John 6:40 For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in Him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.
To be sure that everyone understood what He was saying (and understands today when we read His words in our time), Jesus repeats what He just said, with some amplification the second time round. It is God's will that everyone who looks upon - that is, trusts in - the Son (that's Jesus) should have eternal life. And that starts today, at the moment when we entrust ourselves to Him. And Jesus Himself, who was raised from the dead to prove that death was defeated and had no hold on God's people, is responsible for raising each of us who trust in Him.
