John 6:51  (King James Version)
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.

and the bread
This was one of the things which the Jews expected from the Messiah, as we learn from Midrash Koheleth. "Rabbi Berechiah, in the name of Rabbi Issac said, As was the first Redeemer, so also shall be the latter. The first Redeemer made manna descend from heaven, as it is said in Exodus 16:4 ,'And I will rain bread from heaven for you.' So also the latter Redeemer shall make manna descend, as it is said, Psalms 72:16 ,'There shall be a handful of corn in the earth
' etc."
