Bible Commentary for John 6:53

Wesley's Notes for John 6:53


6:53 Unless ye eat the flesh of the Son of man - Spiritually: unless ye draw continual virtue from him by faith. Eating his flesh is only another expression for believing.


People's Bible Notes for John 6:53


Joh 6:53 Except ye eat of the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood. Appropriate these by faith. Whosoever by faith trusts in the death of Christ and is "baptized into his death" (Ro 6:3), spiritually partakes of the body and blood of Christ. So does he also who eats in loving remembrance of him the emblems that represent his body and blood. Joh 6:63 shows that his words must be taken in a spiritual rather than a literal sense.

    The bible is meant to be read by going to where you

    are lead .. a scripture came to me when i was a new christian... in church.. then it just spoke to me as if it was in charge not necessarily the one at the pulpit.

    Greetings, Tiffany.

    The Bible IS meant to be read, studied, meditated on, discussed, acted on and obeyed. And probably many other action verbs.

    It is The Word of God. Jesus said, "If ye love me, keep my commandments."Joh 14:15. How can you know what His commandments are unless you read the whole thing?

    The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul:

    the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

    The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart:

    the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.

    The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever:

    the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

    More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold:

    sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

    Moreover by them is thy servant warned:

    and in keeping of them there is great reward.

    Who can understand his errors?

    cleanse thou me from secret faults.

    Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins;

    let them not have dominion over me:

    then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

    Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

    Psalm 19:7-14

    If you got a love letter from your fianc, would you just open it up and randomly read a sentence and then put it away until you wanted another shot of love? No! I can tell that you're excited about becoming Mrs. Basile Johns III, and have devoured every bit of knowledge about what he likes and doesn't like and dozens, neigh scores if not hundreds of things about him that enchant you.

    What of The Love Letter, so to speak, from God, that tells of His love for us and the extent to which He has and is going and what He is preparing for us and how He wants you and me to be ambassadors for Him. Can you imagine that?!

    Read it every day not just going to where you are lead, using it like a ouija board.

    Hi Tiffany...but to read the Word of God daily is such a privilege and is so refreshing to your spirit! Don't miss out! Everyday I learn something new, or understand something that I did not before. Our Lord IS the Word, and we are to take Him in daily for He is the bread of life...is He not? God Bless and keep.

    Brothers, this was a wonderful discussion! Very thought provoking. I can hardly wait to return to it and pick up my own study on the topic as I have yet to solidify my own beliefs on the rapture. Thank you and God Bless you!

    Abraham beget Issac ?who said this
  • Abraham39s Two Sons - in Reply on John 6:53
    The Torah and the Bible have recorded Gods dealings with Abraham, Sarah; Hagar; Ishmael and Isaac.

    In the King James Version of the Bible: chapters 16-21 are recorded the covenants and the blessings on Abraham's seed: Isaac and Ishmael.

    Ishmael: see Genesis 17:18-26, 17:24-26

    Genesis 16:11-16, Genesis 21:12-18

    The Covenant of the Land of Canaan (Israel)

    Genesis 17:7-8

    God never meant for history to have experienced all the wars fought in the Middle East. He made Covenants with both of Abraham's sons. Through Ishmael was gained wealth, lands, commerce with powerful princes and kings descended through Abraham.

    God had already decided to bless the son born between Abraham and Sarah, even before Ishmael was born. In Gods permissive will, He allowed it; and later gave a covenant inheritance to Ishmael.

    Gods Perfect Will was continued through Isaac and his descendants.

    He's God. We don't get to tell Him how to bless his people. The Bible says of God: I change NOT.

    God chose every human being that was directly involved in producing THE MESSIAH, that would save all mankind that would receive Him.

    This is all going to bring everyone on earth, to the Book of Revelation. I know, not everyone accepts it, but it's still there like a gigantic signpost at the end of this road we're all on. It's not going away. Even if we burn all the books and launch all the nukes; it will still be there. That is not me talking; it is the words of the Bible; carried and protected, throughout history. Also known as the Dead Sea scrolls.

    Jesus was, and is the Messiah. He wants all sons and daughters of Abraham's seed to trust their mortal and eternal lives with the promised Messiah. All must have their names recorded in his Book of Life. (Read Revelation)

    For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes on him shall not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world ,but that the world through him might be saved.

    is the mark of the beast a real mark?
