JOHN Chapter 6 vs. 66
As a result of this, many [of] his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him.
This was in the bible’s gospel reading tonight at Mass. 666 – the sign of the devil – disciples (now known as Christians) turning away from Jesus and going back to their former way of life, no longer walking the way of Jesus.
What preceded their leaving?
JOHN Chapter 6 vs. 60
When many of his disciples heard it, they said, “This teaching is difficult; who can accept it?”
Jesus does have difficult teachings. Will you stay with Him? Can you humbly defer your judgement and answer as Peter did in JOHN Chapter 6 vs. 68 “Lord, to whom can we go? You have the words of eternal life.”
