[35] Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. [36] But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. [37] All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. [38] For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me. [39] And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. [40] For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.”

 

I AM the Bread of life – v. 35

I am make all things new.

  • I bring the OT and NT together
  • Fulfill the Law

 

  • Manna – Jesus
  • Moses – Jesus (True Redeemer)
  • Temple – Jesus (where God meets man)
  • Jacobs latter – Jesus (true stairway to heaven)
  • Bronze serpent – Jesus (lifted up on the cross)

 

 

I bring complete fulfillment, redemption, and new life

  • Bread is necessary for life
  • For all (bread a common staple)
  • Daily need (Give us our daily bread. Matt 6)
  • Must be taken in. The word.  We read, study, taken in.  (Matt. 4:4 Man shall not live on bread alone, but every word that comes from the mouth of God.)

 

  • Whoever comes to me
    • Shall not hunger

 

  • Whoever believes
    • Will never thirst

 

This is God’s eternal plan – vv. 36-40

 

Because all that the Father gives me will come to me.

  • The work of the Holy Spirit through the Gospel

 

Whoever comes to me I will never cast out

  • Adopted into the family of God. Loving, Nourishing, Cherishing.

 

This is God’s Will (plan)

  • IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED!

 

I should lose nothing that He has given

  • Hold, Protect, Security and Perseverance

 

Raise it up on the last day

  • Keeping the End in mind. Life in the midst of death

 

This is the will of the Father

  • IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED!

 

Whoever looks and believes

  • Believe on, Come to, Trust in, Follow after, Live for

 

Will have eternal life

  • Live now and Life for all eternity

 

Be raised up

  • What I say… will take place. Manna was temporary.  MY BREAD IS FOREVER!
