    I'm glad you posted this thread; it's something I've wondered about myself. I know I needed to work on my own, personal relationship with God before I began looking for a church, so I would be able to resist false teachings, should I run into any in my search.

    These quotes of our Lord were given in two entirely different contexts. In the one, he is being tempted to turn stones into bread, and in the other he is giving a teaching on the Eucharist. The meaning of the passage from John 6 becomes crystal clear when He says over the bread at the last Supper, "This is my body," and over the wine, "This is my blood."

    Keep in mind too, that this was at the passover dinner, in which the Jews were to partake of a lamb without blemish, not only a type of Our Lord, but a type of our Lord in the Eucharist.

    Yet it is true, that all these eucharistic teachings are words that come from the mouth of God, by which you may live. He is in fact the Word of God made flesh, which if you eat will give you eternal life, for not by bread alone does man live, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.
