John 6:45-71 Darby’s Translation

45  It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every one that has heard from the Father [himself], and has learned [of him], comes to me; 46  not that any one has seen the Father, except he who is of God, he has seen the Father. 47  Verily, verily, I say to you, He that believes [on me] has life eternal. 48  I am the bread of life. 49  Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness and died. 50  This is the bread which comes down out of heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. 51  I am the living bread which has come down out of heaven: if any one shall have eaten of this bread he shall live for ever; but the bread withal which I shall give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. 52  The Jews therefore contended among themselves, saying, How can he give us this flesh to eat? 53  Jesus therefore said to them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Unless ye shall have eaten the flesh of the Son of man, and drunk his blood, ye have no life in yourselves. 54  He that eats my flesh and drinks my blood has life eternal, and I will raise him up at the last day: 55  for my flesh is truly food and my blood is truly drink. 56  He that eats my flesh and drinks my blood dwells in me and I in him. 57  As the living Father has sent me and I live on account of the Father, he also who eats me shall live also on account of me. 58  This is the bread which has come down out of heaven. Not as the fathers ate and died: he that eats this bread shall live for ever. 59  These things he said in [the] synagogue, teaching in Capernaum.

The Words of Eternal Life

60  Many therefore of his disciples having heard [it] said, This word is hard; who can hear it? 61  But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples murmur concerning this, said to them, Does this offend you? 62  If then ye see the Son of man ascending up where he was before? 63  It is the Spirit which quickens, the flesh profits nothing: the words which I have spoken unto you are spirit and are life. 64  But there are some of you who do not believe. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would deliver him up. 65  And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no one can come to me unless it be given to him from the Father. 66  From that [time] many of his disciples went away back and walked no more with him. 67  Jesus therefore said to the twelve, Will ye also go away? 68  Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast words of life eternal; 69  and we have believed and known that thou art the holy one of God. 70  Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you the twelve? and of you one is a devil. 71  Now he spoke of Judas [the son] of Simon, Iscariote, for he [it was who] should deliver him up, being one of the twelve.
