What We’re Learning: Jesus Said What?!
Jesus said a lot of things that would sound a little crazy to us today; Jesus said a lot of things that sounded crazy to the people of His day. But everything said was meaningful. Let’s take a deeper look at some of the things that might make us say, “JESUS SAID WHAT?!” and what they mean in our lives today.

Jesus Said What?! Week 2: Eat and Drink What?! (May 3, 2020)
- Main Point: We receive “living bread” when we believe Jesus gave His body up as a sacrifice for us.
- Main Scripture: John 6:47-58
- What are things that make you happy?
- Lots of things make us happy that aren’t bad, so what’s wrong if all our happiness is based on these things?
- Read John 6:47-58. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being ‘pass out scared’ & 1 being ‘didn’t care at all’, how nervous do you think people were about Jesus saying, “eat my body…drink my blood…?”
- What do you think people’s faces looked like when they heard Jesus say, “…eat my flesh and drink my blood?
- What do you think Jesus meant when He said He was the Bread of Life?
- How can we “eat” this Bread of Life?
- As a group, make a list of the things in which we try and find fulfillment. Help one another see that you’re not alone in trying to find satisfaction in something(s) other than the Bread of Life?
- How could others things we use to find happiness and satisfaction get in the way of our relationship with Jesus?
(1) Encourage your students that if they have never accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior, their Bread of Life, their ultimate satisfaction, they can do that right now! Here is our Go5pel guide to help guide you in that conversation.
(2) For students who have accepted Jesus as their Savior, encourage them to find their “daily bread,” aka their daily satisfaction in Jesus by spending time with Him every day.
(3) Take communion as a family. Here is a Family and Small Group Communion Guide to walk you through taking communion at home.
Ask your student(s) to share their prayer requests and close your time together in prayer.
