(Rom 10:17) So then faith cometh by hearing [understanding], and hearing by the word [Gk: rhema] of God.



(John 6:28-31) Then said they [the people] unto him [Jesus Christ], What shall we do, that we might work the works [Gk: toils; acts: deeds] of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work [Gk: toils; acts: deeds] [the purpose, intent] of God, that ye believe on [Gk: to have faith, credit, trust] him [Jesus Christ] whom he [God] hath sent. They said therefore unto him, What sign [Gk: indication: miracle, token, wonder] [What supernatural sign?] shewest thou then [to us], that we may see [they were walking by sight, not by faith], and believe thee? what dost thou work? Our fathers did eat manna [Heb: a whatness] in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat [i.e., to meditate upon]

1.    (Exo 16:31) And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna [“a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost (frozen dew) on the ground” Exo 16:14]: and it was like coriander seed [used to flavor or garnish foods], white; and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey

2.    (Psa 78:24,25) And [God] had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heavenMan did eat angels' food [i.e., the Thoughts of God, thereafter compressed down into seeds for our comprehension]: he [also] sent them [who “loatheth this light (Heb: insubstantial) bread” Num 21:5] meat [(flesh) quails] to the full.


(John 6:32-36) Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily [truth, truth], I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. For the bread [(food)] of God is he [Jesus Christ] which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life [versus death (togetherness versus separation)] unto the world [Gk: “cosmos” (universe)]. Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore [Gk: always] [forever more] give us this bread. And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life [versus death]: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst [he shall have no physical bodily needs – because he is a “thought” of God]. But I said unto you [I am the “sign” you seek, the Seed of Thought (of God)], That ye also have seen me [physically (naturally)], and [yet you still] believe not


(John 6:37-40) All [the spirits] that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all [the spirits (angels)] which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it [i.e., the thought] up again [repair, resurrect and restore it] at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day

1.    (John 3:14) And as Moses lifted up the serpent [symbol of sin] in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man [the body of Jesus Christ] be lifted up [unto the world (cosmos, universe) Mark 16:15]

2.    (Num 21:4-9) And they journeyed [from Egypt] from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass [go around] the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged [Heb: troubled, vexed] because of the way [Heb: a road (as trodden); fig. a course of life or mode of action]. And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul [our natural mind] loatheth [Heb: be disgusted: abhors, is vexed by] this light [Heb: insubstantial] [Dict.: not real, imaginary; not solid or firm; weak or flimsy] bread [i.e., this “manna”]. And the LORD sent fiery [Heb: posionous] serpents [sinful fallen angels (fallen thoughts)] among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole [Heb: a flag; gen. a signal, fig. a token: banner, sign]: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it [“attentively, expectantly, with a steady and absorbing gaze” Amplif. Bible], shall live [versus die, be separated]. And Moses made a serpent of brass [Heb: filthiness] [i.e., sin], and put it upon a pole [which we may infer had a wooden cross-member (i.e., the cross) to support the hard twisted serpent of brass], and it came to pass, that if a serpent [i.e., sin] had bitten any man [thereby injecting the serpent’s poison, unto death], when he [the man] beheld [Heb: looked intently at, by implic. to regard with pleasure, favor or care: considered] the serpent of brass, he lived [versus died]


(John 6:41-44) The Jews then murmured [Gk: grumbled] [complained, moaned, bellyached] at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven. And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven? Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur [Gk: grumble] [complain, moan, bellyache] not among yourselves. No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw [Gk: drag] him [up like a struggling fish being “raised up” caught in the net of God’s Word (John 21:11), i.e., Lot “lingered” (Gen 19:16) from being “raised up”]: and I will raise him up [drag him up into Heaven] at the last day


(John 6:45-51) It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God [Isa 54:13]. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned [ref. Rom 10:17] of the Father, cometh unto me. Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life [versus death]I am that bread of life [versus death]. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not dieI am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world [Gk: “cosmos” (universe)]I am [Jesus Christ] the living bread [food, nourishment, supernatural sustenance] which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh [1], which I will give for the life of the world [Gk “cosmos” (universe)]

1.    (John 1:14) And the Word [Gk: logos] [of God, the Bible] was made flesh [in Jesus Christ], and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 


(John 6:52-56) The Jews [unbelievers] therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat [consume] the flesh [logos: seed] of the Son of man, and drink [consume] his blood [rhema: fruit (revelations)] [i.e., God’s Thoughts that emerge (are birthed) out of the logos flesh], ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh [logos (seed)], and drinketh my blood [rhema (fruit); revelations)], hath eternal life [versus death]; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh [takes in, reads the Bible], and drinketh my blood [understands one or more of the revelations of the Bible], dwelleth in me, and I in him



(Matt 26:26-28) And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body [Gk: slave]. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission [Gk: pardon: forgiveness] of sins
