The passover, A feast of the Jews (John 6:4)

John's use of the descriptive phrase "a feast of the Jews" evidences the broad scope of the apostle's thought. Had he been writing exclusively or even primarily for Jews, he would surely have referred, as do other Biblical writers, to "the passover"—the most famous national festival of the Hebrew people. But also for the benefit of Gentile (non-Jewish) readers, he perhaps called it "a feast of the Jews" to distinguish it from the Samaritan Passover, celebrated on Mount Gerizim.
