Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, you are looking for me,1 not because you saw miraculous signs2 but because you ate the loaves and had your fill.27Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures3 to eternal life,4 which the Son of Man5 will give you. On him God the Father has placed his seal6 of approval."28
Then they asked him, "What must we do to do the works God requires?"
Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe7 in the one he has sent."830
So they asked him, "What miraculous sign9 then will you give that we may see it and believe you?10 What will you do?
Our forefathers ate the manna11 in the desert; as it is written: 'He gave them bread from heaven to eat.'a "1232
Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven.33For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven13 and gives life to the world."34
"Sir," they said, "from now on give us this bread."1435
Then Jesus declared, "I am15 the bread of life.16 He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes17 in me will never be thirsty.1836But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe.
