Week 11 - John 6 (2016)

After feeding of the five-thousand, Jesus walks on the water and speaks to the people saying "I am the bread of life". Jesus begins to get opposition from the religious leaders and his own followers.

The conversations you'll see from ch. 6 on are no longer between Jesus and individuals around him (Samaritan woman, Nicodemus, etc) but will start to be primarily with the Jewish religious leaders. And we need to start asking ourselves, why? Why did John compose his narrative like this? Why is he saying it here, and why in this way? What does it contribute to the story? How does this explain/reveal the Father and how does this help us grow in trusting Him?
