Mt. 14:13; Mk. 6:30-32; Lk. 9:10; Jn. 6:1
About the time Jesus heard of John’s death, the apostles returned from the preaching mission that He had sent them on. They reported to Him about all the things that they had done and taught.
Since Jesus was tired and grief-stricken because of the death of John, His human side began to show. At His suggestion, they all went across the sea to a deserted place near Bethsaida to rest.
