Discuss this passage:
kjv@John:6:16-21 > > RandyP :
Two miracles here. One commonly known. The other hidden. The disciples throughout the evening for all of their effort against the wind only traveled thirty furlongs at most from shore. Once Jesus got on board they were instantaneously were transported to their destination.
kjv@John:6:15 > > RandyP :
He perceived that they wanted to make Him king. He did not intend to be a king in they way and for the reason that they intended. Some today would think you'd take what you could get and work your way up from there; at least it is a start. He departed.
kjv@John:6:6 > > RandyP :
We must be prepared for proving moments like this ourselves. Don't expect to always get the task right either, these are teachable moments for those who remain teachable.
kjv@John:6:31 > > RandyP :
An amazing statement being that they had followed after Him from the other side because He had miraculously feed them bread and fish. Proper reasoning and rationale have little to do of why man does and says the things that he does.
kjv@John:6:39 > > RandyP :
Did you ever want to know what the will of God was? Read here!
kjv@John:6:44 > > RandyP :
So much for resourceful deduction and observation alone!
kjv@John:6:44 > > RandyP :
How does God draw him? By lifting the Son up!

The opportunity must be taken to confront the modern notion it is only by the interpretation and teaching of man that the bible continues to this day. Corrupt man, corrupt teaching. "To the defiled in heart nothing is pure". The equation changes dramatically if one considers God to have a hand in the teaching however. But, then it is countered that God only teaches certain purified men, the rest of us must depend on them. "To the defiled in heart nothing is pure". Even that would change if one considered that every man who hears the Father learns. But, yet then it is said no man really hears God. "To the defiled in heart nothing is pure". Well maybe it's them then, these critics that reside behind the constant shield of no no no, they are the ones to whom nothing is pure. The claim that they seem to be making is that God is not pure enough to make us pure. Perhaps they should listen to God once.
kjv@John:6:66 > > RandyP :
When Jesus gets to the real "meat" of His message it is a hard saying, many will walk with Him no more. This teaching truly gets to the heart of the matter, the dividing assunder of soul and spirit. Is it Jesus, who He is is, why He came, what He has to do for us or is it the Jesus we want Him to be, by our intellect and resource. Many walked with Him excited for who they might make Him to become, their own personal meal ticket. Little were they expecting Him in a large spiritual sense to become their meal.
