John 6:62 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

What and if ... - Jesus does not say that those who were then present would see him ascend, but he implies that he would ascend. They had taken offence because he said he came down from heaven.

As Jesus was to ascend to heaven, it was clear that he could not have intended literally that they should eat his flesh.
