Jesus Explained The Eucharist The Day After Feeding The 5000

Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him." John 6:53-56

" Matthew 26:26-28

And he said, 'For this reason I have told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by my Father.' As a result of this, many (of) his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him. Jesus then said to the Twelve, 'Do you also want to leave?' Simon Peter answered him, 'Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.'" John 6:64-68
