Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 6:35

_ _ I am the bread of life — Henceforth the discourse is all in the first person, “I,” “Me,” which occur in one form or other, as Stier reckons, thirty-five times.

_ _ he that cometh to me — to obtain what the soul craves, and as the only all-sufficient and ordained source of supply.

_ _ hunger ... thirst — shall have conscious and abiding satisfaction.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 6:28-59.
