This Week's Scripture Verse
John 6:35,41-51 (paraphrase Nathan Nettleton)
.Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Anyone who comes on board with me will never hunger or thirst again. Put your trust in me and you will always be satisfied.”
...Because of this, people began to grumble about him. They objected to him claiming to be the bread that came from heaven. They muttered to one another saying,
“What does he take us for? We know who he is - Jesus, Joseph’s son.
Is he forgetting that we know his mom and dad? How does he expect us to take him seriously when he says, ‘I have come from heaven’?” Jesus answered them:
...“Don’t go getting all worked up over me. The One who sent me is responsible for drawing people to me — otherwise no one would come. I’ll always be there for those who do come - each and every one of them. Even on the last day, I’ll be there, raising them to new life. One of the prophets put it this way, ‘Every last one of them will learn directly from God.’ So everyone who really tunes in to God and takes in what they hear will recognize who I am,
and come to learn from me. Everyone wants to learn from an eyewitness and the only person who has seen God is the one who came from God. No one else has.
Let me set you straight on this: whoever has faith has life — life without limit.
...I am the bread of life. Sure, your ancestors ate manna in the desert, but they still died.
Now it’s different. Now the real bread has come from heaven and you can eat it
and be protected from death forever. I am the bread — living bread — straight from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live life without end and without limit.
The bread that I’m offering is my own flesh, and I give it for the life of the world.”
