Trivia:

Jesus feeds five thousand men

1 After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.

Jesus crossed the Sea of Galilee, which is also called the Sea of Tiberias.

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

And a great crowd followed him because of the miracles he did on sick people.

3 And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.

Jesus went up on a mountain with his disciples.

4 And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.

The feast of passover was approaching.

5 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?

Jesus said to Philip,

Where can we buy bread for all these people?

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

He said this to test Philip, since he knew what he would do.

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

Philip said,

We don't have enough money

to buy bread for so many people.

8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him,

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

Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to Jesus,

There's a boy here with five barley loaves and two small fishes. But what good is that for so many people?

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.

Jesus said, "Tell them to sit down."

So the men sat down. There were about 5000 of them.

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.

Jesus took the loaves and fishes, gave thanks,

and handed them to the disciples to distribute.

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

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.

After everyone had eaten as much as they wanted,

they gathered twelve baskets of leftovers.

14 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.

Those who saw all this, said,

This is a prophet.

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.

Jesus thought they would force him to be king,

so he went up on a mountain by himself.

Jesus walks on water
6:16-21, Cf. Mt 14:22-27, Mk 6:45-52

16 And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,

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.

That evening, Jesus's disciples went by boat toward Capernaum.

18 And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.

After dark, a strong wind blew and the sea became rough.

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.

When they'd rowed about five kilometers,

they saw Jesus walking on the water, and they were afraid.

20 But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.

But Jesus said to them,

It's me. Don't be afraid.

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

Then they took him into the boat.

And immediately the boat arrived where they were going.

Eat my flesh and drink my blood
(or you won't have life in you)
6:22-71

22 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;

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

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

The next day, people came to Capernaum looking for Jesus.

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

When they found him, they said to him,

When did you get here?

26 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.

Jesus said to them,

You're looking for me not because you saw the miracles,

but because you ate all the bread that you wanted.

27 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.

Don't work for meat that spoils,

but for meat that lasts forever,

which the Son of man will give you.

28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?

They said,

How should we do the work of God?

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

Jesus said,

This is the work of God:

believe in the one whom he has sent.

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

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

They said,

What sign can you show us?

What work do you do?

Our fathers ate manna in the desert.

32 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.

33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.

Jesus said,

The bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.

34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.

They said,

Lord, give us that bread.

35 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.

36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.

Jesus said,

I'm the bread of life.

Those who come to me will never be hungry.

Those who believe in me will never thirst.

But even though you've seen me, you don't believe.

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

Whoever the Father gives me will come to me.

I won't throw them out.

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

I came down from heaven, not to do my will, but my father's.

39 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.

It's the father's will that I lose nothing that he has given me.

40 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.

Those who see the Son and believe in him will live forever,

and I'll raise them up on the last day.

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

The Jews murmured at him, because he said,

I'm the bread that comes down from heaven.

42 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?

They said,

Isn't this Jesus, the son of Joseph?

Why does he say he's come down from heaven?

43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.

Jesus said to them,

Don't murmur.

44 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.

45 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.

No one comes to me unless the father sent them.

And I'll raise them up on the last day.

46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.

No one has seen the father, [1]

except the one who is of God.

47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

Whoever believes in me will live forever.

48 I am that bread of life.

I'm the bread of life.

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

Your fathers ate manna in the wilderness and are dead.

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

If you eat this bread, you won't die.

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.

I'm the living bread that comes down from heaven.

If you eat this bread, you'll live forever.

This bread is my flesh, which I give for the life of the world.

52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?

The Jews said,

How can this man give us his flesh to eat?

53 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.

Jesus said,

You must eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, or you won't have life in you. [2]

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

Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood will live forever.

55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

Because my flesh and blood are food and drink.

56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood

live in me and I in them.

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

58 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.

59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.

Those who eat me, live by me.

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

When the disciples heard this, they said,

This is a hard saying.

Who can believe it?

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

62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?

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

Jesus knew what they were thinking. So he said,

Does this offend you?

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.

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.

Some of you don't believe.

(Jesus knew from the beginning who would believe [3]

and who would betray him.)

66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.

From that time on, many disciples left Jesus.

67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?

Jesus said to the twelve,

Will you leave me too?

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

Peter said,

Lord, where would we go?

You have the words of eternal life.

69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

We believe you are Christ, the Son of God.

70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?

Jesus said,

Haven't I chosen you?

And yet one of you is a devil. [4]

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

(He was talking about Judas Iscariot who would betray him.)
