John 6:5-9

Context
6:5 Then Jesus, when he looked up 1  and saw that a large crowd was coming to him, said to Philip, “Where can we buy bread so that these people may eat?” 6:6 (Now Jesus 2  said this to test him, for he knew what he was going to do.) 3  6:7 Philip replied, 4  “Two hundred silver coins worth 5  of bread would not be enough for them, for each one to get a little.” 6:8 One of Jesus’ disciples, 6  Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to him, 6:9 “Here is a boy who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what good 7  are these for so many people?”

1 tn Grk “when he lifted up his eyes” (an idiom).

2 tn Grk “he”; the referent (Jesus) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

3 sn This is a parenthetical note by the author.

4 tn Grk “Philip answered him.”

5 tn Grk “two hundred denarii.” The denarius was a silver coin worth about a day’s wage for a laborer; this would be an amount worth about eight months’ pay.

7 tn Grk “but what are these”; the word “good” is not in the Greek text, but is implied.
