What then if you should see the Son of Man ascend where He was before? It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. John 6:62-63 (NKJV)

Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." John 6:69 (NKJV)
