SUMMARY OF JOHN 6:41-51
The Jews were unsure of Jesus calling himself the bread of life because they grew up with him. How could he have come down from heaven? Jesus tells them to stop grumbling. All who come to him were chosen by the Father and those who come will be raised. Anyone can eat the bread from heaven that Jesus offers and live.

Fun Fact: Six times Jesus says he ‘came down from heaven’ (6:33, 38, 41, 50, 51, 58).
Accepting Jesus as from heaven is too much for those who knew Jesus as a child growing up. In addition, they expect someone to emerge from the clouds as their Savior.
The Jews believed because they were born Jews that they get to heaven automatically. Jesus says that God chooses them to believe in him instead. Heaven is not automatic.
Those who come will have everlasting life. Jesus quoted from Isaiah 54:13 saying then they will be taught by God.
If you are taught by God, you will believe in Jesus because they are one in the same.
No one else in the Bible has ever made claims of being God’s son and offering everlasting life. This is why the people are so confused.
Jesus is necessary for spiritual life as bread is for physical life.
The manna in the wilderness was for physical needs. Jesus is the bread of life and is everlasting.
The bread is his flesh/life that he will give to save the world.
