Bible: John 6:22-27

6:22 The next day the crowd that remained on the other side of the lake 1  realized that only one small boat 2  had been there, and that Jesus had not boarded 3  it with his disciples, but that his disciples had gone away alone. 6:23 But some boats from Tiberias 4  came to shore 5  near the place where they had eaten the bread after the Lord had given thanks. 6  6:24 So when the crowd realized that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they got into the boats 7  and came to Capernaum 8  looking for Jesus.

Jesus’ Discourse About the Bread of Life

6:25 When they found him on the other side of the lake, 9  they said to him, “Rabbi, when did you get here? 10  6:26 Jesus replied, 11 I tell you the solemn truth, 12  you are looking for me not because you saw miraculous signs, but because you ate all the loaves of bread you wanted. 13  6:27 Do not work for the food that disappears, 14  but for the food that remains to eternal life – the food 15  which the Son of Man will give to you. For God the Father has put his seal of approval on him.” 16
