8 Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love.
9 In this way the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through him.
10 In this is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as expiation for our sins.
35 By now it was already late and his disciples approached him and said, “This is a deserted place and it is already very late.
36 Dismiss them so that they can go to the surrounding farms and villages and buy themselves something to eat.”
37 He said to them in reply, “Give them some food yourselves.” But they said to him, “Are we to buy two hundred days’ wages worth of food and give it to them to eat?”
38 He asked them, “How many loaves do you have? Go and see.” And when they had found out they said, “Five loaves and two fish.”
39 So he gave orders to have them sit down in groups on the green grass.
40 The people took their places in rows by hundreds and by fifties.
41 Then, taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he said the blessing, broke the loaves, and gave them to (his) disciples to set before the people; he also divided the two fish among them all.
42 They all ate and were satisfied.
43 And they picked up twelve wicker baskets full of fragments and what was left of the fish.
44 Those who ate (of the loaves) were five thousand men.
