Here’s an interesting Bible study for you to do yourself.
First, read what Jesus says in John 6:50. Notice the context too (6:41-58.) Ponder 6:50 again. Maybe even write it out. Then look up Genesis 2:17. Notice also the context leading up to it, 2:8-17. You may want to write 2:17 out too, underneath the verse from John.
When you have both verses written out, take some time to notice the connections between the two verses. Notice what Jesus is saying in relation to the statement from the Lord in Genesis.
How does the statement in John 6:50 tie Jesus and His work all the way back to what God said Genesis?
What was the consequence for disobeying God’s word in Genesis 2:17?
What were the two special trees in the Garden?
What was God’s specific instructions regarding each tree?
Based on Genesis 3:22, what was the effect of eating from the Tree of Life?
How does this relate to what Jesus is offering in John 6:50?
Now, for even more exploration, think about what the Tree that caused death was related to.
Now look up Proverbs 1:7 & 3:13-18. Notice 3:18 especially.
How is all this related to the two trees?
How is it related to what Adam was seeking when he bit the fruit? …to what happened to him as a consequence?
And, finally, how is all of it related to what Jesus offers in John 6?
Now, just to blow your mind, read Revelation 22:1-2.
How does this tie back into all the verses you just read?
How does this relate to your destiny as a believer?
…Isn’t God’s word amazing?
