As the discourse on the bread reaches its end, many of the disciples of Christ take offence at His message. In response Christ asks the twelve if they too wish to go away. The twelve disciples, through Peter, answer that they have no one else to go to and acknowledge that the Lord Jesus has the very words of life.
Great Sermon! Unfortunately I could not hear your sermon in person. Praise be to God that we have such technology that your sermons are still able to be heard by anyone, anywhere.
Great Sermon! Will you go away? (a) Many NT Jews would have been stunned to hear Jesus advise them to â€śeat My flesh and drink My bloodâ€ť (John 6:53) since this was forbidden by OT law. (b) The large party that heard Jesus require them to â€śeat My flesh and drink My blood,â€ť â€śwent away and returned no more.â€ť (John 6:66). (c) Though many disciples departed from Jesus, He didnâ€™t beckon them to clarify their understanding of John 6:53. (d) Thus, Jesus was meaning â€śeat My flesh and drink My bloodâ€ť (John 6:53) to be understood literally. (e) Isnâ€™t one who also rejects Jesus and won't "eat My flesh and drink My blood," actually denying Christ and losing his life? May we never go away from Christ. Thank you Pastor Eshelman!
Great Sermon! Some call it intense...I call it the Gospel. Challenging question for believers. I thank God that Jesus Christ has already given the answer. He has the Words of Eternal Life.
Thanks Pastor Nathan
