98.How can this man give us his flesh to eat (John 6:52).
When the figurative meets the literal, things get a bit messy. Here, it seems clear that the Jews are determined not to understand what Jesus is saying. This is the nature of faithlessness. When one rejects Christ, there comes a point where their minds become closed to perceiving His message of hope. They have rejected until their resistance crystallizes and their responses turn to scorn. Those who reject God fail to realize that they are on a path as well–a path that leads them further and further from ver perceiving the hope He offers.
