May 12 Because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven,” the Jews murmured: How can he say “Ive come from heaven.” Isnt this Josephs4 son whose parents we know?

Jesus said, “Stop murmuring! No one comes to me  unless the Father who sent me draws him, and Ill raise him up on the last day. The prophets wrote, Theyll all be taught by God. Everyone who has heard and learnt from the Father comes to me. No one but His emissary5 has seen the Father. Truly, I say, every believer has eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. I am the living bread from heaven, anyone who eats this bread will live forever. The bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” The Jews argued among themselves, saying, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?”
