John 6:10-11

Context

6:10 Jesus said, “Have 1  the people sit down.” (Now there was a lot of grass in that place.) 2  So the men 3  sat down, about five thousand in number. 6:11 Then Jesus took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed the bread to those who were seated. He then did the same with the fish, 4  as much as they wanted.

1 tn Grk “Make.”

2 sn This is a parenthetical note by the author (suggesting an eyewitness recollection).

3 tn Here “men” has been used in the translation because the following number, 5,000, probably included only adult males (see the parallel in Matt 14:21).

4 tn Grk “likewise also (he distributed) from the fish.”
