Power and Purpose - John 6:1-15


Date:  05/18/14
Speaker:  Matt McCullough
Title:  Power and Purpose
Scripture:  John 6:1-15

Description:  Like Matthew, Mark and Luke, John gives us the story of the feeding of the 5,000, where Jesus turns a glorified snack into a full meal for a massive crowd of hungry people. It’s a story meant to demonstrate that Jesus has power that isn’t limited by rigid laws of nature, that in him we catch a glimpse of a new world breaking into the somber limitations of this old one. But John also means this story to provide a sign of Jesus’s purpose. He will use his power not necessarily to give us what we want but to give us what we need above all else.
