6:35 the bread of life. There are seven great “I am” claims of Christ recorded in the Gospel of John (see also John 8:12; 10:9; 10:11; 11:25; 14:6; 15:1). Each of these amounts to an assertion of deity, amplifying His great claim to be the “I am” (see note on John 8:58).
6:35 shall never thirst. These promises obviously apply to spiritual hunger and thirst, but the crowd had wanted to apply them to their physical wants (John 6:26,34).
