The Evangeliad (19:20-23)


Section 19:20-23 (corresponding to John 6:26-29)

"Truly I say to you," Jesus replied,
"You seek me not for miraculous signs,
Which you saw me do on the hillside--no,
But because you ate your fill of the loaves.

Don't strive for perishable food such as this,
But for food that endures, food that I give:
This food is eternal life from the Son,
On whom is God's seal, his chosen one."

They answered, "We want to do the works of God!
But how do we do them? Where do we start?"
"This is the work of God," Jesus said,
"To put your faith in the one he has sent."
