John 6:57 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

The living Father (ὁ ζῶν πατὴρ)

A phrase found nowhere else in the New Testament. On living and live, see John 1:4.

By the Father (διὰ τὸν πατέρα)

Wrong. Render, because of, as Rev. Because the Father is the living One. So, because of me, instead of by me.
