Bible commentary

Discussion for John 6:54

  • We are to observe the Lord's supper in that we continually ingest Christ into our lives and being. We are to allow Him to take over our lives by surrendering all to Him and allowing Him to work through us. We are the vessels but He is the one controlling and using the vessel for His purpose so that we show forth Him to others. Others see Him and not us even to the point that a stranger can walk up to us and say, "You are a Christian aren't you"? We should show forth that much difference that our very appearance shines Christ to others w/o a word spoken. We must decrease and He must increase. We have to empty ourselves of us and allow the Holy Spirit to fill us for the glory of God.
  • So many believe that Jesus meant this symbolically. In fact, it is the ONLY documented many of His followers leaving Him over something He said (John 6:66). If it was symbolic, then He surely would have said, "Remember those parables? This is one. Come on back!" Instead, He simply asked the apostles, "Will you leave too?"
  • Emanuel Harper for verse 54
    John 6:54 “Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”

    Interpretation: Whoso keepeth my commanments, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
