Sermon Outline

1. Illustration – mission trip with kids

• Expectations, first impressions

• Jason and the schizophrenic answers which dodged questions and answered indirectly


2. Problem with text

• Jesus and indirect answers

• “Rabbi, when did you come here?” – “you are looking for me because you ate the bread I gave you”

• “What must we do to perform the works of God?” – “This is the work of God, that you believe in the one whom he has sent”

• “What sign are you going to give us, then? Moses sent bread.” – Moses didn’t send bread, God did”


3. Problem 2 with text

• Jesus dismisses the crowd as only after his food

• Crowds were poor – unemployment was worsening, taxes were rising beyond control, and leaders were oppressive – so much so that the people revolted against Rome 40 years later


4. Problem 3 with text

• Jesus as the bread of life – what does this say to the hungry?

• Jason, the homeless guy and “bread of life”


5. Illustration – Charles the director

• Pastors vs. Ministers


6. Jesus and the crowd

• Knew he couldn’t feed them forever – needed to teach them to help each other

• Had already fed them once – first gave them earthly food – then gave them heavenly food


7. Communion

• Dual meaning – we eat the earthly bread and yet we receive heavenly nourishment
