This week Pastor Tom continues his 4-part sermon series,
The Body in the Bread
The series continues with John 6:24-35. Jesus, having fed the 5,000 with the miracle of multiplying the bread and fish, now speaks to the crowd of bread from heaven that nourishes beyond what everyday bread is able to do. Jesus tells them that he is this bread, the "Bread of Life."
What could Jesus mean by saying he is the "Bread of Life"?
What could it mean to be the body of Christ, the Church, nourished by the "Bread of Life"?
During communion we break the bread. If Jesus is the "Bread of Life," what then does it mean when the bread is broken?

John 6:35, 41-51, 60 - The Jewish leaders aren't pleased with Jesus' teaching about himself being the "Bread of Life" sent from above. Jesus calls them out on their complaining.
Sunday, August 15: The Body in the Bread, part 4

Sunday, August 22: The Body in the Bread, Epilogue
