The Jesus Tree–Day Sixteen

Today’s reading was from John 6:22-59. It’s the well-known “I Am the Bread of Life,” passage, in which Jesus tells of the forthcoming Eucharist, even though His listeners didn’t really get it. This is one of only two readings where I couldn’t find a corresponding story in any of our children’s Bibles. I guess that makes sense, because this is a pretty complicated passage, but then again, children understand a lot more than we give them credit for. Anyway, I just made sure we really talked through the ESV reading, since we didn’t also have a simplified version to read and understand.
