Study 11 From the Book of John is: John 6:1-21
Taking this fourth ‘sign’ in the context of verses 1-13, note what it reveals concerning (a) why the people were attracted to Jesus; (b) His own attitude to the people; (c) His testing of His disciples faith; (d) His use of their co-operation; (e) the source of the answer to men’s need. What over all lesson was this miracle intended to convey?
Verse 15. Why did not Jesus wish to be made king by these people? What may we learn from His withdrawing from the place of success to be by Himself? Cf. Lk. 5:15, 16.
Verse 7. A denarius may be valued as a day’s wage for a labourer; cf. Mt. 20:2
verse 14. ‘The prophet who is to come’: cf. Dt. 18: 15; Mt. 11: 3; He is here identified by the people with the Messiah, as verse 15 shows.
