Show Notes

After the crowd began to leave, Jesus turns to his twelve apostles and asks,  “Do you want to leave, too?” In this question, we get a glimpse into the humanness of Jesus – he really wanted to know if they were going to leave. Peter’s answer is still the right answer today: “You have the words of eternal life.” Only Jesus allows us to boldly access God’s throne of grace (Hebrews 4:16). Later in John’s Gospel, Jesus himself will affirm that “no one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). Peter’s answer also highlights the progressive nature of following Jesus: “We have come to believe ...” This didn’t happen immediately or as the result of a single event.

Passage: John 6:60-71
