Bread of Life  

Murmurs ripple through the crowd.

What kind of Messiah

is this?

Eat His flesh, drink His blood?

Some scornfully mutter,

He is mad.

Many began to slink away.

Even the Twelve flounder in bewilderment.



the mystery revealed

to all who believe.

Humbly we bow, tear sliding down the cheek,

hands reverently cup the bread, the wine.


the unthinkable sacrifice.

Jesus Christ


Bread of Life.
