When did you get here? (Jn 6:25-6:25)

“When they found him

On the other side

Of the sea,

They said to him.

‘Rabbi!

When did you get here?’”

καὶ εὑρόντες αὐτὸν πέραν τῆς θαλάσσης εἶπον αὐτῷ Ῥαββεί, πότε ὧδε γέγονας;

John uniquely indicated that when this crowd found Jesus (καὶ εὑρόντες αὐτὸν) on the other side of the sea (πέραν τῆς θαλάσσης), they called and said to him (εἶπον αὐτῷ), “Rabbi (Ῥαββεί)”.  They asked him when did he get there (πότε ὧδε γέγονας).  The term Rabbi was a respectful term for a teacher.  They wanted to know how Jesus got to Capernaum, since he was not in the boat when his disciples left there.  This whole problem of the whereabouts of Jesus was problematic in John.  Do you ever question why God does certain things?
