Bible Questions Answered:
“...how do we eat Jesus?...”

John 6:47-56 KJV
47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me hath everlasting Life.
48 I am that Bread Of Life.
49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.

(We will resume this scripture in a moment.)
Jesus is speaking metaphorically.
A figure of speech in which a term or phrase is applied to something to which it is not literally applicable in order to suggest a resemblance, as in “A mighty fortress is our God.”.
Jesus, of course was not a loaf of bread, He was using a metaphor, to refer to what takes place spiritually, in the heart and life of a believer.
Now that having been said, whatever the bread is, notice that Jesus says the bread eater does not die (verse 50).
Do Christian people die, and have they since the very beginning? Yes!
Then this is another proof that our Lord was speaking metaphorically, of a spiritual happening.
Now that we know, this is how The Lord is speaking, let us read on.
and The Bread that I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this Man give us His flesh to eat?
53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of The Son Of Man, and drink His blood, ye have no life in you.
54 Whoso eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, hath eternal Life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
55 For My flesh is meat indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.
56 He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, dwelleth in Me, and I in him.
(Alright Pastor, Jesus is speaking metaphorically, but what is he saying then?)
Again our Lord, uses metaphors to express spiritually what a follower of His must do.
Just as we eat and drink for our bodies, to sustain them, so too we must spiritually eat and drink to sustain our soul.
What does this scripture mean, it means that we must constantly and as necessarily, nourish our soul with The Word, presence and power of The Lord, so that it may live forever, and Jesus says, it will!
