This Sunday’s gospel is the concluding section of Jesus’ discourse as the bread of life. Jesus reveals himself as the bread from heaven and many of the disciples caught on quite clearly. They understood that Jesus had handed them an all-or-nothing proposition. Peter gives us a hint of the discernment the community of disciples has been doing. He says, “We have come to believe.” They have talked among themselves and confirmed the interior experience each has had. Somehow, they know that Jesus’ words give them life.
