John 6:22-44 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
22 The next day 1the crowd that stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other small boat there, except one, and that Jesus 2had not entered with His disciples into the boat, but that His disciples had gone away alone. 23 There came other small boats from 3Tiberias near to the place where they ate the bread after the 4Lord 5had given thanks. 24 So when the crowd saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they themselves got into the small boats, and 6came to Capernaum seeking Jesus. 25 When they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, "7Rabbi, when did You get here?"

Words to the People

26 Jesus answered them and said, "Truly, truly, I say to you, you 8seek Me, not because you saw 9signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. 27 "Do not 10work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to 11eternal life, which 12the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, God, 13has set His seal." 28 Therefore they said to Him, "What shall we do, so that we may work the works of God?" 29 Jesus answered and said to them, "This is 14the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He 15has sent." 30 So they said to Him, "16What then do You do for a 17sign, so that we may see, and believe You? What work do You perform? 31 "18Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, '19HE GAVE THEM BREAD OUT OF HEAVEN TO EAT.' " 32 Jesus then said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven. 33 "For the bread of God is athat which 20comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world." 34 Then they said to Him, "Lord, always 21give us this bread." 35 Jesus said to them, "22I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me 23will never thirst. 36 "But 24I said to you that you have seen Me, and yet do not believe. 37 "25All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out. 38 "For 26I have come down from heaven, 27not to do My own will, but 28the will of Him who 29sent Me. 39 "This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of 30all that He has given Me I 31lose nothing, but 32raise it up on the last day. 40 "For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who 33beholds the Son and 34believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will 35raise him up on the last day."

Words to the Jews

41 36Therefore the Jews were grumbling about Him, because He said, "I am the bread that 37came down out of heaven." 42 They were saying, "38Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother 39we know? How does He now say, '40I have come down out of heaven '?" 43 Jesus answered and said to them, "Do not grumble among yourselves. 44 "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me 41draws him; and I will 42raise him up on the last day.
