John 6 chiasm

John 6:53-57
A. Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves.

B. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.

C. For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink.

B’. He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.

A’. As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also shall live because of Me.

Does it make sense if it is restructured helically?
A. Eating the flesh and blood of Jesus is the only source of life
  A’ What is more, He lives in the Father and those that eat His body live in Him
B. Whoever eats from Him has eternal life and resurrection
  B’ What is more, it is a shared communion
C. His flesh and blood are true food and drink

Again?
A/A’ Life proceeds from the Father, through the Son, to those in communion
B/B’ What is more, this communion is an intimate sharing of the very life of God
C What is more, His life is our only sustenance
