Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

John 6:41-46

_ _ Jews murmured — muttered, not in our Lord’s hearing, but He knew it (John 6:43; John 2:25).

_ _ he said, I am the bread, etc. — Missing the sense and glory of this, and having no relish for such sublimities, they harp upon the “Bread from heaven.” “What can this mean? Do we not know all about Him — where, when, and of whom He was born? And yet He says He came down from heaven!”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 6:28-59.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

John 6:41

(9) The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven.

(9) Flesh cannot perceive spiritual things, and therefore the beginning of our salvation comes from God, who changes our nature, so that we, being inspired by him, may remain to be instructed and saved by Christ.
