The nextday1the crowd that stood on the otherside of the seasaw that there was noothersmallboatthere, exceptone, and that Jesus2had not entered with His disciples into the boat, but that His disciples had goneawayalone.
There cameothersmallboats from 3Tiberiasnear to the placewhere they ate the bread after the 4Lord5had giventhanks.
24Sowhen the crowdsaw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they themselvesgot into the smallboats, and 6came to CapernaumseekingJesus.
25When they found Him on the otherside of the sea, they said to Him, "7Rabbi, when did You gethere?"
26Jesusanswered them and said, "Truly, truly, I say to you, you 8seek Me, not because you saw9signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled.27"Do not 10work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to 11eternallife, which12the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, God, 13has set His seal."28Therefore they said to Him, "What shall we do, so that we may work the works of God?"
29Jesusanswered and said to them, "This is 14the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He 15has sent."30So they said to Him, "16Whatthen do You do for a 17sign, so that we may see, and believe You? Whatwork do You perform?
"18Our fathersate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, '19HE GAVE THEM BREAD OUT OF HEAVEN TO EAT.' "
32Jesusthensaid to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the truebread out of heaven.33"For the bread of God is athat which 20comesdown out of heaven, and giveslife to the world."34Then they said to Him, "Lord, always21give us thisbread."
35Jesussaid to them, "22I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me 23will neverthirst.36"But 24I said to you that you have seen Me, and yet do not believe.37"25All that the Fathergives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.38"For 26I have comedown from heaven, 27not to do My ownwill, but 28the will of Him who 29sent Me.39"This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of 30all that He has given Me I 31losenothing, but 32raise it up on the lastday.40"For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who 33beholds the Son and 34believes in Him will haveeternallife, and I Myself will 35raise him up on the lastday."
4136Therefore the Jews were grumblingabout Him, because He said, "I am the bread that 37camedown out of heaven."42
They were saying, "38Is not thisJesus, the son of Joseph, whosefather and mother39we know? How does He nowsay, '40I have comedown out of heaven '?"
43Jesusanswered and said to them, "Do not grumbleamongyourselves.44"Noonecancome to Me unless the Father who sent Me 41draws him; and I will 42raise him up on the lastday.
