John 6:2 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

They saw his miracles which he did - John does not mention these miracles; but Matthew details them, Matthew 12:2-14:13. John seems more intent on supplying the deficiencies of the other evangelists than in writing a connected history himself.

Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.--JOHN 6:37.
