In John 6 we read about the feeding of the five thousand. After the miracle the people want to force Jesus to be their king. Before they can approach Him, he sends the disciples across the sea back to Capernaum,dismisses the crowd, and then He departs to the mountain to pray.
In the next section the crowd begins to question Jesus as to what sign He will give them to prove that He is the Messiah. His feeding the five thousand was incredible, but Moses had given their fathers manna from heaven. Jesus immediately gets their attention by declaring “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger…” (6.35). Jesus tells them He is the true manna from heaven, that they must believe in Him, and that this Bread is the only way to have eternal life.
Today we will be comparing Jesus, the Bread of life, with the manna given to the Israelites during their wilderness wanderings. Please join us at Living Oaks Baptist Church as we worship together in fellowship, song, and the study of God’s word. I hope to see you at 10:45 a.m.
