People's Bible Notes for John 6:35


Joh 6:35 Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life. They ask for this bread. He answers, it is here; I am that bread. The work of God is that you receive it by believing upon him whom he hath sent. He that cometh shall not hunger; he that believeth shall not thirst. It is thus shown that faith is the power that brings us to Christ. We come to him by believing.

    I really loue the fact that the Authorized KING JAMES BIBLE OF 1611 is still available for us who really do appreciate the words of the One and only true Liuing God,Yeshua HaMashiach. and this version is the only version that I trvst and I especially like the fact that the spelling is different, due to the Archaic words the spelling. why continue being like every1 else wen it comes to the spelling of words : start thinking outside the box . I have found my new writing and spelling method : thank you to the creators of this very great website. I loue you all.

    Each and every day of my life, I will forever seek the bread of life. God the father through his son Jesus Christ. For he has changed my whole life!
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Jesus is the bread of life and we must keep eating the bread for a guarantee of eternal life. John 6: 35: I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. So we should keep coming to Him daily for the satisfaction of our spiritual hunger and thirst.
