    1. Chapter 6

    2. Vital Concepts & Truths to Know in John 6 • Believing in Jesus is a work (John 6:28-29)! • “Faith only” advocates try to separate faith & works, claiming only faith is essential. • Many try to categorize baptism as a work and say it’s not necessary for salvation. • Jesus taught that even believing in Him is a work! • “What shall we do that we may work the works of God?” (6:28). • “This is the work of God, that you believe in” Me (6:29). • A “work of God” is something that God has ordered man to do! • Jesus established that believing in Him is a work! • Thus, if one tries to make works unnecessary for salvation, he must include faith.

    3. Vital Concepts & Truths to Know in John 6 • Believing in Jesus is a work (John 6:28-29)! • Jesus joins faith and works as essentials for salvation (John 6:28-29)! • Paul excludes only works of which one might boast (Eph. 2:8-9)! • James & Peter include works as obedience to God (Jas. 2:19-26; Acts 10:34-35)! • Jesus knows all things (John 6:6, 15, 61, 64)! • A little in the hands of Jesus is a lot (John 6:9-13)! • Jesus submitted His will to the will of the Father and we should, too (John 6:38-40)! • The miracles of Jesus were absolutely astounding!

    4. An Overview/Theme of John 6: “The Bread from Heaven Gives Life” • Jesus Fed 5,000 Men (Plus Women & Children) with Bread & Fish (John 6:1-14)! • Jesus was the first to mention bread in this chapter (John 6:5). • No doubt brought it up to lead into (1) the sign and (2) the lesson about bread. • A little boy had 5 pieces of bread (size of soda cracker) & 2 fish (size of sardines). • Not much in the eyes of man, but more than enough in the eyes of God. • The people were hungry. Jesus gave them bread to eat. Now, they’re ready to hear.

    5. An Overview/Theme of John 6: “The Bread from Heaven Gives Life” • God Gave Manna (Bread) in the Old Testament (John 6:30-31)! • Jews may have thought Moses better than Jesus for (1) feeding over half-a-million Jews vs. 5,000 and for (2) providing food from heaven vs. food from earth (6:30-31). • Jesus corrected them: • God gave the Jews the bread/manna in the wilderness, not Moses (John 6:32). • The bread/manna in O.T. was but a type of the True Bread (John 6:32). • In addition, those who ate that bread in the wilderness all died (John 6:49, 58).

    6. An Overview/Theme of John 6: “The Bread from Heaven Gives Life” • God Sent the True Bread That All Might Live! • …given by the Father & comes down from heaven (6:32-33…). • The True Bread endures (John 6:27), rather than perishing. • Jesus is the True Bread, and there is no other (John 6:32, 48)! • “He is from God” (John 6:46). • He “came down from heaven” & “came into this world” (6:14,33,38,50). • He compared bread (which one eats to live) to His flesh and blood, which was essential in order for us to live spiritually & eternally (51-56). • He concluded that the bread to be consumed is His Word (John 6:63). • Jesus is and has “the bread of life,” “the words of eternal life” (6:63, 68). • A.K.A.: “the bread of God” (6:33), “the bread of life” (6:48), “the living bread” (6:51).

    7. An Overview/Theme of John 6: “The Bread from Heaven Gives Life” • The Nature of Bread Demands That Man Partake! • Man must seek Christ and for the right reasons (John 6:24-26). • …Come to Him (35,37,44,45,65) & believe in Him (35,40,47,69). • “Come to Him” – to acknowledge Him for who He claimed to be, the Messiah. • “Believe in Him” – to trust Him fully and comply wholeheartedly with His will. • “Come to Him” and “believe in Him” are used interchangeably in this chapter.

    8. An Overview/Theme of John 6: “The Bread from Heaven Gives Life” • The Nature of Bread Demands That Man Partake! • Man must be drawn by the Father (6:44), which is done when: • One is “taught by God” through His Word (John 6:45). • One “has heard and learned from the Father” through His Word (6:45). • Man must submit to & obey the will of the Father (John 6:65), like Jesus did (6:38). • As “the bread of life” gives “the words of eternal life” (63, 68): • We must, like Ezekiel & John, consume them (Ezek. 2:4-3:3; Rev. 10:9-11). • We must “feed on” (or “eat”) Jesus and His Word (John 6:57; cf. 6:50-58).

    9. An Overview/Theme of John 6: “The Bread from Heaven Gives Life” • The True Bread Offers Great Blessings & Promises! • Physical bread sustains life; eaters die (John 6:49, 58). • When we feed upon it & digest it, the True Bread: • “Endures to everlasting life” (John 6:27, 40, 47, 54, 68). • “Gives life to the world” (John 6:33, 35, 48, 51, 53). • Guarantees the eater thereof will: • “Abide in Me, and I in him” (John 6:56; cf. 15:1-7). • “Never hunger” and “never thirst” (John 6:35). • “Not die” (John 6:50). • Be “raised up at the last day” (John 6:39, 40, 44, 54). • “Live forever” (John 6:51, 58).

    10. An Overview/Theme of John 6: “The Bread from Heaven Gives Life” • The True Bread Offers Great Blessings & Promises! • “As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me” (John 6:57).

    11. An Overview/Theme of John 6: “The Bread from Heaven Gives Life” • Bread from Heaven Is Objectionable to Some (6:60-69)! • Some refused to believe that Jesus had come to save them (60). • “What will you think when you see Me ascend” (62)? • Jesus’ words “are life,” but some did not believe them (63-64). • “Many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more” (John 6:66). • The message and the demands of Jesus separate the chaff from the wheat! • True believers know there is nowhere else to go for the words of eternal life (67-69).

    12. How Chapter 6 Helps to Fulfill the Overall Purpose of the Gospel of John • Signs Were Recorded That Readers Might Believe • He kept on performing signs on those who were sick (John 5:2). • Feeding 5,000 men with five loaves and two fish (5:1-14). • Only miracle (besides resurrection) mentioned in all four accounts. • Walking on the water, three to four miles out (John 5:15-21). • Transporting the boat immediately to land (John 5:21). • “This is truly the Prophet” (John 6:14). • Manna was a Type of the True Bread from God. • “I AM” Statements: “I am the bread of life….” • Testimony of Peter: “You have the words of eternal life.”
