6:1 After these things, Yeshua went away to the other side of the sea of Galilee, which is also called the Sea of Tiberias. 2 A large crowd followed him, because they saw the signs which he did on those who were sick. 3 Yeshua went up into the mountain, and he sat there with his talmidim. 4 Now the Passover, the Jewish festival, was near. 5 Yeshua therefore lifting up his eyes, and seeing that a large crowd was coming to him, said to Philip, “Where are we to buy bread, that these may eat?” 6 This he said to test him, for he himself knew what he would do.
7 Philip answered him, “Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that everyone of them may receive a little.”
8 One of his talmidim, 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 among so many?”
10 Yeshua said, “Have the people sit down.” Now there was much grass in that place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. 11 Yeshua took the loaves; and having given thanks, he distributed to the talmidim, and the talmidim to those who were sitting down; likewise also of the fish as much as they desired. 12 When they were filled, he said to his talmidim, “Gather up the broken pieces which are left over, that nothing be lost.” 13 So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with broken pieces from the five barley loaves, which were left over by those who had eaten. 14 When therefore the people saw the sign which he did, they said, “This is truly the Prophet who comes into the world.” 15 Yeshua therefore, perceiving that they were about to come and take him by force, to make him king, withdrew again to the mountain by himself.
16 When evening came, his talmidim went down to the sea, 17 and they entered into the boat, and were going over the sea to Capernaum. It was now dark, and Yeshua had not come to them. 18 The sea was tossed by a great wind blowing. 19 When therefore they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Yeshua walking on the sea, and drawing near to the boat; and they were afraid. 20 But he said to them, “It is I. Do not be afraid.” 21 They were willing therefore to receive him into the boat. Immediately the boat was at the land where they were going.
22 On the next day, the crowd that stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other boat there, except one, and that Yeshua had not entered with his talmidim into the boat, but his talmidim had gone away alone. 23 Other boats from Tiberias came near to the place where they ate the bread after the Lord had given thanks. 24 When the crowd therefore saw that Yeshua was not there, nor his talmidim, they themselves got into the boats, and came to Capernaum, seeking Yeshua. 25 When they found him on the other side of the sea, they asked him, “Rabbi, when did you come here?”
26 Yeshua answered them, “Truly, truly, I tell you, you seek me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate of the loaves, and were filled. 27 Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which remains to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For God the Father has sealed him.”
28 They said therefore to him, “What must we do, that we may work the works of God?”
29 Yeshua answered them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.”
30 They said therefore to him, “What then do you do for a sign, that we may see, and believe you? What work do you do? 31 Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness. As it is written, ‘He gave them bread out of heaven to eat.'”
32 Yeshua therefore said to them, “Truly, truly, I tell you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread out of heaven, but my Father gives you the true bread out of heaven. 33 For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.”
34 They said therefore to him, “Lord, always give us this bread.”
35 Yeshua said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will not be hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. 36 But I told you that you have seen me, and yet you do not believe. 37 All those whom the Father gives me will come to me. Him who comes to me I will in no way throw out. 38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me. 39 This is the will of him who sent me, that of all he has given to me I should lose nothing, but should raise him up at the last day. 40 This is the will of my Father, that everyone who sees the Son, and believes in him, should have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”
41 The Jewish people therefore murmured concerning him, because he said, “I am the bread which came down out of heaven.” 42 They said, “Is not this Yeshua, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How then does he say, ‘I have come down out of heaven?'”
43 Therefore Yeshua answered them, “Do not murmur among yourselves. 44 No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up in the last day. 45 It is written in the Prophets, ‘And they will all be taught by God.’ Therefore everyone who hears and learns from the Father comes to me. 46 Not that anyone has seen the Father, except he who is from God. He has seen the Father. 47 Truly, truly, I tell you, he who believes has everlasting life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. 50 This is the bread which comes down out of heaven, that anyone may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down out of heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread which I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.”
52 The Judeans therefore argued with one another, saying, “How can this one give us flesh to eat?”
53 Yeshua therefore said to them, “Truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life in yourselves. 54 He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has everlasting life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 56 He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood lives in me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father; so he who feeds on me, he will also live because of me. 58 This is the bread which came down out of heaven—not as the fathers ate, and died. He who eats this bread will live forever.” 59 He said these things in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.
60 Therefore many of his talmidim, when they heard this, said, “This is a hard saying. Who can listen to it?”
61 But Yeshua knowing in himself that his talmidim murmured at this, said to them, “Does this cause you to stumble? 62 Then what if you would see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before? 63 It is the spirit who gives life. The flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and are life. 64 But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Yeshua knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who it was who would betray him. 65 He said, “For this cause have I said to you that no one can come to me, unless it is given to him by the Father.”
66 At this, many of his talmidim went back, and walked no more with him. 67 Yeshua said therefore to the twelve, “You do not also want to go away, do you?”
68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words of everlasting life. 69 We have come to believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.”
70 Yeshua answered them, “Did I not choose you, the twelve, and one of you is a devil?” 71 Now he spoke of Judah, the son of Simon Iscariot, for it was he who would betray him, being one of the twelve.
7:1 After these things, Yeshua was walking in Galilee, for he would not walk in Judea, because the Jewish leaders sought to kill him. 2 Now the Jewish festival, the Feast of Tabernacles, was near. 3 So his brothers said to him, “Depart from here, and go into Judea, that your talmidim also may see your works that you are doing. 4 For no one does anything in secret when he himself seeks to be known openly. If you do these things, show yourself to the world.” 5 For even his brothers did not believe in him.
6 Yeshua therefore said to them, “My time has not yet come, but your time is always ready. 7 The world cannot hate you, but it hates me, because I testify about it, that its works are evil. 8 You go up to the feast. I am not yet going up to this feast, because my time is not yet fulfilled.”
9 After he had said this, he stayed in Galilee. 10 But when his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he also went up, not publicly, but as it were in secret. 11 The Jewish leaders therefore sought him at the feast, and said, “Where is he?” 12 There was much murmuring among the crowds concerning him. Some said, “He is a good man.” Others said, “Not so, but he leads the crowd astray.” 13 Yet no one spoke openly of him for fear of the Jewish leaders. 14 But when it was now the midst of the feast, Yeshua went up into the temple and taught. 15 Then the Jewish leaders were astonished, saying, “How does this man know such writings, having never been educated?”
16 Yeshua therefore answered them, “My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me. 17 If anyone desires to do his will, he will know about the teaching, whether it is from God, or if I am speaking from myself. 18 He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. 19 Did not Moses give you the Law, and yet none of you keeps the Law? Why do you seek to kill me?”
20 The crowd answered, “You have a demon. Who seeks to kill you?”
21 Yeshua answered them, “I did one work, and you are all amazed. 22 Moses has given you circumcision (not that it is of Moses, but of the fathers), and on the Sabbath you circumcise a boy. 23 If a boy receives circumcision on the Sabbath, that the Law of Moses may not be broken, are you angry with me, because I made a man completely healthy on the Sabbath? 24 Do not judge according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment.”
25 Therefore some of them of Jerusalem said, “Is not this he whom they seek to kill? 26 Look, he speaks openly, and they say nothing to him. Can it be that the rulers indeed know that this is the Messiah? 27 However we know where this man comes from, but when the Messiah comes, no one will know where he comes from.”
28 Yeshua therefore called out in the temple, teaching and saying, “You both know me, and know where I am from. I have not come of myself, but he who sent me is true, whom you do not know. 29 I know him, because I am from him, and he sent me.”
30 They sought therefore to take him; but no one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come. 31 But many in the crowd believed in him. They said, “When the Messiah comes, he won’t do more signs than those which this man has done, will he?” 32 The Pharisees heard the crowd murmuring these things concerning him, and the chief cohanim and the Pharisees sent officers to arrest him.
33 Then Yeshua said, “I will be with you a little while longer, then I go to him who sent me. 34 You will seek me, and won’t find me; and where I am, you cannot come.”
35 The Jewish leaders therefore said among themselves, “Where will this man go that we won’t find him? Will he go to the Diaspora among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks? 36 What is this word that he said, ‘You will seek me, and won’t find me; and where I am, you cannot come’?”
37 Now on the last and greatest day of the feast, Yeshua stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. 38 He who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, from within him will flow rivers of living water.” 39 But he said this about the Spirit, which those believing in him were to receive. For the Spirit was not yet given, because Yeshua was not yet glorified.
40 Some of the crowd therefore, when they heard these words, said, “This is truly the Prophet.” 41 Others said, “This is the Messiah.” But some said, “What, does the Messiah come out of Galilee? 42 Hasn’t the Scripture said that the Messiah comes of the offspring of David, and from Bethlehem, the village where David was?” 43 So there arose a division in the crowd because of him. 44 Some of them would have arrested him, but no one laid hands on him. 45 The officers therefore came to the chief cohanim and Pharisees, and they said to them, “Why did you not bring him?”
46 The officers answered, “No one ever spoke like this man.”
47 The Pharisees therefore answered them, “You are not also led astray, are you? 48 Have any of the rulers believed in him, or of the Pharisees? 49 But this crowd that does not know the Law is accursed.”
50 Nicodemus (he who came to him before, being one of them) said to them, 51 “Does our Law judge a man, unless it first hears from him personally and knows what he does?”
52 They answered him, “Are you also from Galilee? Search, and see that no prophet comes from Galilee.” 53 Then everyone went to his own house, 8:1 but Yeshua went to the Mount of Olives.
2 Now very early in the morning, he came again into the temple, and all the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them. 3 Then the scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman taken in adultery, and having set her in the midst, 4 they said to him, “Teacher, we found this woman in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now in the Law, Moses commanded us to stone such. So what do you say?” 6 Now they said this to test him, that they might have something to accuse him of. But Yeshua stooped down, and wrote on the ground with his finger. 7 But when they continued asking him, he looked up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw the first stone at her.” 8 Again he stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground.
9 But when they heard it, they went out one by one, beginning from the oldest, even to the last, and he was left alone with the woman where she was, in the middle. 10 Then Yeshua, standing up, said to her, “Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?”
11 And she said, “No one, Lord.” And Yeshua said, “Neither do I condemn you. Go, and sin no more.”
