TODAY (White) Dt 8:2-3,14b-16a; 1Cor 10:16-17; Jn 6:51-58

NEXT WEEK (Red) Acts 12:1-11; 2 Tm 4:6-8, 17-18; Mt 16:13-19

Jesus “declaration that he is the “bread that comes down from heaven” grounds his further declaration that those “who eat this bread will live forever.” Heaven is a state of forever; those who eat the One come down from heaven will be like he is—in a state of forever. This lofty promise is not a dream. It is real because Jesus himself has passed from life to eternal glory. His humanity has risen and now lives forever. It is this risen for humanity which is our nourishment for eternal life.
