    I ONLY GOT ENOUGH FOR 5000


    Feeding the multitude is a term used to refer to two separate miracles of Jesus reported in the Gospels. The first miracle, "Feeding of the 5,000", is reported by all four gospels (Matthew 14-Matthew 14:13-21; Mark 6-Mark 6:31-44; Luke 9-Luke 9:12-17; John 6-John 6:1-14).

    The second miracle, the "Feeding of the 4,000", with seven loaves of bread and fish, is reported by Matthew 15 (Matthew 15:32-39) and Mark 8 (Mark 8:1-9), but not by Luke or John.


    As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, "This is a remote place, and it's already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food." Jesus said that they did not need to go away, and therefore the disciples were to give them something to eat.


    Where is Jesus today and if it is not Jesus's means to feed millions of other empty stomachs whose responsibility is it. Is it the churches, the local or state governments. Are we to accept Jesus based upon the past but not the present. Shouldn't empirical evidence reflect that Jesus is the same today as he was Yesterday. Where are the two fishes and five loaves of bread. Better yet where are the government subsidies.


    There are no reasons why adults and children should go hungry in this world. What was the message Jesus made feeding people then but not now. Just to know it can be done is not as important as it being done. I don't want to read what Jesus did, what has he done lately.
