“And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things” Mark 6:34
The apostles had just returned from the surrounding area after ministering there. The scripture tells us that they had wanted to rest a bit. No one can blame them, for it truly is a task in meeting the needs of the multitude.
The Gospel of Mark, King James Version, begins at verse thirty in the sixth chapter telling of Jesus’ miracle feeding five thousand people with only a few fish and loaves of bread happened.
“And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they taught.” Mark 6:30
“And Jesus said unto them, ‘Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while:’ for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.” Mark 6:31
“And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him. And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.” Mark 6: 33-34
How Many Loaves Have Ye?
Five Loaves And Two Fishes
“And when the day was now far spent, his disciples came into him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed: Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.” Mark 6:35-36
He answered and said into them, ‘Give ye them to eat.’ And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat? He saith unto them, ‘ How many loaves have ye? go and see.’ And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.” Mark 6:37-38
And They Did All Eat
“And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass. And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.” Mark 6:39-40
The Miracle Of Feeding The Five Thousand
And when he had taken the five loaves and two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided among them all. And they did all eat, and we’re filled. And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fish. And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men. Mark 6:41-44
That day was an awesome day for sure. Jesus and his compassion for people, and those with out a Shepherd, got fed by a miracle from Jesus. Amen to that!!!
