“My Flesh for the Life of the World”
In this short passage, 10 verses in total, Jesus repeats five times the universality of God’s salvation. Though they are different, the words “whoever,” “anyone,” and “everyone” convey the same meaning.
God’s salvation is given to all humanity in the coming, death, and resurrection of God’s only Son, Jesus Christ.
This salvation continues to be given to us today in the Eucharist – “The bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.”
