Some time after this, Jesus crossed to the far shore of the Sea of Galilee (that is, the Sea of Tiberias),
and a great crowd of people followed him because they saw the signs1 he had performed by healing the sick.
Then Jesus went up on a mountainside2 and sat down with his disciples.
The Jewish Passover Festival3 was near.
When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip,4 "Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?"
He asked this only to test him, for he already had in mind what he was going to do.
