Disciples Reacted to the Discourse

John 6:60-69

 

Although outlandish, Jesus expected

His Disciples to believe what He said.

The Eucharistic mystery was solved.

They suffered from some incredulity.

 

What Jesus revealed was not sensible.

Their faith would be strengthened in the future.

The Resurrection made them believers.

They would then become senior achievers.

 

An act of faith would lead to divine grace.

The Messiah was here, no more the chase.

Peter knew that what Jesus said was true

Because the words came from God Almighty.

 

Peter and his successors expressed their

Faith in the Divinity of Jesus.
