John6 "I do not have to pervert the Words of Christ to make it fit into my theology. "
OK John6, and you believe the ground beef you eat at a McDonald's is a "Big Mack"...lol
Those Jews who followed Jesus from the see of Galilee to Caperneum in John 6 were looking for more fish and bread to fill their stomach, not spiritual food. Read the context of the message in John 6, verses 27. It is his Spirit in our spirit which give eternal life. His flesh in our flesh would profit nothing, even if a priest able, by his blessing, to perform the miracle of transubstantiation.
The thought of drinking blood was startling to a Jew. You are aware of Genesis 9:4 and Leviticus 17:10-14 which forbids to taste even the blood of animals?
Exegate the contex of His teaching here in John 6. Jesus had started to show to the Jews that he was to the human spirit what bread was to the body. It was difficult to bring home to their carnal minds so spiritual a thought, and therefore Jesus clothed it in carnal metaphors and made it as plain as possible. Look at the modern day "Jew" of today, they still are spiritually lost and do not believe that Jesus is the Messiah sent down from heaven.
Catholicism and Protestantism have used the text found in John 6 in their doctrine for Communion..... Ridiculous, and pagan in character! In verse 53 Jesus expresses in words what he afterward expressed in symbols, when he gave the Lord's supper in the upper room.... The vital force of a disciple is proportioned to his belief in, remembrance of, and desire to assimilate the Christ. Verses 54-55...The flesh to be eaten must be broken, and the blood, if it is to be drunk, must be poured out. Christ speaks of himself as the sacrifice given for the saving of the world, and one must appropriate to himself by faith this expiation and find in it reconciliation with God if he would live for Him.
By insisting, on the drinking of his blood, Jesus is telling the Jewish mind set that his very life is to be assimilated.... He is "the true bread that comes down from heaven." Jesus is comparing his body to the "manna" sent by God to their fathers (vs. 31-35). Try reading the text through the eyes of a a Jew and not a modern day Catholic, or Baptist...
