John 6:22-44 American Standard Version

The People Seek Jesus

22  On the morrow the multitude that stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other boat there, save one, and that Jesus entered not with his disciples into the boat, but [that] his disciples went away alone 23  (howbeit there came boats from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they ate the bread after the Lord had given thanks): 24  when the multitude therefore saw that Jesus was not there, neither his disciples, they themselves got into the boats, and came to Capernaum, seeking Jesus.

Jesus the Bread of Life

25  And when they found him on the other side of the sea, they said unto him, Rabbi, when camest thou hither? 26  Jesus answered them and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw signs, but because ye ate of the loaves, and were filled. 27  Work not for the food which perisheth, but for the food which abideth unto eternal life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him the Father, even God, hath sealed.

28  They said therefore unto him, What must we do, that we may work the works of God? 29  Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. 30  They said therefore unto him, What then doest thou for a sign, that we may see, and believe thee? what workest thou? 31  Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, He gave them bread out of heaven to eat. 32  Jesus therefore said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, It was not Moses that gave you the bread out of heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread out of heaven. 33  For the bread of God is that which cometh down out of heaven, and giveth life unto the world. 34  They said therefore unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. 35  Jesus said unto them. I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall not hunger, and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. 36  But I said unto you, that ye have seen me, and yet believe not. 37  All that which the Father giveth me shall come unto me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. 38  For I am come down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 39  And this is the will of him that sent me, that of all that which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. 40  For this is the will of my Father, that every one that beholdeth the Son, and believeth on him, should have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 41  The Jews therefore murmured concerning him, because he said, I am the bread which came down out of heaven. 42  And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how doth he now say, I am come down out of heaven? 43  Jesus answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves. 44  No man can come to me, except the Father that sent me draw him: and I will raise him up in the last day.
