The ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning and bread and flesh in the evening, and he drank from the brook. Bible other translations

“bread and flesh.” The use of “bread and flesh” here in 1 Kings 17:6 is interesting wording in light of John 6, where Christ said that his followers would eat his flesh and drink his blood (John 6:53-58). God temporarily sustained Elijah with bread and flesh, but the bread and flesh of Jesus Christ results in everlasting life.
