Where did those who left Jesus go?

At school - classroom is being used so I can't get to the other journals for a few minutes.

At the Fishers of Men session this morning, we were talking about some of the harder, more provocative things Jesus said. I mentioned the fact that some of his followers left Him - especially when he talked about eating His flesh and drinking His blood.

But then I wondered out loud: What happened to those people?

Did they come back - like Peter?

Did they watch and linger on the fringe of the new movement but never came back?

Did they return to the Jewish - or whatever - faith they had been part of and remain there?

Did some of them become angry and openly oppose Christianity - maybe even helping with the persecution of it?

Did some of them get lost and give up on faith or religion?

There seems to be a potential story in there somewhere! 

Pax et bonum
