On him God the Father has placed his seal of approval."
28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do , that we might work the works of God? 28 Then they asked him, "What must we do to do the works God requires?"
29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent . 29 Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent."
30 They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see , and believe thee? what dost thou work ? 30 So they asked him, "What miraculous sign then will you give that we may see it and believe you? What will you do?

32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. 32 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.
33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. 33 For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world."

35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger ; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst . 35 Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.
36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. 36 But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe.
