John 6:25-35

25 They found him on the other side. 'Rabbi,' they said, 'when did you come here?' 26 Jesus replied, 'In very truth I know that you have not come looking for me because you saw signs, but because you ate the bread and your hunger was satisfied. 27 You must work, not for this perishable food, but for the food that lasts, the food of eternal life.

'This food the Son of Man will give you, for he it is upon whom the Father has set the seal of his authority.' 28 'Then what must we do', they asked him, 'if we are to work as God would have us work?' 29 Jesus replied, 'This is the work that God requires: believe in the one whom he has sent.'

30 They said, 'What sign can you give us to see, so that we may believe you? What is the work you do? 31 Our ancestors had manna to eat in the desert, as Scripture says, "He gave them bread from heaven to eat."' 32 Jesus answered, 'I tell you this: the truth is, not that Moses gave you the bread from heaven, but that my Father gives you the real bread from heaven. 33 The bread that God gives comes down [Or: is he who comes down ...] from heaven and brings life to the world.' 34 They said to him, 'Sir, give us this bread now and always.' 35 Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me shall never be hungry, and whoever believes in me shall never be thirsty.
