Week 39 Day 4
The Gospelwriter John shows
the great debate
Jesus' contemporaries had
because Jesus did good works
does that mean he came from God?
or was Jesus from the devil
because he did not follow
the traditional interpretation of the law?
If Jesus was of God
we must believe him
if Jesus was not from God
we must get rid of him
for some it was very difficult
the truth of this matter.
Jesus is the light in our darkness
an eternal fountain
the bread of life
our good shepherd
the vine that sustains us
the resurrection and the life
Once you know Jesus
you cannot stay as you are
believing is a transforming experience.
IT WON'T LET YOU DIE!
However, the Bread of Life is no piece of cake.
27Jesus said, "Do not labor for the food which perishes,
but for the food which endures to everlasting life. 29This is
the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent."
30They said to Him, "What sign will You perform, that we
may see it and believe? 31Our fathers ate the manna in the
desert; as it is written, 'He gave them bread from heaven to eat.'"
35Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life. He who comes
to Me shall never hunger. 38 I have come from heaven to do
the will of Him who sent Me, 40that everyone who sees the
Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life."
41The Jews then complained about Him. 42They said, "Is not
this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know?"
44Jesus answered, "No one can come to Me unless the Father
who sent Me draws him. 45 It is written in the prophets, 'They
shall all be taught by God.' Everyone who has heard and learned
from the Father comes to Me. 47 I say to you, he who believes
in Me has everlasting life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49Your
fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the living bread. If anyone eats of this
bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is
My flesh, which I give for the life of the world."
52The Jews therefore quarreled among themselves, saying,
"How can this Man give us His flesh to eat?"
55Jesus said, "My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is
drink indeed. 56He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood
abides in Me, and I in him. 57As I live because of the Father,
so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me."
59These things He said in the synagogue in Capernaum.
60Many of His disciples, when they heard this, said, "This
is a hard saying; who can understand it?" 61Jesus said to them,
"Does this offend you? What then if you should see the Son
of Man ascend where He was before? 63 It is the Spirit who
gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak
to you are spirit, and they are life."
66From that time many of His disciples walked with him
no more. 67Then Jesus said to the twelve, "Do you also want
to go away?" 68Simon Peter answered Him, "Lord, to whom
shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69We believe
and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
