Jesus and his disciples crossed the Sea of Galilee in a boat, but people saw
where they were going and came out of the surrounding cities and were waiting
for them on the other side of the sea. When Jesus saw the people, he felt
sorry for them. They were like a flock of sheep without a shepherd to lead
them. Jesus spoke to them about the kingdom of God and healed those who needed
healing. It was getting late in the day and the disciples came to him and
suggested that he send the crowd away so they could go into the neighboring
countryside and villages to find a place to eat and spend the night. Jesus
said, "They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat." The
disciples knew they didn't have enough money to buy food for all those people.
There were about 5,000 men plus all the women and children! He asked Philip
where they could buy bread. Philip said that it would cost 200 denarii to buy
enough bread for each person to have just a little. Andrew, the brother of
Simon Peter, told Jesus that there was a boy in the crowd who had brought a
lunch. The lad, or someone who cared for him, had planned ahead and he had
five barley loaves of bread and two small fish. Then Jesus took the loaves and
gave thanks and started breaking them and passing the bread out to his
disciples. The bread began to multiply and make more bread. They broke the
bread again and again. He did the same with the two fish. They kept passing
out the food until everyone had eaten until they were full. Then Jesus told
the disciples to pick up the remaining food so nothing would be wasted. Do you
know how much was left? There were twelve baskets full of leftover bread and fish!
