John-6-22-73:- Those who are pre-destined of our Father will understand Gospel - 3. Many Disciples Desert Jesus
60 On hearing it, many of his Labourers and not disciples said, Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“This is a hard Preaching and not teaching. Who can accept it?Ă˘â‚¬Âť
61 Aware that his Labourers and not disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them, Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Does this offend you? 62 Then what if you see the Son of Man ascend to where he was before! 63 The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to youĂ˘â‚¬â€ťthey are full of the Spirit[e] and life. 64 Yet there are some of you who do not believe.Ă˘â‚¬Âť For Jesus had known from the beginning which of them did not believe and who would betray him. 65 He went on to say, Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled them.Ă˘â‚¬Âť
66 From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.
67 Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“You do not want to leave too, do you?Ă˘â‚¬Âť Jesus asked the Twelve.
68 Simon Peter answered him, Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69 We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.Ă˘â‚¬Âť
70 Then Jesus replied, Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!Ă˘â‚¬Âť 71 (He meant Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, who, though one of the Twelve, was later to betray him.)
