and that believing you may have life in His name.

    Jesus Feeds the Multitudes (John 6:1-13)

    What did Jesus say they needed to be seeking instead?

      Why do we seek Him today?

    What is important about believing?

  14. The crowd had witnessed the feeding of the 5000. Why did they continue to ask for a sign and what sort of sign did they demand?

  15. When asked for a sign so that they might believe Jesus was from heaven, how does Jesus respond?

  16. Jesus claims to be the Bread that came down from Heaven. How does Jesus compare to Manna?

  24.   People often came to Jesus because they wanted something from Him. Jesus saw their greater need and gave appropriately. How can we move beyond just seeking "loaves and fishes" and move on to more spiritual food?

  25.   In verse 63, Jesus said His words are spirit and life. How do words give life? See also Ezekiel 2:8-10, 3:1-4 and Revelation 10:9.
