6 ΚΑΤΑ ΙΩΑΝΝΗΝ Reference John
Μετὰ ταῦτα ἀπῆλθεν ὁ Ἰησοῦς πέραν τῆς θαλάσσης τῆς Γαλιλαίας τῆς τιβεριάδος.The Feeding of the Five Thousand Jn.6.1-14 | Mt.14.13-21 | Mk.6.30-44 | Lk.9.10-17After this Jesus went to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiber'i-as.
ἠκολούθει δὲ αὐτῷ ὀχλος πολύς, ὅτι ἐθεώρουν τὰ σημεῖα ἂ ἐποίει ἐπὶ τῶν ἀσθενούντων.  And a multitude followed him, because they saw the signs which he did on those who were diseased.
ἀνῆλθεν δὲ εἰς τὸ ὀρος Ἰησοῦς, καὶ ἐκεῖ ἐκάθητο μετὰ τῶν μαθητῶν αὐτοῦ.  Jesus went up on the mountain, and there sat down with his disciples.
ἦν δὲ ἐγγὺς τὸ πάσχα, ἡ ἑορτὴ τῶν Ἰουδαίων.  Now the Passover, the feast of the Jews, was at hand.
ἐπάρας οὖν τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς ὁ Ἰησοῦς καὶ θεασάμενος ὅτι πολὺς ὀχλος ἐρχεται πρὸς αὐτὸν λέγει πρὸς Φίλιππον, Πόθεν ἀγοράσωμεν ἀρτους ἵνα φάγωσιν οὗτοὶ; Lifting up his eyes, then, and seeing that a multitude was coming to him, Jesus said to Philip, "How are we to buy bread, so that these people may eat?"
τοῦτο δὲ ἐλεγεν πειράζων αὐτόν, αὐτὸς γὰρ ᾐδει τί ἐμελλεν ποιεῖν. This he said to test him, for he himself knew what he would do.
ἀπεκρίθη αὐτῷ ὁ Φίλιππος, Διακοσίων δηναρίων ἀρτοι οὐκ ἀρκοῦσιν αὐτοῖς ἵνα ἑκαστος βραχύ [τι] λάβῃ. Philip answered him, "Two hundred denarii would not buy enough bread for each of them to get a little."
λέγει αὐτῷ εἷς ἐκ τῶν μαθητῶν αὐτοῦ, Ἀνδρέας ὁ ἀδελφὸς Σίμωνος Πέτρου, One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to him,
Ἔστιν παιδάριον ὧδε ὃς ἐχει πέντε ἀρτους κριθίνους καὶ δύο ὀψάρια· ἀλλὰ ταῦτα τί ἐστιν εἰς τοσούτους; "There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what are they among so many?"
εἶπεν ὁ Ἰησοῦς, Ποιήσατε τοὺς ἀνθρώπους ἀναπεσεῖν. ἦν δὲ χόρτος πολὺς ἐν τῷ τόπῳ. ἀνέπεσαν οὖν οἱ ἀνδρες τὸν ἀριθμὸν ὡς πεντακισχίλιοι. Jesus said, "Make the people sit down." Now there was much grass in the place; so the men sat down, in number about five thousand.
ἐλαβεν οὖν τοὺς ἀρτους ὁ Ἰησοῦς καὶ εὐχαριστήσας διέδωκεν τοῖς ἀνακειμένοις, ὁμοίως καὶ ἐκ τῶν ὀψαρίων ὁσον ἠθελον.  Jesus then took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated; so also the fish, as much as they wanted.
ὡς δὲ ἐνεπλήσθησαν λέγει τοῖς μαθηταῖς αὐτοῦ, Συναγάγετε τὰ περισσεύσαντα κλάσματα, ἵνα μή τι ἀπόληται. And when they had eaten their fill, he told his disciples, "Gather up the fragments left over, that nothing may be lost."
συνήγαγον οὖν, καὶ ἐγέμισαν δώδεκα κοφίνους κλασμάτων ἐκ τῶν πέντε ἀρτων τῶν κριθίνων ἂ ἐπερίσσευσαν τοῖς βεβρωκόσιν.  So they gathered them up and filled twelve baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves, left by those who had eaten.
Οἱ οὖν ἄνθρωποι ἰδόντες ὃ ἐποίησεν σημεῖον ἐλεγον ὅτι Οὗτός ἐστιν ἀληθῶς ὁ προφήτης ὁ ἐρχόμενος εἰς τὸν κόσμον. When the people saw the sign which he had done, they said, "This is indeed the prophet who is to come into the world!"
