Ideal for Preaching & Teaching - A Brief Sample from John 6:60-71

John 6 is a fascinating chapter. The commentator titles this section The Cost of Discipleship. Jesus had just said that "The one who eats My flesh and drinks My blood lives in Me and I in him." When Jesus explained this further, the Bible says, "From that moment many of His disciples turned back and no longer accompanied Him." Such a sad sentence. The commentator introduces this lesson by telling us, "Here we encounter the mystery of sin and unbelief as it interfaces with the purpose of God."

The Bible Speaks Today commentary makes this historic teaching personal to us today. You will find it's ideal for sermon and lesson preparation. The author reminds us:

"The concluding paragraph of the chapter vividly expresses the cost of following Jesus. Being a true believer will involve going the way of the cross, as Jesus will indicate: ‘unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies ...’ (12:24). Among other things, that will mean remaining true to Jesus when he and his word are dismissed. Being a true believer will mean following him loyally when his truth is hard to understand and even harder to apply, when his claims seem largely contradicted by tangible realities, and when the multitudes turn away from him and we find ourselves part of a small and ostracized minority."

This is just a small clip from the full commentary on this passage. You will find this work will be a blessing to you and your ministry to others.
