JESUS IS THE BREAD OF LIFE RESEARCH
WHO OR WHAT IS THE LIVING BREAD
Let us begin, shall we? Have you ever thought about how symbolic bread is?
What about how many things there are in the Bible about bread? Well,
after this story, you should have a pretty good idea of how important
bread really is.
The very first time bread is mentioned in the Bible
is when God sentenced Adam (man) and told him that by the sweat of his
face he'd eat bread until the day he dies (Genesis
3:19). Bread was the first
thing Abraham offered to Jesus and the two Angels of the Lord when
they visited him (Genesis
18:5). The feast of
unleavened bread is an important part of the Passover celebration
reminding the Hebrews that there wasn't time to wait for their bread
dough to rise as God brought them out of slavery in Egypt (Genesis
12:39). The Lord rained
bread from Heaven, called manna, for the children of Israel to eat for
40 years in the wilderness on their journey from Egypt to the Promised
16:4, 35). David referred
to manna as Angel's food (Psalms
78:25). Moses told the
children of Israel that man doesn't live by bread alone, but by every
word that proceeds out of the mouth of the Lord (Deuteronomy
8:3). In the Tabernacle,
and in the Temple, there was a table with bread called showbread that
was set continually before the mercy seat (Exodus
2 Chronicles 2:4).
Bread was used as a symbol in a man's dream that the sword of Gideon
would defeat Midian (Judges
7:13). God sent bread with
ravens to feed Elijah when he hid by the brook during 3½ years of
Kings 17:6). A psalm of
David says that bread strengthens man's heart (Psalms
104:15). The term bread is
used metaphorically in the Bible as the bread of idleness (Proverbs
31:27), the bread of
4:17), the bread of sorrow
127:2), the bread of tears
80:5), and the bread of
30:20). When the devil
tempted Jesus in the wilderness he told Jesus to command that
stones be made into bread (Matthew
4:3). In the Lord's
Prayer, Jesus said, Give us this day our daily bread (Matthew
6:11). And at the last
supper, Jesus took bread and said, Take, eat; this is my body (Matthew
JESUS IS THE BREAD OF LIFE MYSTERY
SPIRITUAL LIVING BREAD
Whew, and these
are just a few of the places in the Bible that bread is mentioned.
Recently we learned about Jesus turning 5 loaves of
bread and 2 fishes into enough to feed over 5,000. As you may recall,
Jesus told the people that the bread they ate wasn't the bread they
should strive for, but that they should desire food that lasts
eternally. Now we're going to find out a little more about that
everlasting food called the BREAD OF LIFE.
In the synagogue, as Jesus taught in Capernaum, the
people asked Him, What should we do in order to do the work of God?
Jesus answered, This is the work of God, that you believe in the one
who He sent. They didn't understand, so they asked Jesus to show them
what He meant. They said, Our fathers ate manna in the desert, like it
is written, He gave them bread from Heaven to eat. Jesus explained,
Moses didn't give you that bread from Heaven; but my Father gives you
the true bread from Heaven. The bread of God is the one who comes down
from Heaven and gives life to the world. Then they said to Jesus,
Lord, give us this bread forever. They just didn't grasp that Jesus
wasn't talking about the same kind of bread as they were. They
certainly believed that it was bread they ate the night before, after
all, they tasted it and were filled with it. But they didn't really
believe or understand that Jesus was saying He was the bread from
Jesus explained more, I am the bread of life.
Whoever comes to me will never hunger and who believes in me will
never thirst. You've seen me, and don't believe. Everything the Father
gives me, I will receive, and whoever comes to me, I will not forsake
in any way. I didn't come down from Heaven to do my own will, but to
do the will of God. And this is the will of God who sent me, that of
all (people) that He has given me, I should lose none, but should
raise it up again at the last day. And it's the will of God, that
everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him, may have everlasting
life: and I will raise him up at the last day. Jesus was talking about
the rapture when He said that, and you can read more about it in
1 Thessalonians 4:16.
JESUS IS THE BREAD OF LIFE
JESUS IS THE LIVING BREAD
Meanwhile, the Jews complained because Jesus said He
was the bread that came down from Heaven. Remember when we talked
about people not believing in prophets from their home country? Well,
there they went again, saying, Isn't this Jesus, the son of Joseph,
whose father and mother we all know? How can He go around saying, I
came down from Heaven? The moment that they waited centuries for, the
coming of the Messiah that they read about and yearned for was present
to them, but they couldn't recognize Him, even with all the miracles
they saw, and prophecies fulfilled, they still just couldn't accept
Jesus said to them, Don't murmur among yourselves.
No one can come to me, unless the Father calls him, and I'll raise him
up on the last day. It's written in the prophets, They will all be
taught about God. So, every man that has heard and learned about God,
comes to me. No man has seen the Father, except the one who is of God.
Truly I tell you, whoever believes in me has everlasting life. I am
that bread of life. Your fathers ate manna in the wilderness, and are
dead. This is the bread that comes down from Heaven, that a man can
eat and not die. I am the living bread which came down from Heaven. If
any man eats this bread, he will live for ever, and the bread that I
will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
The Jews argued among themselves, saying, How can
this man give us His flesh to eat? Jesus answered them, Truly, I say
to you, Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His
blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my
blood, has eternal life, and I'll raise him up at the last day. My
flesh is truly meat and my blood is truly drink. Whoever eats my flesh
and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him. As the living God has
sent me, and I live because of the Father, Whoever eats my flesh will
live because of me. This is that bread that came down from Heaven, not
like your fathers ate manna, and are dead, but whoever eats this bread
will live for ever.
Even many of the disciples, after Jesus explained
this for the third time, said among themselves, This is a complicated
thing, who can understand it? Jesus sensed in His Spirit that the
disciples were troubled about it and He said to them, Does this
confuse you? What if you see the Son of man ascend up where He was
before? It's the spirit that gives life, the flesh has no value. The
words that I speak to you are spirit, and they give life. But there
are some of you who don't believe. Jesus knew from the beginning who
would betray Him, so He said, That's why I said to you that no man can
come to me, unless the Father calls him.
From that time, many of Jesus' disciples went back
and didn't follow Him anymore. Jesus asked the twelve Apostles, Will
you also go away? Peter answered, Lord, who would we go to? You have
the words of eternal life. We believe and are sure that you're the
Christ, the Son of the living God. Jesus replied to them, Haven't I
chosen you twelve and one of you is a devil? He was talking about
Judas Iscariot, because he was the one who Jesus knew would betray Him
even though he was one of the twelve.
There's a really cool thing to notice about all of this bread talk.
Why did Jesus use bread as a symbol for Himself? Could it be because
He wanted us to be reminded of Him each time we eat? What if every
time you ate bread you're reminded that you're abiding in Jesus and
Jesus is abiding in you, what a difference that could make in your
life. Also, usually a meal is shared with other people. Maybe Jesus
chose bread as a symbol of Himself so that we would share Him with one
another often. Whatever the reason, it's time to recognize Him as your
BREAD OF LIFE.
