53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except lye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and lmdrink his blood, ye have no life in you. 54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, nhath eternal life; and oI will raise him up at the last day. 55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
