Jesus declared “I Am the Bread of Life” 耶稣宣告“我是生命的粮”


25 When they found him on the other side of the lake, they asked him, “Rabbi, when did you get here?” 26 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw the signs I performed but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. 27 Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.” 28 Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?” 29 Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.” 30 So they asked him, “What sign then will you give that we may see it and believe you? What will you do? 31 Our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written: ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’ 32 Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” 34 “Sir,” they said, “always give us this bread.” 35 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.36 But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. 37 All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. 38 For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. 39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me,but raise them up at the last day. 40 For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.” 41 At this the Jews there began to grumble about him because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.” 42 They said, “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, ‘I came down from heaven’?” 43 “Stop grumbling among yourselves,” Jesus answered. 44 “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day. 45 It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who has heard the Father and learned from him comes to me. 46 No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father. 47 Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, yet they died. 50 But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which anyone may eat and not die. 51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” 52 Then the Jews began to argue sharply among themselves, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” 53 Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. 54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. 55 For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.56 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them. 57 Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me. 58 This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your ancestors ate manna and died, but whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.” 59 He said this while teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum. 60 On hearing it, many of his disciples said, “This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?” 61 Aware that his disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them, “Does this offend you? 62 Then what if you see the Son of Man ascend to where he was before! 63 The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life. 64 Yet there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus had known from the beginning which of them did not believe and who would betray him. 65 He went on to say, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled them.” 66 From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him. 67 “You do not want to leave too, do you?” Jesus asked the Twelve. 68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69 We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.” 70 Then Jesus replied, “Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!” 71 (He meant Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, who, though one of the Twelve, was later to betray him.)

25 他们在湖的对岸找到了耶稣,就问他:“拉比,你是什么时候到这里来的?” 26 耶稣回答说:“我确确实实地告诉你们:你们找我,并不是因为看见了神迹,而是因为你们吃饼吃饱了。 27 不要为那会腐败的食物做工,而要为那存留到永生的食物做工。这食物就是人子要给你们的,因为人子是父神所印证的。” 28 他们问:“我们应该做什么,才算做神的工作呢?” 29 耶稣回答说:“信神所派来的那一位,就是做神的工作。” 30 他们就问:“那么,你行个什么神迹,好让我们看了就可以信你呢?你可以做什么呢? 31 我们的祖先在旷野吃了吗哪,正如经上所记:‘他把从天上来的粮赐给他们吃。’ 32 耶稣对他们说:“我确确实实地告诉你们:那从天上来的粮不是摩西赐给你们的,而是我父把从天上来的真粮赐给了你们。 33 要知道,神的粮就是从天上降下来、赐生命给世人的那一位。” 34 他们就对耶稣说:“主啊,请你时常把这粮赐给我们!” 35 耶稣对他们说:“我就是生命的粮。到我这里来的人,绝不饥饿;信我的人,永不干渴。 36 但是我告诉过你们,你们虽然看到了我,还是不信。 37 凡是父赐给我的人,都会到我这里来,而到我这里来的人,我绝不丢弃, 38 因为我从天上降下来,不是要行自己的意思,而是要行那派我来者的意思。 39 那派我来者[i]的旨意,就是要我不失去他赐给我的任何人,而且要我在末日使他复活。 40 要知道,我父的旨意正是:所有看见子而信他的人都得到永恒的生命,并且在末日,我将要使他复活。” 41 这时候,一些犹太人因为耶稣说‘我是从天上降下来的粮’,就私下议论他, 42 并说:“这不就是约瑟的儿子耶稣吗?我们不都认识他的父母吗?现在他怎么说‘我是从天上降下来的’呢?” 43 耶稣就对他们说:“你们不要彼此议论了。 44 如果不是派我来的父引领他,没有人能到我这里来;到我这里来的,在末日我还要使他复活。 45 先知书上记着:‘他们都将成为神所教导的人。’任何人听了并领会了从父而来的教导,就会到我这里来。46 这并不是说,有谁看到父;只有从神而来的那一位,他才看到父。 47 “我确确实实地告诉你们:信我[l]的人,就有永恒的生命。 48 我就是生命的粮。49 你们的祖先在旷野吃了吗哪,还是死了。 50 那从天上降下来、让人吃了而不死的粮,就在这里。 51 我就是从天上降下来的生命的粮。人如果吃了这粮,就将活着,直到永远。我要赐的粮就是我的肉身,是为了世人的生命所赐的。” 52 于是那些犹太人彼此争论,说:“这个人怎么能把自己的肉身给我们吃呢?” 53 耶稣说:“我确确实实地告诉你们:如果你们不吃人子的肉,不喝人子的血,你们里面就没有生命。 54 吃我肉、喝我血的人,就有永恒的生命,在末日我还要使他复活; 55 因为我的肉是真食物,我的血是真饮物。 56 吃我肉、喝我血的人,住在我里面,我也住在他里面。 57 永生的父怎样差派了我,我又因父而活,照样,以我为食的人也将因我而活。 58 这才是从天上降下来的粮,不像吗哪。你们的祖先吃过吗哪还是死了,而吃这粮的人就将活着,直到永远。” 59 这些话是耶稣在迦百农教导人的时候,在会堂里说的。60 他的门徒当中有许多人听了,就说:“这话实在严厉,谁能听呢?” 61 耶稣自己里面知道他的门徒们为这话私下议论,就对他们说:“这话绊倒你们吗? 62 所以,如果你们看见人子升到他原先所在的地方,你们会怎么样呢? 63 赐人生命的是灵,肉体没有什么用。我对你们说的话就是灵,就是生命。 64 然而你们当中有一些不信的人。”原来,耶稣从起初就知道哪些人不信,也知道哪一个人要出卖他。 65 耶稣又说:“所以我告诉过你们:如果不是蒙父所赐,没有人能到我这里来。” 66 从此耶稣的门徒中有许多人离开回到背后的事上,不再与他同行。 67 耶稣就对十二使徒说:“你们也不会想离开吧?” 68 西门彼得回答:“主啊,你有永恒生命的话语,我们还去归从谁呢? 69 我们已经相信,也知道你就是神的那位圣者。” 70 耶稣对他们说:“我不是拣选了你们十二使徒吗?可是你们当中有一个是魔鬼。”71 耶稣说的是加略西门的儿子犹大;这个人虽然是十二使徒中的一个,后来却要出卖耶稣。

Opposition to Jesus‘ teaching from the Jews, His disciples, and a different response from the Twelve. 耶稣的教导受到犹太人和众门徒的对抗,甚至祂所钟爱的十二个门徒都有不同的反应。
