In the beginning of this Bread of Life Discourse Passage we see Jesus reveal His Face as the Son of God by the words He carefully chooses to use when He speaks to the Jews. He understands His audience and purposely parallels His words to that of the prophets of old, and to the previous experience of the Jewish people. Jesus begins with “I am the Bread of Life” not by pure coincidence; He is typologically likening Himself to the “manna,” which gave sustenance to the Jewish people in the desert .
I never questioned the Real Presence.... wow though, that sure did upset the folks at Liberty University!
Very enjoyable! I always relish discourse which embodies Christ in the Eucharist. I think my very favorite passage of Scripture is the Bread of Life Discourse, Chapter 6, Gospel of John. I have read this many times over the years, and always think, 'how can One Not believe in the Transubstantiation of Bread and Wine to Flesh and Blood'! These Words are from Jesus Himself and unveil One of the Great Mysteries of God. Yours is a good write; Thank you👍
