After this, Jesus went across Lake Galilee (or, Lake Tiberias, as it is also called).
A large crowd followed him, because they had seen his miracles of healing the sick.
Jesus went up a hill and sat down with his disciples.
The time for the Passover Festival was near.
Jesus looked around and saw that a large crowd was coming to him, so he asked Philip, "Where can we buy enough food to feed all these people?
(He said this to test Philip; actually he already knew what he would do.)
