**Quick Note to our Listeners! Nicole is off for the next few weeks, so while she enjoys some much-needed time off, we hope you enjoy hearing from some of Nicole’s friends in our latest series, “Questions Jesus Asked.”

Have you ever felt Jesus speak to you? Maybe you had a sudden urge that God wanted you to do or say something? There are going to be times in our lives when we are confronted with this, and it may not make any sense to us. So how do we learn to stay, listen, and wait for Jesus to reveal himself in these times?

In this new series, we will be diving deep into questions Jesus asks throughout The Bible and what they mean for us today. In today’s episode guest host, Erin Rose, is back with us breaking down the question, “You don’t want to leave too, do you?”

As a reminder, here are the three questions we ask each show:
1. What does the passage say?
2. What's the backstory, what's the context?
3. What does it mean? What are the principles of this passage?

Today's Scripture: John 6:60-70
60 On hearing it, many of his disciples said, “This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?” 61 Aware that his disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them, “Does this offend you? 62 Then what if you see the Son of Man ascend to where he was before! 63 The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit[a] and life. 64 Yet there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus had known from the beginning which of them did not believe and who would betray him. 65 He went on to say, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled them.” 66 From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him. 67 “You do not want to leave too, do you?” Jesus asked the Twelve. 68 Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69 We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.” 70 Then Jesus replied, “Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!”
