Disciples Desert Jesus
John 6:60-70

New International Version (NIV)

 

Many Disciples Desert Jesus 60 On hearing it, many of his disciples said, “This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?”

 61 Aware that his disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them, “Does this offend you? 62 Then what if you see the Son of Man ascend to where he was before! 63 The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit[a] and life. 64 Yet there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus had known from the beginning which of them did not believe and who would betray him. 65 He went on to say, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled them.”

 66 From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.

   67 “You do not want to leave too, do you?” Jesus asked the Twelve.

 68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69 We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.”

 70 Then Jesus replied, “Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!

I hope we will not also run away in time of hardship?
    They people were following Christ in flesh, it is the spirit that gives life. Let us walk with Christ in Spirit in order not to fill the lust of the flesh.

What was there about Jesus` message caused so many of His disciples to turn away?
The things that the disciples who stop following Jesus was because Jesus knows their hearts. They find it difficult to understand His saying is because they do not believe what Jesus was saying. and again Jesus confirmed that no one can come to Him unless it is given to Him by the Father, God. As God knows us even before we were born and whatever we do or our belief, will be made known. We have to believe in Jesus and be a giver , open up our hearts and we can hear his voice. May God bless you. Amen.

What was there about Jesus` message caused so many of His disciples to turn away?
He just told them that he will have to die so they turn away because they think the ordinary way: earthly death is no victory. They do not understand but differently from the faithful disciples they don`t have enough faith to stand by him: not understand that you may believe but believe that you may understand. We know that you have the word of Eternal Life they say. The others either don`t understand what that is or they don`t think that Jesus has it which probably go together as they would at least believe in the difference between death and real death.

Many Disciples Desert Jesus

Therefore many of his disciples, when they heard this, said, "This is a hard saying! Who can listen to it?"
But Jesus knowing in himself that his disciples murmured at this, said to them, "Does this cause you to stumble? 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 have I 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."
Jesus answered them, "Didn't I choose you, the twelve, and one of you is a devil?" Now he spoke of Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, for it was he who would betray him, being one of the twelve.
