1 st Reading: Deuteronomy 8:7-18 7 For   the   Lord   your   God   is   bringing   you   into   a
good    land,    a    land    with    flowing    streams,    with
springs   and   underground   waters   welling   up   in
valleys and hills,
8 a   land   of   wheat   and   barley,   of   vines   and   fig
trees   and   pomegranates,   a   land   of   olive   trees   and
honey,
9 a    land    where    you    may    eat    bread    without
scarcity,    where    you    will    lack    nothing,    a    land
whose   stones   are   iron   and   from   whose   hills   you
may mine copper.
10 You   shall   eat   your   fill   and   bless   the   Lord   your
God for the good land that he has given you.
11 Take   care   that   you   do   not   forget   the   Lord   your
God,   by   failing   to   keep   his   commandments,   his
ordinances,     and     his     statutes,     which     I     am
commanding you today.
12 When   you   have   eaten   your   fill   and   have   built
fine houses and live in them,
13 and     when     your     herds     and     flocks     have
multiplied,     and     your     silver     and     gold     is
multiplied, and all that you have is multiplied,
14 then   do   not   exalt   yourself,   forgetting   the   Lord
your   God,   who   brought   you   out   of   the   land   of
Egypt, out of the house of slavery,
15 who    led    you    through    the    great    and    terrible
wilderness,   an   arid   waste-land   with   poisonous
snakes   and   scorpions.   He   made   water   flow   for
you from flint rock,
16 and   fed   you   in   the   wilderness   with   manna   that
your   ancestors   did   not   know,   to   humble   you   and
to test you, and in the end to do you good.
17 Do    not    say    to    yourself,    ‘My    power    and    the
might    of    my    own    hand    have    gained    me    this
wealth.’
18 But   remember   the   Lord   your   God,   for   it   is   he
who   gives   you   power   to   get   wealth,   so   that   he
may   confirm   his   covenant   that   he   swore   to   your
ancestors, as he is doing today.
Gospel: John 6:25-35
The Bread from Heaven
25 When   they   found   him   on   the   other   side   of   the
lake,   they   said   to   him,   ‘Rabbi,   when   did   you
come here?’
26 Jesus   answered   them,   ‘Very   truly,   I   tell   you,
you   are   looking   for   me,   not   because   you   saw
signs,    but    because    you    ate    your    fill    of    the
loaves.
27 Do   not   work   for   the   food   that   perishes,   but   for
the   food   that   endures   for   eternal   life,   which   the
Son   of   Man   will   give   you.   For   it   is   on   him   that
God the Father has set his seal.’
28 Then   they   said   to   him,   ‘What   must   we   do   to
perform the works of God?’
29 Jesus    answered    them,    ‘This    is    the    work    of
God,    that    you    believe    in    him    whom    he    has
sent.’
30 So   they   said   to   him,   ‘What   sign   are   you   going
to    give    us    then,    so    that    we    may    see    it    and
believe you? What work are you performing?
31 Our      ancestors      ate      the      manna      in      the
wilderness;    as    it    is    written,    “He    gave    them
bread from heaven to eat.” ’
32 Then   Jesus   said   to   them,   ‘Very   truly,   I   tell
you,   it   was   not   Moses   who   gave   you   the   bread
from   heaven,   but   it   is   my   Father   who   gives   you
the true bread from heaven.
33 For   the   bread   of   God   is   that   which   comes
down from heaven and gives life to the world.’
34 They   said   to   him,   ‘Sir,   give   us   this   bread
always.’
35 Jesus   said   to   them,   ‘I   am   the   bread   of   life.
Whoever   comes   to   me   will   never   be   hungry,
and    whoever    believes    in    me    will    never    be
thirsty.
