I'm unsure what to make of Yeshua's remarks in John 6 about consuming his flesh and blood.  Perhaps they're related to the above quotes.  Does the Church of the East take a position on what John 6 speaks about?
John 6 (based on Younan)
53.  And Yeshua said to them,
"Amain, amain I say to you that,
unless you eat the body of the Barh-d'Ansha [of-man his-son, i.e. the Son of Man] and drink his blood,
you have no life in yourselves.[re: 'yourselves': qnuma, translated here as 'self,' literally means 'underlying substance']
54.  And he who eats from my body
and drinks from my blood
has khia-d'l'ailm [life of-to-the world/age, i.e. the world/age of life],
and I will raise him up on the last day.
55.  For certainly my body is food,
and certainly my blood is drink;
56.  he who eats my body and drinks my blood
abides in me and I in him.
57.  As the Living Abba [Father] has sent me,
and I live because of Abba,
and whoever eats of me,
he also will live because of me.
58.  This is the Lkhma [Bread] that has descended from Heaven.
It is not as manna your forefathers ate and died;
he who eats this Lkhma will live forever."
