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 cast out. 38 For 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 day. 40 And 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 of life. 49 Your 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 the world.

52 The 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 in you. 54 Whoso 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 in Capernaum. 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 offend you? 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.

35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to Me shall never hunger, and whoever believes in Me shall never thirst. 36 But I told you that you have seen Me, and yet do not believe. 37 All whom the Father gives Me will come to Me, and he who comes to Me I will never cast out. 38 For I came down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. 39 This is the will of the Father who has sent Me, that of all whom He has given Me, I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. 40 This is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.”

41 The Jews then murmured about Him, because He said, “I am the bread which came down from heaven.” 42 They said, “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He says, ‘I have come down from heaven’? ”

43 Jesus therefore answered them, “Do not murmur among yourselves. 44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who has sent Me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day. 45 It is written in the Prophets, ‘They shall all be taught by God.’[a] Therefore everyone who has heard and has learned of the Father comes to Me. 46 Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God. He has seen the Father. 47 Truly, truly I say to you, whoever believes in Me has eternal life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your fathers ate manna in the wilderness, and they died. 50 This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. The bread which I shall give for the life of the world is My flesh.”

52 The Jews therefore quarreled among themselves, saying, “How can this Man give us His flesh to eat?”

53 Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. 54 Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life. And I will raise him up on the last day. 55 For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. 56 Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood remains in Me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever feeds on Me also will live because of Me. 58 This is the bread which came down from heaven, not as your fathers ate manna and died. He who eats this bread will live forever.” 59 He said these things in the synagogue, as He taught in Capernaum.

The Words of Eternal Life

60 When they heard this, many of His disciples said, “This is a hard saying. Who can listen to it?”

61 Knowing in Himself that His disciples murmured about it, Jesus said to them, “Does this offend you? 62 Then what if you see the Son of Man ascend to 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 are life. 64 But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who it was who would betray Him. 65 Then He said, “For this reason I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it were given him by My Father.”

66 From that time many of His disciples went back and walked no more with Him.

35 And Jesus said to them, (A)“I am the bread of life. (B)He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never (C)thirst. 36 (D)But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet (E)do not believe. 37 (F)All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and (G)the one who comes to Me I will [a]by no means cast out. 38 For I have come down from heaven, (H)not to do My own will, (I)but the will of Him who sent Me. 39 This is the will of the Father who sent Me, (J)that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. 40 And this is the will of Him who sent Me, (K)that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”

Rejected by His Own

41 The Jews then [b]complained about Him, because He said, “I am the bread which came down from heaven.” 42 And they said, (L)“Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He says, ‘I have come down from heaven’?”

43 Jesus therefore answered and said to them, [c]“Do not murmur among yourselves. 44 (M)No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me (N)draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets, (O)‘And they shall all be taught by God.’ (P)Therefore everyone who [d]has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me. 46 (Q)Not that anyone has seen the Father, (R)except He who is from God; He has seen the Father. 47 Most assuredly, I say to you, (S)he who believes [e]in Me has everlasting life. 48 (T)I am the bread of life. 49 (U)Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50 (V)This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the living bread (W)which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and (X)the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

52 The Jews therefore (Y)quarreled among themselves, saying, “How can this Man give us His flesh to eat?”

53 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless (Z)you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. 54 (AA)Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For My flesh is [f]food indeed, and My blood is [g]drink indeed. 56 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood (AB)abides in Me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me. 58 (AC)This is the bread which came down from heaven—not (AD)as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.”

59 These things He said in the synagogue as He taught in Capernaum.

Many Disciples Turn Away

60 (AE)Therefore many of His disciples, when they heard this, said, “This is a [h]hard saying; who can understand it?”

61 When Jesus knew in Himself that His disciples [i]complained about this, He said to them, “Does this [j]offend you? 62 (AF)What then if you should see the Son of Man ascend where He was before? 63 (AG)It is the Spirit who gives life; the (AH)flesh profits nothing. The (AI)words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. 64 But (AJ)there are some of you who do not believe.” For (AK)Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would betray Him. 65 And He said, “Therefore (AL)I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father.”

66 (AM)From that time many of His disciples went [k]back and walked with Him no more.

35 Jesús les dijo: Yo soy el pan de vida; el que a mí viene, nunca tendrá hambre; y el que en mí cree, no tendrá sed jamás.

36 Mas os he dicho, que aunque me habéis visto, no creéis.

37 Todo lo que el Padre me da, vendrá a mí; y al que a mí viene, no le echo fuera.

38 Porque he descendido del cielo, no para hacer mi voluntad, sino la voluntad del que me envió.

39 Y esta es la voluntad del Padre, el que me envió: Que de todo lo que me diere, no pierda yo nada, sino que lo resucite en el día postrero.

40 Y esta es la voluntad del que me ha enviado: Que todo aquél que ve al Hijo, y cree en él, tenga vida eterna; y yo le resucitaré en el día postrero.

41 Murmuraban entonces de él los judíos, porque había dicho: Yo soy el pan que descendió del cielo.

42 Y decían: ¿No es éste Jesús, el hijo de José, cuyo padre y madre nosotros conocemos? ¿Cómo, pues, dice éste: Del cielo he descendido?

43 Jesús respondió y les dijo: No murmuréis entre vosotros.

44 Ninguno puede venir a mí, si el Padre que me envió no le trajere; y yo le resucitaré en el día postrero.

45 Escrito está en los profetas: Y serán todos enseñados por Dios.(A) Así que, todo aquel que oyó al Padre, y aprendió de él, viene a mí.

46 No que alguno haya visto al Padre, sino aquel que vino de Dios; éste ha visto al Padre.

47 De cierto, de cierto os digo: El que cree en mí, tiene vida eterna.

48 Yo soy el pan de vida.

49 Vuestros padres comieron el maná en el desierto, y murieron.

50 Este es el pan que desciende del cielo, para que el que de él come, no muera.

51 Yo soy el pan vivo que descendió del cielo; si alguno comiere de este pan, vivirá para siempre; y el pan que yo daré es mi carne, la cual yo daré por la vida del mundo.

52 Entonces los judíos contendían entre sí, diciendo: ¿Cómo puede éste darnos a comer su carne?

53 Jesús les dijo: De cierto, de cierto os digo: Si no coméis la carne del Hijo del Hombre, y bebéis su sangre, no tenéis vida en vosotros.

54 El que come mi carne y bebe mi sangre, tiene vida eterna; y yo le resucitaré en el día postrero.

55 Porque mi carne es verdadera comida, y mi sangre es verdadera bebida.

56 El que come mi carne y bebe mi sangre, en mí permanece, y yo en él.

57 Como me envió el Padre viviente, y yo vivo por el Padre, asimismo el que me come, él también vivirá por mí.

58 Este es el pan que descendió del cielo; no como vuestros padres comieron el maná, y murieron; el que come de este pan, vivirá eternamente.

59 Estas cosas dijo en la sinagoga, enseñando en Capernaum.

Palabras de vida eterna

60 Al oírlas, muchos de sus discípulos dijeron: Dura es esta palabra; ¿quién la puede oír?

61 Sabiendo Jesús en sí mismo que sus discípulos murmuraban de esto, les dijo: ¿Esto os ofende?

62 ¿Pues qué, si viereis al Hijo del Hombre subir adonde estaba primero?

63 El espíritu es el que da vida; la carne para nada aprovecha; las palabras que yo os he hablado son espíritu y son vida.

64 Pero hay algunos de vosotros que no creen. Porque Jesús sabía desde el principio quiénes eran los que no creían, y quién le había de entregar.

65 Y dijo: Por eso os he dicho que ninguno puede venir a mí, si no le fuere dado del Padre.

66 Desde entonces muchos de sus discípulos volvieron atrás, y ya no andaban con él.
