What is your favorite type of bread? Rye, white, garlic,pumpernickel, wheat: so many different kinds of bread, and they are all nutritious. Jesus speaks of there being only 1 bread that quenches hunger completely, and that bread is himself. Could Jesus be saying that he is spiritual bread: that he is living compassion,courage, and truth, and that is what gives real life? Also, insofar as we live his life, we come alive. Truly, just as Jesus remains the bread of life, so each of us is the bread of life to be consumed (imitated and lived) by those we touch. Let’s look to Jesus not  only as one whom we follow, but on ourselves as they who lead others to Christ.
