Jesus said to the crowd:
‘No one can come to me
unless he is drawn by the Father who sent me,
and I will raise him up at the last day.
It is written in the prophets:
They will all be taught by God,
and to hear the teaching of the Father,
and learn from it,
is to come to me.
Not that anybody has seen the Father,
except the one who comes from God:
he has seen the Father.
I tell you most solemnly,
everybody who believes has eternal life.
‘I am the bread of life.
Your fathers ate the manna in the desert
and they are dead;
but this is the bread that comes down from heaven,
so that a man may eat it and not die.
I am the living bread which has come down from heaven.
Anyone who eats this bread will live for ever;
and the bread that I shall give is my flesh,
for the life of the world.’
οὐδεὶς δύναται ἐλθεῖν πρός με
ἐὰν μὴ ὁ πατὴρ ὁ πέμψας με ἑλκύσῃ αὐτὸν,
καγὼ ἀναστήσω αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ ἐσχάτῃ ἡμέρᾳ.
ἔστιν γεγραμμένον ἐν τοῖς προφήταις·
καὶ ἔσονται πάντες διδακτοὶ θεοὺ·
πᾶς ὁ ἀκούσας παρὰ τοῦ πατρὸς
ἔρχεται πρὸς ἐμὲ.
οὐχ ὅτι τὸν πατέρα ἑώρακεν τις
εἰ μὴ ὁ ὢν παρὰ τοῦ θεοῦ,
οὗτος ἑώρακεν τὸν πατέρα.
ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν,
ὁ πιστεύων ἔχει ζωὴν αἰώνιον.
Ἐγὼ εἰμι ὅ ἄρτος τῆς ζωῆς.
οἱ πατέρες ὑμῶν ἔφαγον ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ τὸ μάννα
οὗτος ἐστιν ὁ ἄρτος ὁ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καταβαίνων,
ἵνα τις ἐξ αὐτοῦ φάγῃ καὶ μὴ ἀποθάνῃ.
ἐγὼ εἰμι ὁ ἄρτος ὁ ζῶν ὁ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καταβάς·
ἐάν τις φάγῃ ἐκ τούτου τοῦ ἄρτου ζήσει εἰς τὸν αἰώνα,
καὶ ὁ ἄρτος δὲ ὃν ἐγὼ δώσω ἡ σάρξ μού ἐστιν
ὑπὲρ τῆς τοῦ κόσμου ζωῆς.
