Eating and Drinking in John 6 Redux

Just when I thought that this old post had gone into the cryogenic storage of the distant archives, it has been reanimated with new discussion. A number of issues are addressed, including that of whether a reference to the Eucharist in John 6 means that our salvation is at stake if we do not eat it (and what the word ‘salvation’ is actually assumed to mean in such a question).

One Response to Eating and Drinking in John 6 Redux

    It seems that eucharist is a life or death issue in Corinthians. If that is true then why is it a stretch to say that it is related to salvation in John 6. The Lord makes theses things (water, bread, blood, spirit) important although why we don’t know.
