The mass for this Sunday continued with the Gospel from John 6: 41-51 in the Bread of Life Discourse. In these verses, the Jews begin questioning Jesus's claim that he is the living bread come down from heaven. They do this by focusing on his very ordinary origin (so they thought). They say "Isn't this Jesus, the son of Joseph? Don't we know his mother and father?" They think they know all there is to know about his origins and ask "How can he say he came down from heaven?" Jesus affirms that he has been sent by God the Father and that he is the Bread of Life. He then affirms that his flesh is what he will give as the living bread.
