The angels asked me to post on the Gospel every Sunday. With Love and gratitude, here it is on the Gospel of John 6:41-51
The Jews murmured about Jesus because he had said,
“I am the Living Bread that comes down from Heaven,”
and they said,
“Is this not Jesus the Son of Joseph?
Do we not know his father and mother?
Then how can he say,
“I have come down from Heaven?”
Jesus answered and said to them,
“Stop murmuring among yourselves.
No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draw him
and I will raise him up on the last day.
It is written in the prophets:
They shall all be taught by God.
Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from Him comes to me.
Not that anyone has seen the Father.
Amen, amen I say to you
whoever believes has eternal life.
I am the bread of life.
Your ancestors ate manna in the desert, but they died;
this is the bread that comes down from Heaven
so that one may eat it and not die.
I am the Living Bread who comes down from Heaven;
whoever eats this bread will live forever;
and the bread that I give is my flesh for the life of the world.
Jesus doesn’t think like humans do, and stops the disbelief that is being murmured from the Jews with authority and wisdom. Jesus is explaining that he came down from Heaven, incarnated as the walking,Living Bread of eternal life.
It was written -“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…..And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. JOHN 1:1,14″
Jesus IS The True Living Word of God incarnated as flesh. He was with God in the Beginning before ever incarnating here on Earth.
In the Old Testament, God supplied “manna”, which was ‘spiritual food’ for ancestors of these people. Manna was good, but Jesus points out that they still died.
Jesus is not just “manna’ , but the actual living incarnate Living Bread/Living Word, of eternal life. Accepting him, people will never die, but have eternal life.
Inviting Jesus in our hearts, is asking for the Holy Living Eternal, Everlasting Life to be in our hearts….and that’s a question worth asking! Continue to receive him in Eucharist every Sunday (or daily!). I promise you, this will not go unnoticed and you will feel multiplied and filled in faith by doing so!
