Peter

I am Peter. We disciples have arrived in Capernaum with Jesus
after fed thousands of hungry people in the wilderness.
Imagine! Oh, look! Crowds are thronging him!
Hear them shout.

 

Prompter &Echoes

More bread!

 

Voice

You seek me because you ate the loaves and they filled you.
Do not work for food that perishes, but for food that gives eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you.

 

Grasper

Work? Okay. What can we do to work the works of God?

 

Voice

This is the work of God: believe in him whom he has sent.

 

Grasper

Then give us a sign, so we can believe you.
Our fathers ate manna in the desert;
Moses gave them bread from heaven.
Do for us what Moses did for them.

 

Voice

It was not Moses who gave bread from heaven, but my Father.
He gives true bread from heaven that gives life to the world.

 

Grasper

Yes, yes, Lord! Give it to us!

 

Prompter & Echoes

Bread! Now!

 

Voice

I am the bread of life that came down from heaven.
He who comes to me will not hunger.
All who believe in the Son will have eternal life.

 

Grasper

Well, who do you think you are! Ha!
Did you hear what he said, folks?
Isn’t this Jesus, the son of Joseph?
We know his mom, dad and brothers.
So how can He say, ‘I have come down out of heaven’?

 

Voice

Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died.
I am the living bread; eat it and you will live forever.
This bread is my flesh.

 

Prompter &Echoes

He says to eat His flesh!

 

Voice

He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life,
and I will raise him up on the last day.
He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me,
and I in him.

 

Grasper

Whoa! That is too much!
I have heard enough! He is blaspheming.
I am not following that guy anymore. Let’s leave.

 

Peter

Look, Lord Jesus, they’re all leaving! Your words offended them.
They all left you, except a few of us disciples.
Your words were very hard.

 

Voice

Does this make you stumble, Peter?
What if you see the Son of Man rising to where he was before?
The Spirit is who gives life; the flesh profits nothing;
the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.
You do not want to go away also, do you?

 

Peter

Oh, no, Lord! Never! To whom could we go?
You have the words of eternal life.

 

Prompter &Echoes

Only you, Lord!
