“Then Jesus declared, ‘I am the
bread of life. He who comes to me
will never go hungry. And he who
believes in me will never be thirsty.”
John 6:35 (NIV)
After Jesus fed the 5,000 the people couldn’t find Him. When the people caught up with Jesus, they asked him how he had gotten to that place. As usual, the Lord saw through their words and saw their hearts. He knew they only wanted Him because he gave them physical bread.
His response“I am the Bread of Life” told them they misunderstood what Jesus meant.
Jesus came to earth to save us from our sins and to show us how to live. Through the Holy Spirit, He sustains us.
William Barclay in his Daily Study Bible (John Vol1, pps 216217) explains Jesus’ name as reflecting His character.
