I am the living bread which came down out of heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. Yes, the bread which I will give for the life of the world is my flesh."
The Jews therefore contended with one another, saying, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?"
Jesus therefore said to them, "Most certainly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you don't have life in yourselves.
He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.
He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood lives in me, and I in him.
This is the bread which came down out of heaven--not as our fathers ate the manna, and died. He who eats this bread will live forever."
Now on the last and greatest day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink!
He said to them, "You are from beneath. I am from above. You are of this world. I am not of this world.
Most certainly, I tell you, if a person keeps my word, he will never see death."
Then the Jews said to him, "Now we know that you have a demon. Abraham died, and the prophets; and you say, 'If a man keeps my word, he will never taste of death.'
Are you greater than our father, Abraham, who died? The prophets died. Who do you make yourself out to be?"
My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all. No one is able to snatch them out of my Father's hand.
The sisters therefore sent to him, saying, "Lord, behold, he for whom you have great affection is sick."
But when Jesus heard it, he said, "This sickness is not to death, but for the glory of God, that God's Son may be glorified by it."
Now Jesus had spoken of his death, but they thought that he spoke of taking rest in sleep.
So from that day forward they took counsel that they might put him to death.
But the chief priests conspired to put Lazarus to death also,
On the next day a great multitude had come to the feast. When they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
Most certainly I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains by itself alone. But if it dies, it bears much fruit.
But he said this, signifying by what kind of death he should die.
Most certainly I tell you, a servant is not greater than his lord, neither one who is sent greater than he who sent him.
I don't speak concerning all of you. I know whom I have chosen. But that the Scripture may be fulfilled, 'He who eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me.'
Most certainly I tell you, he who believes in me, the works that I do, he will do also; and he will do greater works than these, because I am going to my Father.
You heard how I told you, 'I go away, and I come to you.' If you loved me, you would have rejoiced, because I said 'I am going to my Father;' for the Father is greater than I.
Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.
Remember the word that I said to you: 'A servant is not greater than his lord.' If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will keep yours also.

that the word of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spoke, signifying by what kind of death he should die.
Jesus answered, "You would have no power at all against me, unless it were given to you from above. Therefore he who delivered me to you has greater sin."
When Pilate therefore heard these words, he brought Jesus out, and sat down on the judgment seat at a place called "The Pavement," but in Hebrew, "Gabbatha."
When he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit!
Jesus therefore said to them, "Children, have you anything to eat?" They answered him, "No."
Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land, full of great fish, one hundred fifty-three; and even though there were so many, the net wasn't torn.
Jesus said to them, "Come and eat breakfast." None of the disciples dared inquire of him, "Who are you?" knowing that it was the Lord.
So when they had eaten their breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of Jonah, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I have affection for you." He said to him, "Feed my lambs."
Now he said this, signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God. When he had said this, he said to him, "Follow me."

It happened, when the sun arose, that God prepared a sultry east wind; and the sun beat on Jonah's head, so that he fainted, and requested for himself that he might die, and said, "It is better for me to die than to live."
God said to Jonah, "Is it right for you to be angry about the vine?" He said, "I am right to be angry, even to death."
Shouldn't I be concerned for Nineveh, that great city, in which are more than one hundred twenty thousand persons who can't discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much livestock?"
Now it happened after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, that the LORD spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' servant, saying,

Joshua said to them, "If you are a great people, go up to the forest, and clear land for yourself there in the land of the Perizzites and of the Rephaim; since the hill country of Ephraim is too narrow for you."
Joshua spoke to the house of Joseph, even to Ephraim and to Manasseh, saying, "You are a great people, and have great power. You shall not have one lot only;
