I am the Bread of Life – Jesus Christ


Rabbi, when camest
thou hither? Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because
ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled. Labour not for the meat which
perisheth, but labour for that meat which endureth unto
everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto
you: for him hath God the Father sealed. What shall we do, that we might
work the works of God? This is the work of God,
that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. What sign sheweth thou
then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work? Our fathers did eat manna in the
desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from
heaven to eat. Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father
giveth you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is he which
cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto
the world. Lord, evermore give
us this bread. I am the bread of life: he that
cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth
on me shall never thirst. But I said unto you, That
ye also have seen me, and believe not. All that the Father giveth me
shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in
no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not
to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father’s will
which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I
should lose nothing, but should raise it up again
at the last day. And this is the will of him that
sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and
believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will
raise him up at the last day. Is not this Jesus, the son of
Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith,
I came down from heaven? Murmer not among yourselves. No man can come to me, except
the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise
him up at the last day. It is written in the law and the
prophets, And they shall all be taught of God. Every man therefore that hath
heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me. Not that any man hath seen the
Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father. Verily, verily, I say unto you,
He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in
the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh
down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came
down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall
live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my
flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. How can this man give
us his flesh to eat? Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and
drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and
drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise
him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and
my blood is drink indeed. And he that eateth my flesh,
and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent
me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even
he shall live by me. This is that bread which came
down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna in the
wilderness, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread
shall live forever. This is an hard saying;
who can hear it? Doth this offend you? What and if ye shall see the Son
of man ascend up where he was before? It is the spirit that
quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words
that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. I said unto you, there are some
of you that believe not. Therefore said I unto you, that
no man can come unto me, except it were given unto
him of my Father. Will ye also go away? Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words
of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that
thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God. Have I not chosen you twelve,
and one of you is a devil?
