"This," replied Jesus, "is above all the thing that God requires--that you should be believers in Him whom He has sent."
"What miracle then," they asked, "do you perform for us to see and become believers in you? What do you *do*?
Our forefathers ate the manna in the Desert, as it is written, `He gave them bread out of Heaven to eat'."
"In most solemn truth I tell you," replied Jesus, "that Moses did not give you the bread out of Heaven, but my Father is giving you the bread--the true bread--out of Heaven.
For God's bread is that which comes down out of Heaven and gives Life to the world."
"Sir," they said, "always give us that bread."
"I am the bread of Life," replied Jesus; "he who comes to me shall never hunger, and he who believes in me shall never, never thirst.
But it is as I have said to you: you have seen me and yet you do not believe.
Every one whom the Father gives me will come to me, and him who comes to me I will never on any account drive away.
For I have left Heaven and have come down to earth not to seek my own pleasure, but to do the will of Him who sent me.
And this is the will of Him who sent me, that of all that He has given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it to life on the last day.
