6:26 Jesus replied, 1 “I tell you the solemn truth, 2 you are looking for me not because you saw miraculous signs, but because you ate all the loaves of bread you wanted. 3
6:30 So they said to him, “Then what miraculous sign will you perform, so that we may see it and believe you? What will you do?
6:40 For this is the will of my Father – for everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him to have eternal life, and I will raise him up 4 at the last day.” 5
6:64 But there are some of you who do not believe.” (For Jesus had already known from the beginning who those were who did not believe, and who it was who would betray him.) 6
1 tn Grk “answered and said to them.”
2 tn Grk “Truly, truly, I say to you.”
3 tn Grk “because you ate of the loaves of bread and were filled.”
4 tn Or “resurrect him,” or “make him live again.”
5 sn Notice that here the result (having eternal life and being raised up at the last day) is produced by looking on the Son and believing in him. Compare John 6:54 where the same result is produced by eating Jesus’ flesh and drinking his blood. This suggests that the phrase in 6:54 (eats my flesh and drinks my blood) is to be understood in terms of the phrase here (looks on the Son and believes in him).
