And having found him on the other side of the lake, they said to him, Rabbi, when didst thou come hither? Jesus answered them and said, Truly, truly do I say to you, Ye seek me, not because ye saw signs, but because ye ate of the loaves, and were filled. Labor not for the food that perisheth, but for the food that endureth to everlasting life, which the Son of man giveth to you; for on him hath the Father set his seal, even God. Then they said to him, What are we to do, that we may work the works of God? Jesus answered and said to them, This is the work of God, that ye believe in him whom he sent. They said therefore to him, What sign doest thou, that we may see, and believe thee? What dost thou work? Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, as it is written, "He gave them bread from heaven to eat." Jesus therefore said to them, Truly, truly do I say to you, Moses hath not given you the bread from heaven; but my Father is giving you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is that which is coming down from heaven, and giving life to the world. They said therefore to him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. Jesus therefore said to them, I am the bread of life; he that cometh to me will not hunger; and he that believeth in me will never thirst. But I said to you, that ye have even seen, and do not believe. All that the Father giveth me will come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out; for I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the will of him that sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up in the last day. For this is the will of my Father, that every one who looketh on the Son and believeth in him, shall have everlasting life; and I will raise him up in the last day. The Jews therefore murmured about him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven; and they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, one whose father and mother we know? How is it then that this man saith, I have come down from heaven? Jesus therefore answered and said to them, Murmur not among yourselves. No one can come to me, unless the Father, who sent me, draw him: and I will raise him up in the last day. It is written in the prophets, "And they shall all be taught of God." Every one that hath heard the Father, and hath learnt from him, cometh to me. Not that any one hath seen the Father, but he who is from God; he hath seen the Father. Truly, truly do I say to you, He that believeth hath everlasting life. I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and died. This is the bread which is coming down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eat of my bread, he will live for ever. Yea, and the bread which I will give for the life of the world is my flesh. The Jews therefore contended with one another, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? Jesus therefore said to them, Truly, truly do I say to you, Unless ye eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood hath everlasting life; and I will raise him up in the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father sent me, and I live by reason of the Father; so he that eateth me, he also shall live by reason of me. This is the bread which came down from heaven; not as the fathers ate, and died; he that eateth this bread will live for ever. These things he said in a synagogue, while teaching in Capernaum. Many therefore of his disciples, when they heard this, said, This teaching is hard; who can listen to it? Jesus therefore knew within himself that his disciples were murmuring about this, and said to them, Doth this offend you? What then if ye behold the Son of man ascending where he was before? It is the spirit which maketh alive; the flesh profiteth nothing. The words which I have spoken to you are spirit, and are life. But there are some of you who do not believe. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that did not believe, and who it was that would betray him. And he said, For this cause I have told you, that no one can come to me, unless it hath been given him from the Father.

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of man be lifted up that every one who believeth in him may have everlasting life. For God so loved the world, that he gave the only begotten Son, that every one who believeth in him may not perish, but may have everlasting life. read more.
For God sent not the Son into the world to condemn the world, but that through him the world might be saved. He that believeth in him is not condemned; he that believeth not hath already been condemned, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

And great multitudes were going with him; and he turned and said to them, If any one cometh to me, and hateth not his father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

For which of you, intending to build a tower, doth not sit down first and count the cost, whether he hath the means to finish it? lest haply when he hath laid a foundation, and is not able to finish, all that behold begin to make sport of him, saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish. Or what king, setting out to give battle to another king, will not first sit down and consider whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand? Else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an embassy, and asketh conditions of peace. So likewise, whoever of you doth not forsake all that he hath, cannot be my disciple.


Then they said to him, What are we to do, that we may work the works of God? Jesus answered and said to them, This is the work of God, that ye believe in him whom he sent.

And lo! one came to him and said, Teacher, what good thing shall I do, that I may have everlasting life? And he said to him, Why dost thou ask me concerning what is good? There is but one who is good. But if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. Which? saith he. And Jesus said, These: "Thou shalt not kill; Thou shalt not commit adultery; Thou shalt not steal; Thou shalt not bear false witness; read more.
Honor thy father and thy mother;" and, "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." The young man saith to him, All these things have I kept; in what am I still wanting? Jesus said to him, If thou wilt be perfect, go, sell what thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.

Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and he found him, and said, Dost thou believe in the Son of man?


And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good teacher, what shall I do to inherit everlasting life? And Jesus said to him, Why dost thou call me good? None is good but one, that is, God. Thou knowest the commandments: "Do not commit adultery; Do not kill; Do not steal; Do not bear false witness; Honor thy father and thy mother." read more.
And he said, All these have I kept from my youth. And Jesus hearing this said to him, One thing thou still lackest: sell all that thou hast, and distribute to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me. But when he heard this, he became very sorrowful; for he was very rich. And Jesus seeing him said, How hardly do they that have riches enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. And those who heard this said, Who then can be saved?

Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly do I say to thee, Unless a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith to him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter his mothers womb a second time, and be born? Jesus answered, Truly, truly do I say to thee, Unless a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. read more.
That which is born of the flesh, is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit, is spirit. Marvel not that I said to thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it will; and thou hearest the sound thereof, but knowest not whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Nicodemus answered and said to him, How can these things be? Jesus answered and said to him, Art thou the teacher of Israel, and understandest not these things? Truly, truly do I say to thee, We speak that which we know, and testify that which we have seen; and ye receive not our testimony. If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how will ye believe if I tell you heavenly things?
