOUR CHILDREN SHALL BE TAUGHT BY GOD´ (IS. 54:13). Everyone who hears the Father and learns from HIM will come to me.
6:46 Not that any man has seen the Father, save he which is of God, he has seen the Father.
46 No one has ever seen the Father, except the One who is from God, He has seen the Father.
6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes on me has everlasting life.
He Ο [ho, as pronoun] (3588) includ. fem.
47 In all truthfulness, I say to you, he (or she) that believes on me will have everlasting Life.
6:48 I am that bread of life.
48 I am the Bread of Life.
6:49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
49 Your fathers consumed the manna in the desert, and they died.
6:50 This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
50 Here is the bread that comes down out of Heaven that anyone may eat it and not die.
6:51 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.
51 I am the living bread come down out of Heaven. If anyone eats this bread, he (or she) shall live forever. Moreover the bread which I will give for the life of the world is my flesh."
6:52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
52 This led to an angry debate among the Judeans. "How can this man," they argued, "give us his flesh to eat?"
6:53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except all of you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, all of you have no life in you.
53 "Truthfully again, I tell you," said Jesus, "that unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves.
6:54 Whoso eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, has eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
54 Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal Life, and I will raise them up on the last day.
6:55 For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
55 For my flesh is truly the food, and my blood is truly the drink.
6:56 He that eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, dwells in me, and I in him.
56 The one who eats my flesh and drinks my blood belongs in me, and I belong in that person.
6:57 As the living Father has sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eats me, even he shall live by me.
57 As the living Father has sent me, and I live because of the Father, so anyone who partakes of me will live because of me.
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 shall live for ever.
58 This is the bread which came down out of Heaven; it is unlike that which your forefathers ate—for they ate and yet died. The person who eats this bread shall live forever."
6:59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.
59 Jesus gave this discourse in the synagogue while teaching at Capernaum.
6:60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is a hard saying; (o. logos) who can hear it?
60 A number of His disciples, when they heard these words, said, "This is hard to accept. Who can listen to such teaching?"
6:61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Does this offend you?
61 Knowing in His heart that His disciples were disturbed about this, Jesus asked them, "Does this cause you to stumble?
6:62 What and if all of you shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
62 Then what if you were to see the Son of Man ascending up where He was before?
6:63 It is the spirit that gives life; (o. pneuma) the flesh profits nothing: the words (o. rhema) that I speak unto you, they are spirit, (o. pneuma) and they are life.
63 The Spirit is what gives life. The flesh does not benefit anyone. The words I speak to you are Spirit and are Life.
6:64 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.
From beginning εξ αρχης (746)
64 But there are some among you who do not believe." For Jesus knew from the beginning who those were who did not believe, and who would betray Him.
6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
65 So He added, "That is why I told you that no follower can come to me unless it be granted by the Father."
6:66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
66 As a result, many of His followers departed, and no longer associated with Him.
6:67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will all of you also go away?
67 Then Jesus said to the twelve: "Will you go away also?"
6:68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? you have the words (o. rhema) of eternal life.
68 "Master," replied Simon Peter, "to whom shall we go? Your words tell us of eternal Life.
Peter: from Bethsaida of Galilee.
6:69 And we believe and are sure that you are that Christ, the Son of the living God.
69 And we have come to believe and know that you are Christ, the Holy One, Son of God."
Savior of the World
6:70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
70 "Have I not chosen you twelve?" said Jesus, "and even one of you is a devil."
6:71 He spoke of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.
71 He spoke of the son of Simon, Judas the Iscariot. He was one of the twelve who afterwards would betray Him.
