Who Can Accept It?

Sermon for August 26, 2018 

Read Psalm 84 and John 6:56-69

This week’s passages finishes the section in John that we began last month talking about the Bread of Life. Jesus began by drawing the crowds together with his teachings and then feeding the multitudes, but then then began to abandon him. It was just the crowds at first - those who had come to listen and see what this teacher was about. But now it’s actual disciples leaving him.

But why? Sure the flesh and blood stuff sounds strange, but is it really all that much stranger than calling himself the "Bread of Life"?

The answer to their offense, and the point Jesus was making, lies deep in the Book of Leviticus. Leviticus chapter seventeen contains a forceful and simple law about how the People of God were to handle blood.
