I am the bread of life.1
Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died.2
But here is the bread that comes down from heaven,3 which a man may eat and not die.
I am the living bread4 that came down from heaven.5 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."6
