The disciples thought Jesus’ instruction to feed a crowd of thousands of listeners was an impossibility—until Jesus miraculously produced more than enough food from just five loaves and two fish! This should have, and did, cause quite a stir, because no ordinary person could do such a thing. Who, Alistair Begg asks, is this compassionate man Jesus? The Bible describes Him as the only one who can satisfy our deepest needs—but only when we admit we are lost without Him.
30The apostles returned to Jesus and told him all that they had done and taught.
13Now when Jesus heard this, he withdrew from there in a boat to a desolate place by himself. But when the crowds heard it, they followed him on foot from the towns.
