Jesus soon saw a huge crowd of people coming to look for him. Turning to Philip, he asked, "Where can we buy bread to feed all these people?"
Philip replied, "Even if we worked for months, we wouldn't have enough money to feed them!"
Others said, "He is the Messiah." Still others said, "But he can't be! Will the Messiah come from Galilee?
