Jesus continues to teach about the bread of life, coming now to words that sound like he is even advocating a form of cannibalism. Why does he use such shocking images? We learn that some of his disciples went away and no longer went about with him after hearing these words. Jesus even asked the twelve, “Do you also wish to go away?” But Peter answered, “Lord, to whom can we go? You have the words of eternal life.”
When Jesus asks us, because of some hard saying or difficult command, “Do you also wish to go away?” how do we answer? Is the way in which Jesus leads us, that is, the way of the cross, also the path of eternal life?
