John 6:9 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XI

the disciples say that they have the five loaves and the two fishes, without indicating whether they were wheaten or of barley, John alone says, that the loaves were barley loaves.[14]

John 6:9 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XI

Wherefore, perhaps, in the Gospel of John the disciples do not acknowledge that the loaves are with them, but say in John, "There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two fishes."[15]

John 6:10 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XI

You will moreover investigate in the accounts in the different places the variation found in John, who wrote in regard to that transaction that Jesus said, "Make the men sit down,"[208]

John 6:11 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book III

For although the Lord had the power to supply wine to those feasting, independently of any created substance, and to fill with food those who were hungry, He did not adopt this course; but, taking the loaves which the earth had produced, and giving thanks,[136]

John 6:11 - NIV, NAB - in Methodius Oration on the Psalms

of the bread that was eaten at that spontaneous banquet;[31]

John 6:13 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XI

And further, unless it be the same thing for Jesus to do a thing of Himself and to act after having heard from the disciples, consider if those to whom Jesus shows kindness are not superior when He fed them on the spot with a view to showing them kindness. And, if according to John,[210]

John 6:15 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Idolatry

He shrank back from being made a king,[148]

John 6:27 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book VI

ue philosophy, having delineated as well as possible the ethical argument conveyed in them, and having exhibited what the Gnostic is in his life, proceed to show the philosophers that he is by no means impious, as they suppose, but that he alone is truly pious, by a compendious exhibition of the Gnostic's form of religion, as far as it is possible, without danger, to commit it to writing in a book of reference. For the Lord enjoined "to labour for the meat which endureth to eternity."[2]

John 6:27 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Fasting

teaching "to labour for the meat which is permanent unto life eternal; "[106]

John 6:27 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise IV On the Lord's Prayer

To those who seek God's kingdom and righteousness, He promises that all things shall be added.[57]

John 6:27 - NIV, NAB - in Methodius Oration on the Psalms

For just as in a golden chain the links are so intimately joined and connected together, as that the one holds the other, and is fitted on to it, and so carries on the chain-even so the miracles that have been handed down by the holy Gospels, one after the other, lead on the Church of God, which delights in festivity, and refresh it, not with the meat that perisheth, but with that which endureth unto everlasting life.[3]

John 6:27 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book II

Follow therefore your trades as by the by, for your maintenance, but make the worship of God your main business; as also our Lord said: "Labour not for the meat which perishes, but for that which endureth unto everlasting life."[265]

John 6:32 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

For the bread of God is He that cometh down from heaven, and giveth life to the world. And the bread which I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world."[96]

John 6:32 - NIV, NAB - in The Liturgy of the Blessed Apostles

For He is the living and life-giving bread which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life to the whole world, of which they who eat die not; and they who receive it are saved by it, and do not see corruption, and live through it for ever; and Thou art the antidote of our mortality,[36]

John 6:33 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Prayer

and, a little above, "The Bread is the Word of the living God, who came down from the heavens."[41]

John 6:33 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

lump of teaching and of truly ancient leaven,-that according to the bare letter, and on this account not freed from those things which arise from wickedness,-which the Pharisees and Sadducees offered, of which Jesus does not wish His own disciples any longer to eat, having made for them a new and spiritual lump, offering Himself to those who gave up the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees and had come to Him-"the living bread which came down from heaven and gives life to the world."[36]

John 6:33 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

As, therefore, the Life is also the living bread which came down from heaven and gave life to the world,[217]

John 6:34 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

Elsewhere the Lord, in the Gospel according to John, brought this out by symbols, when He said: "Eat ye my flesh, and drink my blood; "[87]

John 6:35 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Prayer

is our Bread; because Christ is Life, and bread is life. "I am," saith He, "the Bread of Life; "[40]

" And whose bread is rich, if not ours? For the Lord is out bread, as He says Himself: "I am the bread of life."[32]

John 6:35 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book I

The Lord cries aloud, that "whosoever thirsts should come and drink of the rivers of living water that flowed out of His bosom."[13]

John 6:38 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to the Tarsians

What man could ever say, "I came down from heaven, not to do Mine own will, but the will of Him that sent Me? "[25]

John 6:38 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

You have (then) the restoration of the entire man, inasmuch as the Lord purposes to save that part of him which perishes, whilst he will not of course lose that portion which cannot be lost, Who will any longer doubt of the safety of both natures, when one of them is to obtain salvation, and the other is not to lose it? And, still further, the Lord explains to us the meaning of the thing when He says: "I came not to do my own will, but the Father's, who hath sent me."[225]

John 6:38 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

And it is not His own will, but the Father's, which He has accomplished,[87]

John 6:38 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Prayer

the Father's will;[27]

John 6:38 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise II On the Dress of Virgins

Therefore eternal and divine things are to be followed, and all things must be done after the will of God, that we may follow the divine footsteps and teachings of our Lord, who warned us, and said, "I came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of Him that sent me."[22]

John 6:38 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise IV On the Lord's Prayer

John 6:38 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

In the Gospel according to John: "I came not down from heaven to do mine own will, but the will of Him that sent me."[504]

John 6:38 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise of Novatian Concerning the Trinity

Or when he reads: "I came not down from heaven to do mine own will, but the will of Him that sent me? "[201]

John 6:38 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

and. "I came not to do mine own will, but the will of Him that sent me; "[567]

John 6:39 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

and in the affirmation He of course includes the promise of their safety; for if they were to be lost, where would be the use of having taken such a numerical care of them? Surely the only use lies (in this truth): "That of all which the Father hath given to me, I should lose none,"[235]

John 6:40 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

Now the Lord Himself has most clearly revealed the equality of salvation, when He said: "For this is the will of my Father, that every one that seeth the Son, and believeth on Him, should have everlasting life; and I will raise him up in the last day."[58]

Let him that teaches, although he be one of the laity, yet, if he be skilful in the word and grave in his manners, teach; for "they shall be all taught of God."[167]

John 6:46 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise of Novatian Concerning the Trinity

when man can neither be the bread of life, he himself being mortal, nor could he have come down from heaven, since no perishable material is established in heaven? If Christ is only man, how does He say that "no man hath seen God at any time, save He which is of God; He hath seen God? "[100]

John 6:48 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book X

Of the flesh of this Lamb it is necessary that we should eat in the thee of the world, which is night, and the flesh is to be roast with fire, and eaten with unleavened bread; for the Word of God is not flesh and flesh only. He says, in fact, Himself,[52]

John 6:51 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Flesh of Christ

of the world."[197]

John 6:51 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

Now, just before (the passage in hand), He had declared His flesh to be "the bread which cometh down from heaven,"[245]

John 6:51 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise of Novatian Concerning the Trinity

when man cannot have life in him after the example of God the Father, because he is not glorious in eternity, but made with the materials of mortality? If Christ is only man, how does He say, "I am the bread of eternal life which came down from heaven,"[99]

John 6:51 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XI

who was the Word and the living bread, it would not have been written, that "every one who eats of this bread shall live for ever."[142]

John 6:53 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

O amazing birth! O holy swaddling bands! The Word is all to the child, both father and mother and tutor and nurse. "Eat ye my flesh," He says, "and drink my blood."[89]

John 6:53 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Baptism

in order that they who believed in His blood might be bathed with the water; they who had been bathed in the water might likewise drink the blood.[163]

John 6:53 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Refutation of All Heresies Book V

This, he says, is what is spoken by the Saviour: "If ye do not drink my blood, and eat my flesh, ye will not enter into the kingdom of heaven; but even though," He says, "ye drink of the cup which I drink of, whither I go, ye cannot enter there."[79]

John 6:53 - NIV, NAB - in Dubious Hippolytus Fragments

by the offence of the word which Christ spoke, "Except a man eat my flesh, and drink my blood, he is not worthy of me."[154]

John 6:53 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise IV On the Lord's Prayer

efore, He says, that whoever shall eat of His bread shall live for ever; as it is manifest that those who partake of His body and receive the Eucharist by the right of communion are living, so, on the other hand, we must fear and pray lest any one who, being withheld from communion, is separate from Christ's body should remain at a distance from salvation; as He Himself threatens, and says, "Unless ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, ye shall have no life in you."[48]

John 6:53 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

John 6:53 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book X

" The Evangelist here agrees with Paul, and both are involved in the difficulties we spoke of above. But on the other hand we have to say that if the Word became flesh, and the Lord says,[51]

John 6:55 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

John 6:63 - NIV, NAB - in Theophilus to Autolycus Book I

Therefore, do not be sceptical, but believe; for I myself also used to disbelieve that this would take place, but now, having taken these things into consideration, I believe. At the same time, I met with the sacred Scriptures[20]

John 6:63 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book IV

of our heretic. Now, that the very Lord Himself of all might, the Word and Spirit of the Father,[671]

John 6:63 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

He says, it is true, that "the flesh profiteth nothing; "[242]

John 6:65 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LXXII

r with blaspheming heretics, to wish to maintain and assert, that one who blasphemes and gravely sins against the Father and the Lord and God of Christ, can receive remission of sins in the name of Christ? What, moreover, is that, and of what kind is it, that he who denies the Son of God has not the Father, and he who denies the Father should be thought to have the Son, although the Son Himself testifies, and says, "No man can come unto me except it were given unto him of my Father? "[26]

John 6:66 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian The Prescription Against Heretics

Let the chaff of a fickle faith fly off as much as it will at every blast of temptation, all the purer will be that heap of corn which shall be laid up in the garner of the Lord. Did not certain of the disciples turn back from the Lord Himself,[27]

John 6:67 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian The Prescription Against Heretics

they continued in His company to the very last, after He had gently inquired of them whether they also would go away.[30]

John 6:67 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LIV

And yet He did not rebuke them when they went away, nor even severely threaten them; but rather, turning to His apostles, He said, "Will ye also go away? "[29]

John 6:67 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LXVIII

And the Lord also in the Gospel, when disciples forsook Him as He spoke, turning to the twelve, said, "Will ye also go away? "then Peter answered Him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the word of eternal life; and we believe, and are sure, that Thou art the Son of the living God."[20]

John 6:67 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise Against the Heretic Novatian by an Anonymous Bishop
