John 6:3-14 NAS
Then Jesus went up on the
mountain, and there He sat down with His disciples. Now the
Passover, the feast of the Jews, was near. Therefore Jesus, lifting
up His eyes and seeing that a large crowd was coming to him, said to
are we to buy bread, so that these may eat?"
This He was saying to test him, for He Himself knew what He was intending
to do. Phillip answered Him, "Two hundred denarii's worth of
bread is not sufficient for them, for everyone to receive a
little." One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to
Him, "There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two fish,
but what are these for so many people?" Jesus said, "Have
the people sit down."
Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in
number about five thousand. Jesus then took the loaves, and having
given thanks, He distributed to those who were seated; likewise also the
fish as much as they wanted. When they were filled, He said to His
up the leftover fragments so that nothing will be lost."
So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with fragments from
five barley loaves which were left over by those who had eaten.
Therefore when the people saw the sign which He had performed, they said,
"This truly is the Prophet who is come into the world."
