Power in Metaphors, but
  • Metaphors can convey powerful visual messages,
    but they can also be misunderstood.
  • The masses misunderstood Jesus and his metaphor
    I am the Bread of Life. First we will see how
    they misunderstood Jesus, then how they
    misunderstood his claim to be the bread of life.

14
I. Mistake of the Masses 626-31. They
misunderstood Jesus.
  • A. Physical appetites can blind us to our need
    for spiritual nourishment. 626-27

15
  • John 626 Jesus answered them and said, "Truly,
    truly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you
    saw signs, but because you ate of the loaves and
    were filled. (27) "Do not work for the food
    which perishes, but for the food which endures to
    eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to
    you, for on Him the Father, God, has set His
    seal."

16
I. Mistake of the Masses 626-31
  • Physical appetites can blind us to our need for
    spiritual nourishment. 626-27
  • B. Hang-ups on what we are to do can blind us to
    what God is doing for us? 628-29

17
  • John 628-29 Therefore they said to Him, "What
    shall we do, so that we may work the works of
    God?" (29) Jesus answered and said to them,
    "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him
    whom He has sent."

18
I. Mistake of the Masses 626-31
  • Physical appetites can blind us to our need for
    spiritual nourishment. 626-27
  • Hang-ups on what we are to do can blind us to
    what God is doing for us? 628-29
  • In our desire to see a sign we can be blind to
    the obvious signs given to us? 630

19
  • John 630 So they said to Him, "What then do You
    do for a sign, so that we may see, and believe
    You? What work do You perform?
