By Justin Hopkins | Apr 28, 2019

The opening verses of John 6 provide an account of Jesus feeding 5,000 with two fish and five loaves.

As John 5 opens, an interesting scene is set before us. The pool of Bethesda is occasionally imbued with healing powers, but only for the first person to get into the water after the angel stirs the pool. There sits a man who has been lame for thirty-eight years. He explains that he has been…

The Man Believed
