Artist's Description

The account of the miracle in John 6 is followed later in the same chapter by the conversation Jesus has with the crowds who had followed him to Capernaum. The main motif in the passage (v.26-59) centres on Jesus saying, “I am that bread of life” (v.48). Though there is no previous food miracle in John other than Jesus turning the water into wine at the wedding in Cana, this section of Jesus’ teaching might allude to a much earlier food miracle, that of the manna that was provided as food to the children of Israel in the wilderness at the time of Moses. More strikingly this miracle echoes that of Elisha who fed 100 men with 20 loaves of bread in 2 Kings 4:42-44 saying “For this is what the LORD says: ’They will eat and have some left over.” The feeding of the multitude therefore may be seen as a demonstrative prelude to Jesus words, “I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger: and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.”
