John 6:34-35 NIV 2011
“Sir,” they said, “always give us this bread.”

Exodus 16:4, “Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘I will rain down bread from heaven for you.’” The people wanted bread. Jesus responded. John 6:33, “For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” Jesus is the bread of life.
