The Gospel of John – Do not be driven by selfishness

This section of scripture uncovers the true motivation of the crowd following Jesus: selfishness. This passage is part of a long dialogue where Christ clarifies the meaning of His miracles.

The feeding of the 5 000 comes … Continue reading The Gospel of John – Supernatural Overflow
