CLV(i) 1 After these things Jesus came away to the other side of the sea of Galilee of Tiberias. 2 Now there followed Him a vast throng, for they beheld the signs which He did on the infirm." 3 Now Jesus came up into the mountain, and there He sat with His disciples." 4 Now near was the Passover, the festival of the Jews." 5 Jesus, then, lifting up His eyes and gazing - for a vast throng is coming toward Him - is saying to Philip, "Whence should we be buying bread that these may be eating? 6 Now this He said to try him, for He was aware what He was about to be doing." 7 Then Philip answered Him, "Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that each may get a bit." 8 One of His disciples, Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, is saying to Him, 9 There is a lad here who has five cakes of barley bread and two food fishes. But what are these for so many? 10 Yet Jesus said, "Make the people lean back.Now there was much grass in the place. The people, then, lean back, the men in number about five thousand." 11 Jesus, then, took the bread, and, giving thanks, He distributes it to those lying back. Likewise also of the food fish, as much as they wanted." 12 Now as they are filled, He is saying to His disciples, "Gather the superfluous fragments, lest some should perish." 13 They gathered them, then, and cram twelve panniers with fragments of the five cakes of barley bread which are superfluous for those who were fed." 14 The men, then, perceiving the sign which Jesus does, said that "This truly is the Prophet Who is coming into the world!" 15 Jesus, then, knowing that they are about to come and snatch Him, that they should be making Him king, retires again into the mountain by Himself alone." 16 Now as it became evening, His disciples descended to the sea." 17 And, stepping into the ship, they came to the other side of the sea to Capernaum. And darkness had already come, and Jesus had not as yet come to them." 18 Besides, the sea was roused by the blowing of a great wind." 19 Having, then, rowed about twenty-five or thirty stadia, they are beholding Jesus walking on the sea and coming to be near the ship, and they were afraid." 20 He is saying to them, "It is I. Do not fear!" 21 They wanted, then, to take Him into the ship. And immediately the ship came to be at the land to which they went." 22 On the morrow the throng, standing on the other side of the sea, perceived that no other boat was there except one, and that Jesus did not enter the ship together with His disciples, but His disciples came away alone." 23 But boats out of Tiberias came near the place where they ate the bread for which the Lord gave thanks. 24 When, then, the throng perceived that Jesus is not there, neither His disciples, they stepped into the boats and came to Capernaum, seeking Jesus." 25 And, finding Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, "Rabbi, when camest Thou to be here? 26 Jesus answered them and said, "Verily, verily, I am saying to you, You are seeking Me, not that you perceived signs, but that you ate of the bread and are satisfied. " 27 Do not work for the food which is perishing, but for the food which is remaining for life eonian, which the Son of Mankind will be giving to you, for this One God, the Father, seals." 28 They said, then, to Him, "What may we be doing that we may be working the works of God? 29 Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you may be believing in that One Whom He commissions." 30 They said, then, to Him, "What sign, then, are you doing, that we may be perceiving and should be believing you? What are you working? 31 Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, according as it is written, Bread out of heaven He gives them to eat." 32 Jesus, then, said to them, "Verily, verily, I am saying to you, not Moses has given you the bread out of heaven, 33 but My Father is giving you Bread out of heaven, the true, for the Bread of God is He Who is descending out of heaven and giving life to the world." 34 They said, then, to Him, "Lord! always be giving us this Bread!" 35 Jesus, then, said to them, "I am the Bread of life. He who is coming to Me should under no circumstances be hungering, and he who is believing in Me will under no circumstances ever be thirsting." 36 But I said to you that you have also seen Me and you are not believing Me. 37 All that which the Father is giving to Me shall be arriving to Me, and he who is coming to Me I should under no circumstances be casting out, 38 for I have descended from heaven, not that I should be doing My will, but the will of Him Who sends Me." 39 Now this is the will of Him Who sends Me, that all which He has given to Me, of it I should be losing nothing, but I shall be raising it in the last day." 40 For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who is beholding the Son and believing in Him may have life eonian, and I shall be raising him in the last day." 41 The Jews, then, murmured concerning Him, that He said, "I am the Bread which descends out of heaven." 42 And they said, "Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, with whose father and mother we are acquainted? How, then, is he saying that 'Out of heaven have I descended'? 43 Jesus, then, answered and said to them, "Do not murmur with one another." 44 No one can come to Me if ever the Father Who sends Me should not be drawing him. And I shall be raising him in the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets: And they shall all be taught of God. Everyone, then, who hears from the Father and is learning the truth, is coming to Me." 46 Not that the Father has been seen by anyone, except by the One Who is from God. This One has seen the Father." 47 Verily, verily, I am saying to you that he who is believing in Me has life eonian." 48 I am the Bread of life. 49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died." 50 This is the Bread which is descending out of heaven that anyone may be eating of it and may not be dying. 51 I am the living Bread which descends out of heaven. If anyone should be eating of this Bread, he shall be living for the eon. Now the Bread also, which I shall be giving for the sake of the life of the world, is My flesh." 52 The Jews, then, fought with one another, saying, "How then can this one give us his flesh to eat? 53 Jesus, then, said to them, "Verily, verily, I am saying to you, If you should not be eating the flesh of the Son of Mankind and drinking His blood, you have no eonian life in yourselves." 54 He who is masticating My flesh and drinking My blood has life eonian, and I shall be raising him in the last day, 55 for My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink." 56 He who is masticating My flesh and drinking My blood is remaining in Me, and I in him." 57 According as the living Father commissions Me, I, also, am living because of the Father. And he who is masticating Me, he also will be living because of Me." 58 This is the Bread which descends out of heaven. Not according as the fathers ate and died; he who is masticating this Bread shall be living for the eon." 59 These things He said, teaching in a synagogue in Capernaum." 60 Many of His disciples, then, hearing it, said, "Hard is this saying! Who can hear it? 61 Now Jesus, being aware in Himself that His disciples are murmuring concerning this, said to them, "This is snaring you? 62 If, then, you should be beholding the Son of Mankind ascending where He was formerly - ? 63 The Spirit is that which is vivifying. The flesh is not benefiting anything. The declarations which I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. 64 But there are some of you who are not believing.For Jesus had perceived from the beginning who those are who are not believing, and who it is that gives Him up." 65 And He said, "Therefore have I declared to you that no one can be coming to Me if it should not be given him of the Father." 66 At this, then, many of His disciples came away, dropping behind, and walked no longer with Him." 67 Jesus, then, said to the twelve, "Not you also are wanting to go away!" 68 Simon Peter answered Him, "Lord, to whom shall we come away? Declarations of life eonian hast Thou!" 69 And we believe and know that Thou art the Holy One of God." 70 Jesus answered and said to them, "Do not I choose you, the twelve, and one of you is an adversary? 71 Now He said it of Judas, son of Simon Iscariot, for this man was about to give Him up, being one of the twelve."
