Then what if you would see the Son of Man ◆ ascending to where he was before?
It is the spirit who gives life. The flesh profits nothing.
The words that I speak to you are spirit, and are life.
But there are some of you who don’t believe.”
For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who didn’t believe, and who it was who would betray him.
He said, “For this cause I have said to you that no one can come to me, unless it is given to him by my Father.” At this, many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Jesus said therefore to the twelve, “You don’t also want to go away, do you?”
Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and know that you are the Christ ◆, the Son of the living God.”
