27 Labour not for
the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you:
for him hath God the Father sealed.
28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of
answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
30 They said therefore
unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?
31 Our fathers did
eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.
32 Then Jesus said unto them,
Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from
the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
34 Then said they unto him,
Lord, evermore give us this bread.
35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall
never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me,
and believe not.
37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise
I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
39 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
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.
41 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread
which came down from heaven.
42 And they said, 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?
43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur
not among yourselves.
44 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.
45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that
hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.
46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which
is of God, he hath seen the Father.
47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
48 I am that bread
fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven,
that a man may eat thereof, and not die.
51 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
Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
53 Then Jesus said
unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life
eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
55 For my flesh
is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me,
and I in him.
57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he
shall live by me.
58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are
dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.
59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught
60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who
can hear it?
61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this
62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
63 It is the spirit
that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
64 But there are
some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
65 And he said,
Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
66 From that time
many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go
Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.
69 And we believe
and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve,
and one of you is a devil?
71 He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one
of the twelve.

14 In whom we have redemption through his blood,
even the forgiveness of sins:
is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
