Bible verses about Eating Christ's Flesh
(From Forerunner Commentary)

John 6:52   (Go to this verse :: Verse pop-up)

Verse 52 shows that the Jews again interpret His words in a strictly literal sense: "How can this Man gives us His flesh to eat?" How utterly impossible it is for those who do not believe, who do not "come to Him," to understand the mysteries of salvation! Their hearts are ever ready to quarrel, scoff, and resist.

Jesus does not back down in the face of their scoffing. Instead, He strengthens His statement about eating His flesh by adding that one must also drink His blood! He moves from something that seems foolish to His audience to the outright absurd.

Revelation 10:9   (Go to this verse :: Verse pop-up)

"Take and eat it" sounds very much like what Jesus said to His disciples when He told them to eat the unleavened bread during the Passover service. Eating the bread symbolizes partaking of His flesh, that is, devoting ourselves to the life He lives, becoming one with Him as part of His Body, living as He lives. Eating the little book has a similar meaning.
