John 6:38

Context
6:38 For I have come down from heaven not to do my own will but the will of the one who sent me.

John 6:57

Context
6:57 Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so the one who consumes 1  me will live because of me.

1 tn Or “who chews”; Grk “who eats.” Here the translation “consumes” is more appropriate than simply “eats,” because it is the internalization of Jesus by the individual that is in view. On the alternation between ἐσθίω (esqiw, “eat,” v. 53) and τρώγω (trwgw, “eats,” vv. 54, 56, 58; “consumes,” v. 57) see the note on “eats” in v. 54.
