In the Gospel of John, chapter 6 we find The Bread of Life Discourse, in which Jesus says, “For my flesh is true
food, and my blood is true drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him.” (Jn
6:55-56)
The directness of this statement shocked the disciples, causing many of them to respond, “This saying is hard;
who can accept it?” (Jn. 6:60)
This is where the phrase, “the hard sayings of Jesus” comes from. Another hard saying of Jesus comes in the
Gospel of Matthew, chapter 19, when some Pharisees insisted that divorce was allowed by Moses; to this Jesus
responded, “Because of the hardness of your hearts Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the
beginning it was not so. I say to you, whoever divorces his wife (unless the marriage is unlawful) and marries
another commits adultery.” (Mt. 19:8-9)
