“And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.” -Matthew 14: 19-21
Many people followed Jesus to hear his teachings. It was getting late and many were hungry. The disciples suggested that the crowd should leave to go home and eat. Jesus replied: “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” However, they only had five loaves of bread and two fish. Jesus took the fish, gave thanks and broke the loaves. He gave them to the disciples to feed the crowd. A crowd of over five thousand people ate that day, with twelve basketfuls left over.
Jesus could make a meal fit for a small group feed thousands of people.
