Bible: John 6:25-34

Jesus’ Discourse About the Bread of Life

6:25 When they found him on the other side of the lake, 1  they said to him, “Rabbi, when did you get here? 2  6:26 Jesus replied, 3 I tell you the solemn truth, 4  you are looking for me not because you saw miraculous signs, but because you ate all the loaves of bread you wanted. 5  6:27 Do not work for the food that disappears, 6  but for the food that remains to eternal life – the food 7  which the Son of Man will give to you. For God the Father has put his seal of approval on him.” 8 

6:28 So then they said to him, “What must we do to accomplish the deeds 9  God requires? 10  6:29 Jesus replied, 11 This is the deed 12  God requires 13  – to believe in the one whom he 14  sent.” 6:30 So they said to him, “Then what miraculous sign will you perform, so that we may see it and believe you? What will you do? 6:31 Our ancestors 15  ate the manna in the wilderness, just as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’ 16 

6:32 Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the solemn truth, 17  it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but my Father is giving you the true bread from heaven. 6:33 For the bread of God is the one who 18  comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” 6:34 So they said to him, “Sir, 19  give us this bread all the time!
