Bread of Life

Bread of Life

Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand

Jesus transforms small things into miracles

  • water into wine

  • a meal for a lad into meals for 5000 people

drop in a bucket

a window’s offering

precious in His eyes

 1After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.

 2And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.

 3And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.

 4And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.

 5When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?

 6And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.

 7Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.

 8One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, saith unto him,

 9There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?

 10And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.

 11And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.

 12When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.

 13Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.

 14Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.

 15When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.

Jesus Walks on the Water

We often forget what Jesus can do

We can do nothing without Him

Jesus does nothing on His own.

 16And when even was now come, his disciples went down unto the sea,

 17And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them.

 18And the sea arose by reason of a great wind that blew.

 19So when they had rowed about five and twenty or thirty furlongs, they see Jesus walking on the sea, and drawing nigh unto the ship: and they were afraid.

 20But he saith unto them, It is I; be not afraid.

 21Then they willingly received him into the ship: and immediately the ship was at the land whither they went.

 22The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone;

 23(Howbeit there came other boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after that the Lord had given thanks:)

 24When the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they also took shipping, and came to Capernaum, seeking for Jesus.

Jesus the Bread of Life

do not worry nor afraid

ungodly desire and godly desire

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Believe on Jesus whom God sent

Believe that Jesus came down from heaven and gives life to the world

 25And when they had found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither?

 26Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled.

 27Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

 28Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?

 29Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

 30They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?

 31Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.

 32Then 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.

 33For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.

God’s will:

  • Jesus came down from heaven to give us life

  • We come to Jesus and believe on Jesus

  • Jesus loses none of us and will raise us up at the last day

Spirit helps us to

  • come, see, hear, learn,

  • and believe on Jesus

eternal life:

knowing God, the only true God, and

Jesus Christ whom God has sent

 34Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.

 35And 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.

 36But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.

 37All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

 38For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

 39And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

 40And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

 41The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.

 42And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?

 43Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.

 44No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

 45It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.

 46Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.

 47Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

 48I am that bread of life.

  • manna (flesh) – die

  • bread of heaven (Spirit) – life

  • eating the flesh of the Son of man

  • eating his blood

  • flesh / body that is willing to do God’s will / the way

  • blood / sanctifying blood / greater love

  • eating the flesh of affliction and sacrifice

  • eating the water of affliction and sacrifice

in oneness, like Jesus

 

  • borken bread

  • pouted-out wine

 9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.

 10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

 49Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.

 50This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.

 51I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

 52The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?

 53Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

 54Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

 55For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

 56He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

 57As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

 58This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

 59These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.

Many Disciples Desert Jesus

 1Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

 2By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

 3And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

 4And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

 5And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

 60Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?

 61When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?

 62What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?

 63It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

 64But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.

 65And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

 66From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.

 67Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?

 68Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

 69And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

 70Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?

 71He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.

Can you believe after crucifixion?

Can we believe in our trouble and tribulation?

 1These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

 2As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

 3And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

 4I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

 5And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

 6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.

 7Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.

 8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.

 9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

 10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.

 11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

 12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

 13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

Jesus’ joy in us

 14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

 18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

 20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

 21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

 22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

God and Jesus in us

 24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

 25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.

 26And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

Born Again

Born Again

Born of water and born of the Spirit

 1There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

 2The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

 3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

 4Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?

 5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

 6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

 7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

 8The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

 9Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?

 10Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?

Belief and Eternal Life

 11Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.

 12If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

 13And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

 14And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

 15That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

 16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Believe God sent His Son Jesus Christ who has power to save us.

Salvation and Condemnation

 17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

 18He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

 19And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

 20For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

 21But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Salvation comes from God.

Testimony and Witness

 22After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized.

 23And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized.

 24For John was not yet cast into prison.

 25Then there arose a question between some of John’s disciples and the Jews about purifying.

 26And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him.

 27John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.

 28Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him.

 29He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled.

 30He must increase, but I must decrease.

 31He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.

 32And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.

 33He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.

 34For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

 35The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.

 36He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Peace I leave with you

Reconciliation

 10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.  11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works‘ sake.

God sent Jesus Christ.

Words, Works

 20At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

We are with God and Jesus

my peace I give unto you

Intercession

 12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.  13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

Jesus will give us whatever we ask in His name.

 21He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

Jesus will love us and disclose Himself to us.

not as the world giveth, give I unto you

The Holy Spirit

 15If ye love me, keep my commandments.  16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;  17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.  18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Jesus will send us the Helper.

 23Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.  24He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

God and Jesus will come to us.

Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Rest in Jesus

 2In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.  3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

We will live with Jesus.

 19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

We will see Jesus and live with Him.

Need

Food, Clothing, and Shelter

Food

living water: sin-forgiving Spirit (sanctification)

 13Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

 14But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

 37In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.

 38He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

 39(But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

living bread: life-giving Word

 32Then 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.

 33For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.

 35And 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.

 48I am that bread of life.

 49Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.

 50This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.

 51I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

flesh and blood: redemption, substitution

 53Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

 54Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

 55For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.

 56He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

 57As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

 58This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

Work for the real food

 34Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

 27Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

Clothing

 44And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

 18Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.

 23Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.

 24They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

Shelter

 2In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

 4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

 5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

 6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

 7If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

 8Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

 9As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.

 10If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

 24Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

 30Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

 31But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

 2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
