Jesus is the BREAD OF LIFE!
Jesus begins the seven I AM statements of Jesus in the gospel of John by declaring He is the bread of life.
Reaching back into the manna in the wilderness, Jesus reinterprets and clarifies that the daily provision the Israelites experienced is to now be Him.
In this episode, Nathan discusses the context for Jesus’ statement in connection to the manna in the wilderness and explains that Jesus is far superior—He is the bread of life itself.
