Our forefathers ate the manna3 in the desert; as it is written: 'He gave them bread from heaven to eat.'a "432
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 heaven5 and gives life to the world."34
"Sir," they said, "from now on give us this bread."635
Then Jesus declared, "I am7 the bread of life.8 He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes9 in me will never be thirsty.1036But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe.37All that the Father gives me11 will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.38For I have come down from heaven12 not to do my will but to do the will13 of him who sent me.1439And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me,15 but raise them up at the last day.1640For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son17 and believes in him shall have eternal life,18 and I will raise him up at the last day."
