Discussion for John 6:68

  • Maurice Cloete for verse 68
    It means that Jesus requires us to be faithful, when we truly believe that He is the Messiah, and we 've confessed Him as Lord and Savior, for where or to whom can we turn to but Christ Jesus, and follow Him by the leading of the Blessed Holy Spirit, to attain or have eternal life? No one else but Him, the incarnate Son Of God.
  • Kim Mc Donald for verse 68
    my God is my strength and that is what i 'm standing on
  • Drew Laudie for verse 68
    The meaning of Thou hast the words of eternal life is when The Savior appears to you and tells you that you now have eternal life see 2nd Peter 1 10
  • Fortune for verse 68
    I am realy touched by this chapter. It is regretable that many of Jesus' desciples left him when they failed to understand the eating of flesh and the drinking of Jesus' blood!!
    Nevertheless, I am much encouraged by Simon Peter's answer on 6v68, when he indicated that they were there to stay;why? Because Jesus alone has taught them the words of eternal life and they believed Him.Even me today,I am here to stay,nomatter what mr devil do or say concerning my life!!!!! No, I am here to stay-Amen and Amen!!!!
