Jesus said to Jews: “I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever..." The Jews quarreled among themselves, saying, “How can this man give us [his] flesh to eat? ...”
Today Jesus announces the most precious gift He is willing to give us: Himself, His own sacrificed Body and His Blood shed for our salvation. Only a great faith can be certain of those words from the Lord. Some Jews argued and distrusted them.
