Bible: John 6:47-58

6:47 I tell you the solemn truth, 1  the one who believes 2  has eternal life. 3  6:48 I am the bread of life. 4  6:49 Your ancestors 5  ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. 6:50 This 6  is the bread that has come down from heaven, so that a person 7  may eat from it and not die. 6:51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats from this bread he will live forever. The bread 8  that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.”

6:52 Then the Jews who were hostile to Jesus 9  began to argue with one another, 10 How can this man 11  give us his flesh to eat? 6:53 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the solemn truth, 12  unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, 13  you have no life 14  in yourselves. 6:54 The one who eats 15  my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. 16  6:55 For my flesh is true 17  food, and my blood is true 18  drink. 6:56 The one who eats 19  my flesh and drinks my blood resides in me, and I in him. 20  6:57 Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so the one who consumes 21  me will live because of me. 6:58 This 22  is the bread that came down from heaven; it is not like the bread your ancestors 23  ate, but then later died. 24  The one who eats 25  this bread will live forever.”
