In our gospel for Sunday, John 6:1-21, Jesus feeds the five thousand and walks on water. Two powerful miracles in a row.
The 5000 saw a king who would give them food, with no effort on their part. Someone who would heal their sick and give them a better life here on earth, not bad things.
They did not realize that Jesus would set them free not only from sin but also from death. Where do we stand on this? How do we see Jesus?
