Jesus told his Disciples I am the Living Bread come down from heaven. Whoever eats this Bread will live forever, and the Bread that I will give is my Flesh for the life of the world.
Then the Disciples/protestants complained and said “who can give us his flesh to eat!” …I mentioned the word Protestant because thats what these men were, they were in protest regarding our Lords words here.
Jesus, heard them complaining and He did not budge. Then Jesus said again, “Truely, Truely I say to you, unless you Eat the Flesh of the Son of Man and Drink his Blood, you have no life in YOU; he who eats my Flesh and Drinks my Blood has Eternal Life, and I will raise him up at the Last Day. For my Flesh is real food indeed and my Blood is real Drink indeed.” (John 6: 53-55)
Jesus Christ uses the words “INDEED” “TRUELY TRUELY I SAY TO YOU,” " I SOLEMNLY ASSURE YOU or in the King James Bible “VERILY, VERILY I SAY TO YOU” my point is that these words are STRONG WORDS for only a SYMBOL, don’t you think?
The Truth is it is not a symbol but the true presence of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen
**To all I say, No! To all Jesus Says, not me, INDEED, TRULY TRULY I SAY UNTO YOU, I SOLEMNLY ASSURE, VERILY VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU this is my BODY and BLOOD EAT and DRINK and LIVE FOREVER! All I do through the Grace of Our Lord Jesus is BELIEVE and EAT! AMEN:thumbsup: **
The Aramaic word for “EATS” means literally to Chew or munch on.
Then the Disciple complained again, saying "This is a hard saying WHO CAN ACCEPT IT! Many, of Jesus Disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him they walked away…(John 6: 60)****
WHO CAN ACCEPT IT SAID THESE ONCE FOLLOWERS OF JESUS? **The Answer is the Catholic Church ACCEPTS IT! AMEN! **
These men above who had been with Him for months or years who were used to His Strange and extraordiary ways walked with him NO MORE.
Now what did Jesus Christ Do? The answer is in the Bible (John 6: 66) Jesus Christ let them go! Jesus, did not say, HEY! Wait a minute men, you are taking my words too literally… These men took Jesus Christ Literally because, Jesus Christ, meant it LITERALLY! And these men could not BELIEVE IT, Like Many do today.
All Jesus said about the Bread of Life is the Revelation of the Spirit, the Spirit Makes it so.
In other Places in the Bible Jesus Clarified when he was Misunderstood, like, when the Apostles found him in a far out place and they thought he might be hungry. Jesus said…“I HAVE FOOD YOU KNOW NOT OF” Jesus knew what they were thinking and CLARIFIED them saying “MY FOOD IS TO DO THE WILL OF MY FATHER.”
Why did not Jesus CLARIFY here concerning the EUCHARIST The Bread and Blood to those men who Left? The answer is Because Jesus knew **THEY UNDERSTOOD HIM CORRECTLY! **
