Second Reading: John 6:22-40
22The next day (A)
the crowd that stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other small boat there, except one, and that Jesus (B)
had not entered with His disciples into the boat, but that His disciples had gone away alone.
23There came other small boats from (C)
Tiberias near to the place where they ate the bread after the (D)
had given thanks.
24So when the crowd saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they themselves got into the small boats, and (F)
came to Capernaum seeking Jesus.
25When they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, "(G)
Rabbi, when did You get here?"
Words to the People
26Jesus answered them and said, "Truly, truly, I say to you, you (H)
seek Me, not because you saw (I)
signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled.
27"Do not (J)
work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to (K)
eternal life, which (L)
the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, God, (M)
has set His seal."
28Therefore they said to Him, "What shall we do, so that we may work the works of God?"
29Jesus answered and said to them, "This is (N)
the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He (O)
30So they said to Him, "(P)
What then do You do for a (Q)
sign, so that we may see, and believe You? What work do You perform?
Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, '(S)
HE GAVE THEM BREAD OUT OF HEAVEN TO EAT.'"
32Jesus then said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven.
33"For the bread of God is [a]
that which (T)
comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world."
34Then they said to Him, "Lord, always (U)
give us this bread."
35Jesus said to them, "(V)
I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me (W)
will never thirst.
I said to you that you have seen Me, and yet do not believe.
All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.
I have come down from heaven, (AA)
not to do My own will, but (AB)
the will of Him who (AC)
39"This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of (AD)
all that He has given Me I (AE)
lose nothing, but (AF)
raise it up on the last day.
40"For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who (AG)
beholds the Son and (AH)
believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will (AI)
raise him up on the last day." Footnotes:
