I am curious. Are you one of that species of Christian who insists that the Scriptures are the inspired Word of God, and moreover that their true meaning is found by reading them literally, without regard to an interpretive tradition?
I was just wondering because you seem to read “Then Jesus said unto them, ‘Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you’,” on the basis of some interpretive tradition (dare I say a tradition of men?) that tells you to not take it literally.
