The Jews therefore ftrove amongst 52. themselves, faying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?

Then Jefus faid unto them, " Verily 53
verily I fay unto you, except ye eat
"the flesh of the fon of man, and drink
"his blood, ye have no life in you.
"Whofo eateth my flesh and drinketh 54.

"of this bread, fhall live for ever. Anno These things faid he in the fynagogue Atat. 32. Minift. 3. 60. as he taught in Capernaum. Many therefore of his difciples when they had heard this, faid, This is a hard faying, 61. who can hear it? When Jefus knew in himself that his difciples murmured at 62. it, he faid unto them, "Doth this of"fend you? What and if ye fhall fee the "fon of man afcend up where he was be63." fore? It is the fpirit that quickneth, "the flesh profiteth nothing: the words "that I fpake unto you, they are fpirit, "and they are life. But there are "fome of you that believe not. For "Jefus knew from the beginning, who - cc they were that believed not, and "who fhould betray him. And he said, 65." Therefore faid I unto you, that no 26 man can come to me, except it were "given unto him of my Father.




From that time many of his difciples went back and walked no more with him.

Then faid Jefus unto the twelve, will 68. ye also go away? Then Simon Peter anfwered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? 69. Thou haft the words of eternal life. And we believe and are fure that thou art Chrift, the fon of the living God. Jefus 70. answered them, Have not I chofen you 71. twelve, and one of you is a devil. He fpake of Judas Iscariot, the fon of Simon: for he it was that fhould betray him, being one of the twelve.

Men are really defiled.



HEN came together unto [Fe- 1. Mar. vii. fus] the Pharifees, and certain of the Scribes which came from Jerufalem, and when they faw fome of his difciples eat bread with defiled (that is to fay with unwafhen) hands, they found fault. For the Pharifees and all 3. the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders. And when they come from the market except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups and pots, brazen Mat. xv. veffels and of tables. Then the Pharifees and Scribes asked him, Why walk not thy difciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwafhen bands? He anfwered and faid 6.
