60 On hearing it, many of his disciples said, "This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?"
60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
60 When many of his disciples heard it, they said, "This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?"
60 Many among his disciples heard this and said, "This is tough teaching, too tough to swallow."
60 Therefore many of His disciples, when they heard this, said, "This is a hard saying; who can understand it?"
60 Many of his disciples said, "This is very hard to understand. How can anyone accept it?"

Commentary on John 6:60-65
(Read John 6:60-65)
The human nature of Christ had not before been in heaven, but being God and man, that wondrous Person was truly said to have come down from heaven. The Messiah's kingdom was not of this world; and they were to understand by faith, what he had said of a spiritual living upon him, and his fulness. As without the soul of man the flesh is of no value, so without the quickening Spirit of God all forms of religion are dead and worthless. He who made this provision for our souls, alone can teach us these things, and draw us unto Christ, that we may live by faith in him. Let us apply to Christ, thankful that it is declared that every one who is willing to come unto him shall be made welcome.
