I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life.1
I am the bread of life.2
Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died.3
But here is the bread that comes down from heaven,4 which a man may eat and not die.
I am the living bread5 that came down from heaven.6 If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world."7
Then the Jews8 began to argue sharply among themselves,9 "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?"
Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh10 of the Son of Man11 and drink his blood,12 you have no life in you.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.13
For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.14
Just as the living Father sent me15 and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.
