»Hört auf, so zu reden! Niemand kann von sich selbst aus zu mir kommen. Der Vater, der mich gesandt hat, muss ihn zu mir ziehen. Und wer zu mir kommt, den werde ich an jenem letzten Tag auferwecken. Es heißt in der Schrift bei den Propheten: ›Sie werden alle von Gott selbst gelehrt sein.‹ Jeder, der auf das hört, was der Vater sagt, und von ihm lernt, kommt zu mir. Das heißt nun aber nicht, dass irgendjemand den Vater gesehen hat. Nur der eine, der von Gott kommt, hat den Vater gesehen. Ich versichere euch: Wer glaubt, hat das ewige Leben. Ich bin das Brot des Lebens. Eure Vorfahren, die in der Wüste das Manna gegessen haben, sind gestorben. Hier aber ist das ´wahre` Brot, das vom Himmel herabkommt: Wer davon isst, wird nicht sterben. Ich bin das lebendige Brot, das vom Himmel herabgekommen ist. Wenn jemand von diesem Brot isst, wird er ewig leben. Dieses Brot, das ich ihm geben werde, ist mein Fleisch; ich gebe es hin für das Leben der Welt.«
The Jews therefore quarreled among themselves, saying,
Unter den Juden kam es daraufhin zu einer heftigen Auseinandersetzung.
“How can this Man give us His flesh to eat?”
»Wie kann dieser Mensch uns sein Fleisch zu essen geben?«, fragten sie.
Then Jesus said to them,
Jesus aber sagte zu ihnen:
“Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life , and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me. This is the bread which came down from heaven— not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever. ”
»Ich versichere euch: Wenn ihr das Fleisch des Menschensohnes nicht esst und sein Blut nicht trinkt, habt ihr das Leben nicht in euch. Wer mein Fleisch isst und mein Blut trinkt, hat das ewige Leben, und ich werde ihn an jenem letzten Tag auferwecken. Denn mein Fleisch ist die wahre Nahrung, und mein Blut ist der wahre Trank. Wer mein Fleisch isst und mein Blut trinkt, der bleibt in mir, und ich bleibe in ihm. Der Vater, der lebendige ´Gott`, hat mich gesandt, und ich lebe durch ihn. Genauso wird auch der, der mich isst, durch mich leben. Das ist also das Brot, das vom Himmel herabgekommen ist. Bei diesem Brot ist es nicht wie bei dem, das die Vorfahren gegessen haben. Sie sind gestorben; aber wer dieses Brot isst, wird ewig leben.«

Notes
Main Point: Believe Me. Illustration #1: I'm the true bread. Eat this bread Many years earlier, God provided manna for the Israels every morning in the desert. The manna was good only for a day at a time. The manna stopped once Israel entered the promised Land. Jesus is the true manna. The manna in the desert pointed to Jesus who is the true bread from God to satisfy people's deep spiritual hunger for eternal life. Illustration #2: Eat my flesh and drink my blood. Food for people comes from plants and animals. A plant or an animal has to die in order to be eaten. Either the animal dies and people live or people die and the animal stays alive. Jesus says that He will die so that we may live eternally. Hence, unless one eats and drinks Him, that person will die eternally. 6:27 What are you laboring for? It is necessary to work in order to provide food for our bodies. So Jesus did not speak against that. When He says: "Do not labor for the food which perishes" he speaks about eternal matters. Food or anything that decays will not last forever. Hence, it is intelligent to prioritize and set eternal matters first. Jesus Christ is eternal. So it is best for people to make Him priority number one. 6:42-51 The Jews murmured over Jesus' words. Jesus responds graciously: Stop murmuring, look at the signs/facts and believe Me. Lest you are one of the once that will remain in darkness and denial.
