The Gospel of John: Life in the Desert

John 6v1-24

Matt Deisen | March 27, 2022 | Duration: 34 minutes


During the Passover celebration, the Jewish nation remembers the Exodus: its release from slavery, the conquering of the Red Sea, and miraculous provision in the wilderness. As the nation celebrates, Jesus feeds thousands of people in the wilderness, shows Himself enthroned over the Sea of Galilee, and invokes the divine name “I AM” (from the Exodus). But the crowds who were present misunderstood, and just like the Israelites of the Exodus, the most confusing part of our faith is our time in the desert.
