Context
Jesus the Bread of Life

26Jesus answered them and said, Truly, truly, I say to you, You seek me, not because you saw the miracles, but because you did eat of the loaves, and were filled. 27Labor not for the meat which perishes, but for that meat which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give to you: for him has God the Father sealed. 28Then said they to him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? 29Jesus answered and said to them, This is the work of God, that you believe on him whom he has sent. 30They said therefore to him, What sign show you then, that we may see, and believe you? what do you work? 31Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat. 32Then Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. 33For the bread of God is he which comes down from heaven, and gives life to the world. 34Then said they to him, Lord, ever more give us this bread. 35And Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life: he that comes to me shall never hunger; and he that believes on me shall never thirst. 36But I said to you, That you also have seen me, and believe not. 37All that the Father gives me shall come to me; and him that comes to me I will in no wise cast out. 38For I came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him that sent me. 39And this is the Father's will which has sent me, that of all which he has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 40And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which sees the Son, and believes on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. 41The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven. 42And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he said, I came down from heaven? 43Jesus therefore answered and said to them, Murmur not among yourselves. 44No man can come to me, except the Father which has sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. 45It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that has heard, and has learned of the Father, comes to me. 46Not that any man has seen the Father, save he which is of God, he has seen the Father. 47Truly, truly, I say to you, He that believes on me has everlasting life. 48I am that bread of life. 49Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. 51I 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. 52The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? 53Then Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you have no life in you. 54Whoever eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, has eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 55For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 56He that eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, dwells in me, and I in him. 57As the living Father has sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eats me, even he shall live by me. 58This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eats of this bread shall live for ever. 59These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.
