    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:60

    ¶ Y muchos de sus discípulos oyndolo, dijeron: Dura es esta palabra; ¿quin la puede oír?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 6:60

    Verse 60. Many therefore of his
    disciples] So it appears that he had many more than the twelve, who constantly accompanied him.

    This is a hard saying; who can hear it?] Who can digest such doctrine as this? It is intolerable: it is impracticable. There is a similar saving in Euripides, to the sklhrov logov of the evangelist. potera qeleiv soi malqaka yeudh legw, h sklhr alhqh, fraze; Tell me whether thou wouldst that I should speak unto thee, a SOFT LIE, or the HARSH TRuth? The wicked word of a lying world is in general better received than the holy word of the God of truth!


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 60. Many therefore of his disciples , etc.] Not of the twelve, nor of the seventy, but of the multitude of the disciples, who followed him from place to place, attended on his ministry, and might be baptized in his name; (see John 4:1); when they had heard [this] ; that his flesh and blood were truly and really meat and drink, and that none had life in them, or should have eternal life, but such as eat and drink the same: said, this is an hard saying ; or it is to be objected to; so ayq , an hard thing, the word here used in the Syriac version, and yl[ awh hq , it is to me a hard thing, are phrases used to express an objection in the Talmudic writings, where they are often met with: or it is difficult to be understood and received; so hqh rbdh , an hard saying, or an hard cause, is a cause difficult to be tried and determined, ( Exodus 18:26), and is used of that which seems incredible and absurd, and is surprising and unaccountable: so it is said f286 , that it happened to a certain woman, that she came before R. Abika: she said to him, I have seen a spot; he said to her, perhaps there is a wound in thee; she answered him, yes, and it is healed; he replied, perhaps it may be opened, and the blood brought out; she answered him, yes; and he pronounced her clean. R. Abika saw his disciples look upon one another; and he said unto them, hq rbdh hm , is this an hard saying with you? is it a difficult thing with you? does it seem absurd to you? or are you surprised at it? anything difficult, or which seems irreconcilable, is so called: so the slaying the passover between the two evenings is called by Aben Ezra, in ( Exodus 12:6), hq hlm , an hard saying. In like sense the phrase is used here; and the allusion may be to food that is hard of digestion, since Christ had been speaking of himself under the metaphors of bread and meat. As some of the doctrines of Christ are comparable to milk, which is easy of digestion; others are like to strong meat, which belongs to those of full age, and cannot be digested by children, by babes in Christ, and much less be received, ate, and digested, with ease and pleasure, by carnal minds; who therefore say, as these Capernaites did, who can hear it ? this saying, or doctrine, concerning eating the flesh, and drinking the blood of Christ; or him Christ, who delivered this doctrine: such preaching, and such a preacher, are intolerable; there is no hearing, nor bearing them: hence we afterwards read, that these withdrew from the ministry of Christ, ( John 6:66).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 60-65 - The
    human nature of Christ had not before been in heaven, but being God and man, that wondrous Person was truly said to have come down from heaven. The Messiah's kingdom was not of this world; and they were to understand by faith, what he had said of a spiritual living upon him and his fulness. As without the soul of man the flesh is of no value so without the quickening Spirit of God all forms of religion are dea and worthless. He who made this provision for our souls, alone can teach us these things, and draw us unto Christ, that we may live by faith in him. Let us apply to Christ, thankful that it is declared tha every one who is willing to come unto him shall be made welcome.

    Hard (sklhrov). See on Matt. xxv. 24; Jude 14. According to the Greek order, hard is this saying.

    Hear it (autou akouein). Aujtou may be rendered Him, but this is not probable. Hear means a docile hearing, with a view to receiving what is heard. Compare x. 3, 16, 27; xii. 47; xviii. 37.
