The Discourse of Jesus Christ Continued
The people asked Jesus Christ for a sign
Like the manna their ancestors received.
Jesus said the manna was from Heaven.
He also said He was the bread of life.
When Jesus was a baby, the Magi
Gave Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
When Jesus was an adult, He gave gifts
Of faith, Eucharist, and eternal life.
Christ was the only one who could give these
Gifts. He was everyone’s superior.
He solved the Incarnation mystery.
Jesus became man while still being God.
The discourse was a great conversation.
Everybody could attain salvation.
