The Bread of Life

Chapter 30

People followed Jesus to Capernaum

The day after the five thousand people had been fed with the five loaves of bread and two small fish, they tried to find Jesus. They went in boats and followed Him to Capernaum. John 6:22, 24

They wanted Him to feed them again

Jesus knew that they had come only because they wanted Him to feed them again. John 6:26

He is the bread of life

He taught them that bread would keep them alive for a while, but that there was another kind of bread that they should seek—the bread of eternal life. He told them that He is that bread. John 6:27, 30–35

We must follow Him

He taught them that He would sacrifice His life for them. If they would follow Him and believe in Him, the Bread of Life, they would gain everlasting life. John 6:47–51
