When Jesus describes himself as the bread of life, he prompts in us images of warmth and comfort. Jesus is the bread of life and he wants to give us that bread always. He wants to fill us with his risen life. What Jesus is saying, though, is more than mere sentiment. Jesus is our nourishment. He is our staple food. It is Jesus and Jesus alone who can bring us the true peace of God.
