John 6
1After these things Yeshua [God is Salvation] went over the sea of Galil [circuit, district], which is [the sea] of Tiberias [from the river-god].
2And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.
3And Yeshua [God is Salvation] went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.
4And the Passover, a feast of the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah], was near.
5When Yeshua [God is Salvation] then lifted up [his] eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he says unto Philip [friend of horses], Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?
6And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.
7Philip [friend of horses] answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.
8One of his disciples, Andrew [of a man], Shim’on [he has heard] Kefa [pebble]’s brother, says unto him,
9There is a boy here, which has five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?
10And Yeshua [God is Salvation] said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.
11And Yeshua [God is Salvation] took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.
12When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
13Therefore they gathered [them] together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
14Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Yeshua [God is Salvation] did, said, This is of a tthat prophet that should come into the world.
15When Yeshua [God is Salvation] therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.
16And when even was [now] come, his disciples went down unto the sea,
17And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward K’far-Nachum [town of comfort]. And it was now dark, and Yeshua [God is Salvation] was not come to them.
18And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.
19So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Yeshua [God is Salvation] walking on the sea, and drawing near unto the ship: and they were afraid.
20But he says unto them, It is I; be not afraid.
21Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land to which they went.
22The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Yeshua [God is Salvation] went not with his disciples into the boat, but [that] his disciples were gone away alone;
23(However there came other boats from Tiberias [from the river-god] near unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord - Kurios had given thanks)
24When the people therefore saw that Yeshua [God is Salvation] was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to K’far-Nachum [town of comfort], seeking for Yeshua [God is Salvation].
25And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when came youi here?
26Yeshua [God is Salvation] answered them and said, Truly, truly, I say unto you, You2f seek me, not because you2f saw the miracles, but because you2f did eat of the loaves, and were filled.
27Labour not for the meat which perishes, but for that meat which endures unto everlasting life, which the Son of Man shall give unto you: for him has God-The Father the Father sealed.
28Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God-The Father?
29Yeshua [God is Salvation] answered and said unto them, This is the work of God-The Father, that you2f believe on him whom he has sent.
30They said therefore unto him, What sign shows youi then, that we may see, and believe youi? what do youi work?
31Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
32Then Yeshua [God is Salvation] said unto them, Truly, truly, I say unto you, Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven.
33For the bread of God-The Father is he which comes down from heaven, and gives life unto the world.
34Then said they unto him, Lord - Kurios, evermore give us this bread.
35And Yeshua [God is Salvation] said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that comes to me shall never hunger; and he that believes on me shall never thirst.
36But I said unto you, That you2f also have seen me, and believe not.
37All that the Father gives me shall come to me; and him that comes to me I will assuredly not (by no means) cast out.
38For I came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him that sent me.
39And this is the Father’s will which has sent me, that of all which he has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
40And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which sees the Son, and believes on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
41The Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah] then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.
42And they said, Is not this Yeshua [God is Salvation], the son of Yosef [God will add], whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he says, I came down from heaven?
43Yeshua [God is Salvation] therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
44No man can come to me, except the Father which has sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
45It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God-The Father. Every man therefore that has heard, and has learned of the Father, comes unto me.
46Not that any man has seen the Father, save he which is of God-The Father, he has seen the Father.
47Truly, truly, I say unto you, He that believes on me has everlasting life.
48I am that bread of life.
49Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
50This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
51I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
52The Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah] therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us [his] flesh to eat?
53Then Yeshua [God is Salvation] said unto them, Truly, truly, I say unto you, Except you2f eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink his blood, you2f have no life in you.
54Whoso eats my flesh, and drink my blood, has eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
55For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
56He that eats my flesh, and drink my blood, dwells in me, and I in him.
57As the living Father has sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eats me, even he shall live by me.
58This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eats of this bread shall live forever.
59These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in K’far-Nachum [town of comfort].
60Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard [this], said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
61When Yeshua [God is Salvation] knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Does this offend (make angry; make one stumble; violate) you?
62 [What] and if you2f shall see the Son of Man ascend up where he was before?
63It is the Spirit [Ruach] that quickens; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are Spirit [Ruach], and [they] are life.
64But there are some of you that believe not. For Yeshua [God is Salvation] knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
65And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
66From that [time] many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
67Then said Yeshua [God is Salvation] unto the twelve, Will you2f also go away?
68Then Shim’on [he has heard] Kefa [pebble] answered him, Lord - Kurios, to whom shall we go? youi have the words of eternal life.
69And we believe and are sure that youi are that Moshiach [Messiah], the Son of the living God-The Father.
70Yeshua [God is Salvation] answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
71He spoke of Y’hudah [praised] From K’riot [cities] [the son] of Shim’on [he has heard]: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.
