Rejection by Many Followers

60 cTherefore many of His disciples, when they heard this, said, “This is a 4hard saying; who can understand it?”

61 When Jesus knew in Himself that His disciples 5complained about this, He said to them, “Does this 6offend you? 62 dWhat then if you should see the Son of Man ascend where He was before? 63 eIt is the Spirit who gives life; the fflesh profits nothing. The gwords that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. 64 But hthere are some of you who do not believe.” For iJesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would betray Him. 65 And He said, “Therefore jI have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father.”

66 kFrom that time many of His disciples went 7back and walked with Him no more.
