First Sunday after Trinity
Feeding the Five Thousand
I hope you are well.
Today we are learning about the fabulous miracle that Jesus did in front of a huge crowd in fact 5,000 people ! Wow !
The story can be found in your Bible, Matthew 14 or Matthew 6.
As time passed, the crowds who came to listen to Jesus grew larger and larger. Jesus spoke for many hours but the time past quickly. Late in the afternoon there was still a large crowd gathered round him. It had been a long day and they were all hungry. The disciples said “send the people away as we cannot feed them all.” Then the disciple Andrew said “Here is a small boy with five barley loaves and two small fish but it certainly isn’t enough to feed all these people”. Jesus said “Tell everyone to sit down on the grass” and he took the bread and fish and thanked God for them. Then Jesus gave the food to the disciples who kept breaking it to give to the people. All the crowd ate as much as they wanted. The disciples collected the leftovers and were able to fill twelve baskets, five thousand had been fed that day !!
What an amazing story.
