6:29 Jesus replied, 1 “This is the deed 2 God requires 3 – to believe in the one whom he 4 sent.”
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 5 at the last day.” 6
1 tn Grk “answered and said to them.”
2 tn Grk “the work.”
3 tn Grk “This is the work of God.”
4 tn Grk “that one” (i.e., God).
5 tn Or “resurrect him,” or “make him live again.”
6 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).
