6 After these things Jesus went away to the other side of the Sea of Galilee (orTiberias).2 A large crowd was following Him, because they were watching the [a]signs which He was performing on those who were sick.3 But Jesus went up on the mountain, and there He sat with His disciples.4 Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was near.5 So Jesus, after raising His eyes and seeing that a large crowd was coming to Him, *said to Philip, “Where are we to buy bread so that these people may eat?”6 But He was saying this only to test him, for He Himself knew what He intended to do.7 Philip answered Him, “Two hundred [b]denarii worth of bread is not enough for them, for each to receive just a little!”8 One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, *said to Him,9 “There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what are these for so many people?”10 Jesus said, “Have the people recline to eat.” Now there was plenty of grass in the place. So the men reclined, about [c]five thousand in number.11 Jesus then took the loaves, and after giving thanks He distributed them to those who were reclining; likewise also of the fish, as much as they wanted.12 And when they had eaten their fill, He *said to His disciples, “Gather up the leftover pieces so that nothing will be lost.”13 So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with pieces from the five barley loaves which were left over by those who had eaten.14 Therefore when the people saw the [d]sign which He had performed, they said, “This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world.”
