And when He looked round and saw an immense crowd coming towards Him, He said to Philip, "Where shall we buy bread for all these people to eat?" He said this to put Philip to the test, for He Himself knew what He was going to do. "Seven pounds' worth of bread," replied Philip, "is not enough for them all to get even a scanty meal." read more.
One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to Him, "There is a boy here with five barley loaves and a couple of fish: but what is that among so many?" "Make the people sit down," said Jesus. The ground was covered with thick grass; so they sat down, the adult men numbering about 5,000. Then Jesus took the loaves, and after giving thanks He distributed them to those who were resting on the ground; and also the fish in like manner--as much as they desired. When all were fully satisfied, He said to His disciples, "Gather up the broken portions that remain over, so that nothing be lost." Accordingly they gathered them up; and with the fragments of the five barley loaves--the broken portions that remained over after they had done eating--they filled twelve baskets.





"Seven pounds' worth of bread," replied Philip, "is not enough for them all to get even a scanty meal."


But when evening was come, the disciples came to Him and said, "This is an uninhabited place, and the best of the day is now gone; send the people away to go into the villages and buy something to eat." "They need not go away," replied Jesus; "you yourselves must give them something to eat." "We have nothing here," they said, "but five loaves and a couple of fish." read more.
"Bring them here to me," He said, and He told all the people to sit down on the grass. Then He took the five loaves and the two fish, and after looking up to heaven and blessing them, He broke up the loaves and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples distributed them to the people. So all ate, and were fully satisfied. The broken portions that remained over they gathered up, filling twelve baskets. Those who had eaten were about 5,000 adult men, without reckoning women and children.

By this time it was late; so His disciples came to Him, and said, "This is a lonely place, and the hour is now late: send them away that they may go to the farms and villages near here and buy themselves something to eat." "Give them food yourselves," He replied. "Are we," they asked, "to go and buy two hundred shillings' worth of bread and give them food?" read more.
"How many loaves have you?" He inquired; "go and see." So they found out, and said, "Five; and a couple of fish." So He directed them to make all sit down in companies on the green grass. And they sat down in rows of hundreds and of fifties. Then He took the five loaves and the two fish, and lifting His eyes to Heaven He blessed the food. Then He broke the loaves into portions which He went on handing to the disciples to distribute; giving pieces also of the two fish to them all. All ate and were fully satisfied. And they carried away broken portions enough to fill twelve baskets, besides pieces of the fish. Those who ate the bread were 5,000 adult men.

Now when the day began to decline, the Twelve came to Him and said, "Send the people away, that they may go to the villages and farms round about and find lodging and a supply of food; because here we are in an uninhabited district." "You yourselves," He said, "must give them food." "We have nothing," they replied, "but five loaves and a couple of fish, unless indeed we were to go and buy provisions for all this host of people." But He said to His disciples, "Make them sit down in parties of about fifty each." read more.
They did so, making them all, without exception, sit down. Then He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to Heaven He blessed them and broke them into portions which He gave to the disciples to distribute to the people. So they ate and were fully satisfied, all of them; and what they had remaining over was gathered up, twelve baskets of fragments.

Upon receiving these tidings, Jesus went away by boat to an uninhabited and secluded district; but the people heard of it and followed Him in crowds from the towns by land. So Jesus went out and saw an immense multitude, and felt compassion for them, and cured those of them who were out of health. But when evening was come, the disciples came to Him and said, "This is an uninhabited place, and the best of the day is now gone; send the people away to go into the villages and buy something to eat." read more.

When the Apostles had re-assembled round Jesus, they reported to Him all they had done and all they had taught. Then He said to them, "Come away, all of you, to a quiet place, and rest awhile." For there were many coming and going, so that they had no time even for meals. Accordingly they sailed away in the boat to a solitary place apart. read more.
But the people saw them going, and many knew them; and coming by land they ran together there from all the neighbouring towns, and arrived before them. So when Jesus landed, He saw a vast multitude; and His heart was moved with pity for them, because they were like sheep which have no shepherd, and He proceeded to teach them many things. By this time it was late; so His disciples came to Him, and said, "This is a lonely place, and the hour is now late: send them away that they may go to the farms and villages near here and buy themselves something to eat."

The Apostles, on their return, related to Jesus all they had done. Then He took them and withdrew to a quiet retreat, to a town called Bethsaida. But the immense crowd, aware of this, followed Him; and receiving them kindly He proceeded to speak to them of the Kingdom of God, and those who needed to be restored to health, He cured. Now when the day began to decline, the Twelve came to Him and said, "Send the people away, that they may go to the villages and farms round about and find lodging and a supply of food; because here we are in an uninhabited district." read more.
