JOHN 6:1-13 – MEET THE INSIGHTFUL LEADER

MEETING JESUS IN THE GOSPEL OF JOHN #11

Have you felt overwhelmed and defeated lately? Imagine how the disciples felt when Jesus told them to feed between 15-20 thousand people (5 thousand men plus women and children)! Mark 6:37

This is the only miracle mentioned in all four Gospels besides the resurrection. John gives us “The rest of the story”, or the story behind the story. John’s account allows us to meet our Insightful Leader in a special way. He is still there to lead with insight.
