Jesus feeds a lot of people with a small amount of food
This study is one of a series of Studies in Markís Gospel. It is a draft study that we are rewriting in EasyEnglish.
Mark 6:30-34 (see Markís Gospel in EasyEnglish)
A lot of people had come to hear Jesus. They were far from home and it was getting late. The people were hungry and needed feeding. The only food they had was five loaves of bread and two fish. Jesus thanked God for the food. The food was shared around everyone. After everyone had eaten and was happy, there was still food left over.
V33 Why had so many people gathered? Why was Jesus so well known? Could this happen now?
V34 Why didnít Jesus send the people away? What did the people really need?
V35 Why were the people out so late?
V41 What did Jesus do before handing out the food and why? Why did Jesus feed the large crowd? Why was so much left over afterwards? Where did the food come from?
Share a meal together.
Miracle ~ a great thing that only God can do.
