Commentary on the Gospel of
• John 6:24–35 Jesus feeds the crowds. People see the sign and express their belief that Jesus is a prophet, but they mistakenly want to make him king. If you want to do the work of God, believe in Jesus and accept his offer of food for eternal life.
• Did the Jews misunderstand the meaning of “messiah”? Did they want a political messiah? Is Jesus the presence of the divine in human form?
• Pray for the Jewish people, the first to hear God’s word, the people from whom Jesus and his earliest followers came.
• Feed the hungry people in your neighbourhood not only with food but the Word of God.
