25 When they found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him, (A)“Rabbi, when did you come here?” 26 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, (B)you are seeking me, not because you saw (C)signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves. 27 (D)Do not work for the food that perishes, but for (E)the food that endures to eternal life, which (F)the Son of Man will give to you. For on (G)him God the Father has (H)set his seal.” 28 Then they said to him, “What must we do, to be doing (I)the works of God?” 29 Jesus answered them, “This is the work of God, (J)that you believe in him whom (K)he has sent.” 30 So they said to him, (L)“Then what sign do you do, that we may see and believe you? What work do you perform? 31 (M)Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, (N)‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’” 32 Jesus 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. 33 For the bread of God is (O)he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” 34 They said to him, (P)“Sir, give us this bread always.”

35 Jesus said to them, (Q)“I am the bread of life; (R)whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. 36 But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. 37 (S)All that (T)the Father gives me will come to me, and (U)whoever comes to me I will never cast out. 38 For (V)I have come down from heaven, not to do (W)my own will but (X)the will of him (Y)who sent me. 39 And (Z)this is the will of him who sent me, (AA)that I should lose nothing of (AB)all that he has given me, but (AC)raise it up on the last day. 40 For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who (AD)looks on the Son and (AE)believes in him (AF)should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.”

41 So the Jews grumbled about him, because he said, (AG)“I am the bread that came down from heaven.” 42 They said, (AH)“Is not this Jesus, (AI)the son of Joseph, whose father and mother (AJ)we know? How does he now say, ‘I have come down from heaven’?”
