Meditations on Christ the Redeemer

Here the Lord declares Himself to be the Bread of Life—that is, the support and nourishment of the soul. The Israelites, no doubt, had formerly been fed with manna in the wilderness: it nourished the body for a while, but there was nothing in that food which profited beyond the present life; whereas whoso came to Christ for nourishment should never die. He that believeth on Him hath everlasting life.

Archbishop J. B. Sumner (1780–1862)
