John 4:33

Therefore said the disciples one to another, has any man brought him anything to eat?

AD 1637
Then said His disciples, &c. The Apostles did not understand that Christ was speaking of spiritual food. Wherefore S. Augustine says, "What wonder was it that if the woman did not understand about the water? behold, the disciples do not understand the food."

Cyril of Alexandria

AD 444
The disciples not yet understanding the discourse which was obscure, were reasoning about what had often happened among themselves, and descend to common place ideas, fancying that food had been brought Him by some one, and that it was perhaps more costly or sweeter than what had been got together by them.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
