||He said these things when he was teaching in the synagogue at Capernaum.
||Therefore, many of his disciples, upon hearing this, said: “This saying is difficult,” and, “Who is able to listen to it?”
||But Jesus, knowing within himself that his disciples were murmuring about this, said to them: “Does this offend you?
||Then what if you were to see the Son of man ascending to where he was before?
||It is the Spirit who gives life. The flesh does not offer anything of benefit. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.
||But there are some among you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning who were unbelieving and which one would betray him.
||And so he said, “For this reason, I said to you that no one is able to come to me, unless it has been given to him by my Father.”
||After this, many of his disciples went back, and they no longer walked with him.
||Therefore, Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you also want to go away?”
||Then Simon Peter answered him: “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words of eternal life.
