After this, Jesus crossed the Sea of Galilee (or Tiberias).
And a huge crowd was following Him because they saw the signs that He was performing on the sick.
So Jesus went up a mountain and sat down there with His disciples.
Now the Passover, a Jewish festival, was near.
Therefore, when Jesus looked up and noticed a huge crowd coming toward Him, He asked Philip, "Where will we buy bread so these people can eat?"
He asked this to test him, for He Himself knew what He was going to do.
