Passage: John 6:33-59 Speaker: Pastor Lukus Counterman Series: John - That You May Believe

Length: 54 mins 37 secs Plays: 1819

Speaker: Lukus Counterman - John 6 beautifully illustrates a very typical pattern in the Fourth Gospel. After a significant event is narrated, discussion with either the Jews or the would-be disciples follows. Their misunderstanding opens the way for Jesus to enter a major discourse that reveals more of his true nature. The events of feeding of the five thousand and walking on the water are followed by a discussion with the \"crowd.\" Their failure to understand Jesus offers him the opportunity (and necessity) of expounding further about his identity as the Bread of Life. This is a further development of Jesus the giver of Life that had been the theme in John 4:43-5:47. - Roger Hahn
