John 6:16-58

Jesus Walks on Water

16When evening came, his disciples went down to the sea, 17got into a boat, and started across the sea to Capernaum. It was now dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. 18The sea became rough because a strong wind was blowing. 19When they had rowed about three or four miles,
Greek twenty-five or thirty stadia; a stadion was about 607 feet or 185 meters
they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they were frightened.
20 bBut he said to them, “It is I; do not be afraid.” 21Then they were glad to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land to which they were going.

I Am the Bread of Life

22On the next day the crowd that remained on the other side of the sea saw that there had been only cone boat there, and that Jesus had not entered the boat with his disciples, but that his disciples had gone away alone. 23Other boats from Tiberias came near the place where they had eaten the bread after the Lord dhad given thanks. 24 eSo when the crowd saw that Jesus was not there, nor his disciples, they themselves got into the boats and fwent to Capernaum, seeking Jesus.

25When they found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him, gRabbi, when did you come here?” 26Jesus answered them, Truly, truly, I say to you, hyou are seeking me, not because you saw isigns, but because you ate your fill of the loaves. 27 jDo not work for the food that perishes, but for kthe food that endures to eternal life, which lthe Son of Man will give to you. For on mhim God the Father has nset his seal.” 28Then they said to him, “What must we do, to be doing othe works of God?” 29Jesus answered them, This is the work of God, pthat you believe in him whom qhe has sent.” 30So they said to him, rThen what sign do you do, that we may see and believe you? What work do you perform? 31 sOur fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, t‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’” 32Jesus then said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. 33For the bread of God is uhe who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” 34They said to him, vSir, give us this bread always.”

35Jesus said to them, wI am the bread of life; xwhoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. 36But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. 37 yAll that zthe Father gives me will come to me, and aawhoever comes to me I will never cast out. 38For abI have come down from heaven, not to do acmy own will but adthe will of him aewho sent me. 39And afthis is the will of him who sent me, agthat I should lose nothing of ahall that he has given me, but airaise it up on the last day. 40For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who ajlooks on the Son and akbelieves in him alshould have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.”

41So the Jews grumbled about him, because he said, amI am the bread that came down from heaven.” 42They said, anIs not this Jesus, aothe son of Joseph, whose father and mother apwe know? How does he now say, ‘I have come down from heaven?” 43Jesus answered them, “Do not grumble among yourselves. 44No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me aqdraws him. And arI will raise him up on the last day. 45It is written in the Prophets, asAnd they will all be attaught by God.’ auEveryone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to me 46 avnot that anyone has seen the Father except awhe who is from God; he axhas seen the Father. 47Truly, truly, I say to you, aywhoever believes has eternal life. 48 azI am the bread of life. 49 baYour fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and bbthey died. 50 bcThis is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it bdand not die. 51I am the living bread bethat came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give bffor the life of the world is bgmy flesh.”

52The Jews then bhdisputed among themselves, saying, biHow can this man give us his flesh to eat?” 53So Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of bjthe Son of Man and drink his blood, you bkhave no life in you. 54Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood blhas eternal life, and bmI will raise him up on the last day. 55For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. 56Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood bnabides in me, and I in him. 57As bothe living Father bpsent me, and bqI live because of the Father, so whoever feeds on me, he also will live because of me. 58 brThis is the bread that came down from heaven, not like the bread
Greek lacks  the bread
the fathers ate, and died. Whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.”
