"Sir," they said, "from now on give us this bread."1
Then Jesus declared, "I am2 the bread of life.3 He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes4 in me will never be thirsty.5
But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe.
All that the Father gives me6 will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.
For I have come down from heaven7 not to do my will but to do the will8 of him who sent me.9
And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me,10 but raise them up at the last day.11
For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son12 and believes in him shall have eternal life,13 and I will raise him up at the last day."
At this the Jews began to grumble about him because he said, "I am the bread that came down from heaven."
They said, "Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph,14 whose father and mother we know?15 How can he now say, 'I came down from heaven'?"16
"Stop grumbling among yourselves," Jesus answered.
"No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him,17 and I will raise him up at the last day.
