20th Sunday of the Year: B
John Chapter: 6 Verse: 51-58
My flesh is real food and my blood is real drink
Jesus said to the Jews:
“I am the living bread which has come down from heaven.
Anyone who eats this bread will live for ever;
and the bread that I shall give
is my flesh for the life of the world.”
Then the Jews started arguing with one another: “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” they said. Jesus replied:
“I tell you the Truth,
if you do not eat the flesh of the Son of Man
and drink his blood,
you will not have life within you.
Anyone who does eat my flesh and drink my blood
has eternal life,
and I shall raise them up on the last day.
For my flesh is real food
and my blood is real drink.
The one who eats my flesh and drinks my blood
lives in me
and I live in him.
As I, who am sent by the living Father,
myself draw life from the Father,
so whoever eats me will draw life from me.
This is the bread come down from heaven;
not like the bread our ancestors ate:
they are dead,
but anyone who eats this bread will live forever.”
This is the Gospel of the Lord
