The reason the Jews complained was because He said that He was the symbolic answer to man and of course we Christians believe that symbolism is correct. I believe the Old Testament has many types that are answered in the New Testament. I don’t know if I blame them because they knew that He grew up as a baby and knew even who His mother was.
Next in verse 44 Jesus says, “No one can come to Me unless the Father draws him and I will raise him up on the last day.” To me that is right but to them it was not easy to believe.  All of these are statements easy for me to believe but not for them.
Then in verse 48 he says, “I am the Bread of Life.”  I believe that whole heartily.  I may ask whoever reads this, “Do You?” Jesus then speaks of coming down from Heaven and if we eat of Him we will have eternal life.  Still it is the Holy Spirit that assures us of these things.
