People's Bible Notes for John 6:70


Joh 6:70 One of you is a devil. A demon, in the original; diabolical, or under the influence of the evil one. Notice in this remarkable discourse the progressive thought: (1) The Lord announces the Bread of God that giveth life to the world (Joh 6:33). (2) He declares that he is the Bread of Life (Joh 6:48,50). (3) The Bread of life must be eaten by partaking of his flesh and blood (Joh 6:51-56). (4) This is done spiritually, by the spirit feeding upon his life and words (Joh 6:63).
