Passage: John 6:1-13 (RSV)

John 6

1After this Jesus went to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiber'i-as.
2And a multitude followed him, because they saw the signs which he did on those who were diseased.
3Jesus went up on the mountain, and there sat down with his disciples.
4Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was at hand.
5Lifting up his eyes, then, and seeing that a multitude was coming to him, Jesus said to Philip, "How are we to buy bread, so that these people may eat?"
6This he said to test him, for he himself knew what he would do.
7Philip answered him, "Two hundred denarii would not buy enough bread for each of them to get a little."
8One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to him,
9"There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what are they among so many?"
10Jesus said, "Make the people sit down." Now there was much grass in the place; so the men sat down, in number about five thousand.
11Jesus then took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated; so also the fish, as much as they wanted.
12And when they had eaten their fill, he told his disciples, "Gather up the fragments left over, that nothing may be lost."
13So they gathered them up and filled twelve baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves, left by those who had eaten.
