Bible: John 6:48-58

6:48 I am the bread of life. 1  6:49 Your ancestors 2  ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. 6:50 This 3  is the bread that has come down from heaven, so that a person 4  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 5  that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.”

6:52 Then the Jews who were hostile to Jesus 6  began to argue with one another, 7 How can this man 8  give us his flesh to eat? 6:53 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the solemn truth, 9  unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, 10  you have no life 11  in yourselves. 6:54 The one who eats 12  my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. 13  6:55 For my flesh is true 14  food, and my blood is true 15  drink. 6:56 The one who eats 16  my flesh and drinks my blood resides in me, and I in him. 17  6:57 Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so the one who consumes 18  me will live because of me. 6:58 This 19  is the bread that came down from heaven; it is not like the bread your ancestors 20  ate, but then later died. 21  The one who eats 22  this bread will live forever.”
