Bible: Jn 6:53-59

6:53 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the solemn truth, 1  unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, 2  you have no life 3  in yourselves. 6:54 The one who eats 4  my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. 5  6:55 For my flesh is true 6  food, and my blood is true 7  drink. 6:56 The one who eats 8  my flesh and drinks my blood resides in me, and I in him. 9  6:57 Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so the one who consumes 10  me will live because of me. 6:58 This 11  is the bread that came down from heaven; it is not like the bread your ancestors 12  ate, but then later died. 13  The one who eats 14  this bread will live forever.”
