Why Did Jesus Say, I am the Bread of Life? (A Bible Study John 6:25-40) The day after Jesus fed 5,000 men with five loaves and two fish, he found himself surrounded by a large crowd of hungry people, demanding more food. Instead of giving them what they want, Jesus says, "do not work for the food that perishes but the food that endures to eternal life" (John 6:27). What is the food that Jesus is talking about? In short, himself. Jesus says, "I am the bread of life."
Today- in this second part of a Bible Study series on the I AM sayings of John's Gospel- we will take a closer look at what Jesus truly means when he says, "I am the bread of life."
