47 Truly, truly, I say to you, (A)whoever believes has eternal life. 48 (B)I am the bread of life. 49 (C)Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and (D)they died. 50 (E)This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it (F)and not die. 51 I am the living bread (G)that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give (H)for the life of the world is (I)my flesh.”

52 The Jews then (J)disputed among themselves, saying, (K)“How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” 53 So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of (L)the Son of Man and drink his blood, you (M)have no life in you. 54 Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood (N)has eternal life, and (O)I will raise him up on the last day. 55 For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. 56 Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood (P)abides in me, and I in him. 57 As (Q)the living Father (R)sent me, and (S)I live because of the Father, so whoever feeds on me, he also will live because of me. 58 (T)This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like the bread[a] the fathers ate, and died. Whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.” 59 Jesus[b] said these things in the synagogue, as he taught (U)at Capernaum.
