6:5 Then Jesus, when he looked up 1 and saw that a large crowd was coming to him, said to Philip, “Where can we buy bread so that these people may eat?” 6:6 (Now Jesus 2 said this to test him, for he knew what he was going to do.) 3 6:7 Philip replied, 4 “Two hundred silver coins worth 5 of bread would not be enough for them, for each one to get a little.”
12:21 So these approached Philip, 6 who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and requested, 7 “Sir, we would like to see Jesus.” 12:22 Philip went and told Andrew, and they both 8 went and told Jesus.
14:8 Philip said, 9 “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be content.” 10 14:9 Jesus replied, 11 “Have I been with you for so long, and you have not known 12 me, Philip? The person who has seen me has seen the Father! How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
[12:21] 6 sn These Greeks approached Philip, although it is not clear why they did so. Perhaps they identified with his Greek name (although a number of Jews from border areas had Hellenistic names at this period). By see it is clear they meant “speak with,” since anyone could “see” Jesus moving through the crowd. The author does not mention what they wanted to speak with Jesus about.
