The Evangeliad (19:46-48)

Section 19:46-48 (corresponding to John 6:52-54)

Now some of the Jews who heard this then said,
"How can he claim that his body is bread?
How can he give it, that we all should eat?
For surely that isn't what Jesus' words mean!"

"Truly I tell you, yes, truly I say,"
Jesus continued talking this way,
"That if you forego my body to eat,
Then life--true life!--you will not receive.

To those who will drink, to those who will eat,
My body and blood, oh, they will receive
Life that's eternal--and hear what I say:
I will raise them all up upon the last day!"
