93. I am the bread of life (John 6:35).
He gave them bread, but they said that Moses gave them more. He showed them that the bread Moses’ gave came from the Father and that the Father had now given them the Bread of Life. And then He said that He was that bread. So they were left confused. When we mix the literal and the symbolic, those who refuse to believe cannot see. Those who think literal bread will satisfy them remain unwilling to engage something more. They cannot see past their desire for more of what they know. If they could, they might begin to recognize that there is more than what they’ve known. They just wanted another day of bread, and it caused them to miss what could fill them for eternity.
