Jesus stated that He came down from the Father.
In this chapter Jesus repeats seven times that He came down from Heaven , and that He came to give us life as our Bread of Life.
Jesus uses the illustration of eating to explain faith and also bread to explain that He is the one who gives life saving nourishment to our starving souls for all who believe in Him as Savior.
Jesus also again shows us that he lived in eternity before His time on Earth when He states that He came down from Heaven.
” For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.” (John 6:38)
