Bible Reading

John 6:24-35

The people saw that Jesus and his followers were not there now. So they got into boats and went to Capernaum. They wanted to find Jesus. The people found Jesus on the other side of the lake. They asked him, “Teacher, when did you come here?”

Jesus answered, “Are you looking for me because you saw me do miracles? No! I tell you the truth. You are looking for me because you ate the bread and were satisfied. Earthly food spoils and ruins. So don’t work to get that kind of food. But work to get the food that stays good always and gives you eternal life. The Son of Man will give you that food. God the Father has shown that he is with the Son of Man.”

The people asked Jesus, “What are the things God wants us to do?”

Jesus answered, “The work God wants you to do is this: to believe in the One that God sent.”

So the people asked, “What miracle will you do? If we can see a miracle, then we will believe you. What will you do? Our ancestors ate the manna in the desert. This is written in the Scriptures: ‘God gave them bread from heaven to eat.’”

Jesus said, “I tell you the truth. Moses was not the one who gave you bread from heaven. But my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. God’s bread is the One who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”

The people said, “Sir, give us this bread always.”

Then Jesus said, “I am the bread that gives life. He who comes to me will never be hungry. He who believes in me will never be thirsty.

Explanation

In last week’s story we heard about how Jesus used a small boy’s food to feed 5,000 people who had come to hear him speak.  The people wanted to know more about the man Jesus, and the miracles they had heard all about?  So, they followed him to Capernaum.   

Many of them wanted to know what God wanted them to do.

Jesus had fed them with bread that they could see and taste. Now he was explaining that God, his Father in heaven was giving them bread, not bread that you can see or taste but bread that lasted for always.  Jesus then said that he was the Bread of life and that believing in him would “feed” them the same as actual bread “fed” them.

Prayer

Dear Lord,
We thank you that you are the “bread of life” that feeds us every day.
Amen.
