Q&A

Were Jesus’ words about "eating his body" just a metaphor meant to shake up his listeners?

Question:

My Baptist friend says that when Jesus talks in John 6 about &quot;eating his flesh and drinking his blood,&quot; he was using a shocking metaphor to shake up people who were not ready for his real point (faith, of course), just as when he said, &quot;Destroy this temple and in three days I will rebuild it&quot; (John 2:19). What do you say?<br />
