John 6:1-21

For the next several months we will be walking through the life and teachings of Jesus as told to us by someone who walked with Him, the Apostle John.

This week we started our journey through chapter 6. John tells the story of Jesus’ largest miracle – the feeding of the 5000. We spent some time talking through how Jesus used what was available to Him and then supernaturally makes more. There is a lot of ambiguity in exactly how this miracle occurred, but what is evident in this passage is that 1) His disciples were able to participate in the miracle (in the distribution of the food and the collection of the leftovers) and that 2) Jesus created more out of nothing. In verse 14, the crowd decides that Jesus is the prophet they had been waiting for and wants to make Him King. Knowing that it was not yet His time, He withdraws from them and disappears. We also looked at the next portion of this chapter where Jesus walks to the disciples on the water. In this portion we see the key that they were excited to see Him (once they figured out it was Him). They had obviously spent enough time with Him to not be afraid of His power – something we could learn from in our culture today.

If you would like to begin a conversation about following Jesus or would like to talk more about how your story and the Gospel connect, we would love to hear from you. If you have questions, please feel free to ask them here.
