Feeding the multitude of our world. JOHN 6:1–15
If I had to choose to be a character in this weekend’s gospel passage, I would surely like to be one of the disciples. I know exactly how stupefied I would have been the moment Jesus instructed my brothers and me to sit the people down with the intention to feed them all from five barley loaves and two fish, with an additional 200 denarii in our pockets.
Yes, I would have seen previous miracles performed by the Master and yes, I would have had some faith in His power, but I would have been confused and somewhat anxious to see exactly how He was going to feed the multitude which had gathered.
