The Feeding Of Five Thousand

12 Now the day began to draw to a close, so the twelve came and said to Jesus, "Send the crowd away, so they can go into the surrounding villages and countryside and find lodging and food, because we are in an isolated place." 13 But he said to them, "You give them something to eat." They replied, "We have no more than five loaves and two fish -- unless we go and buy food for all these people." 14 (Now about five thousand men were there.) Then he said to his disciples, "Have them sit down in groups of about fifty each."
