Bible study: Book of John

Posted on November 13, 2020 at 1:40 PM

*John 6.*

After feeding the 5000, Jesus got away from the crowds. But they searched him out, wanting another miracle (preferably a meal!).

Note the contrast with the Samaritans in John 4: no mention of a miracle, yet many believed. The Jews had witnessed miracles but were only interested in being fed.

Jesus said "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry."

His task, as with Nicodemus and the woman at the well, was to make people see spiritual rather than earthly meaning in his words.

In Samaria when the disciples returned, he said he had food. (John 4: 31-34.)

His food was to do God's will.

Here in John 6: 29 he says "The work of God is to believe in the one he has sent."

And in verse 35 "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry..."

He went on to talk about eating his flesh and drinking his blood. Many followers, unable or unwilling to understand, left him.

Jesus didn't try to stop them. He didn't want to keep "disciples" who only recognised earthly values. "The Spirit gives life, the flesh counts for nothing." (v 33).

What about us? What miracle do we pray for? Physical healing? A cure for Covid? To pass our exams or get that job? Are we like the Jews who try to make Jesus conform to *our* earthly values? Or have we learned that "the flesh counts for nothing"?
