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 "eating his flesh and drinking his blood," 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, "Destroy this temple and in three days I will rebuild it" (John 2:19). What do you say?
