Jesus Feeds Five Thousand
13As soon as Jesus heard the news, he left in a boat to a remote area to be alone. But the crowds heard where he was headed and followed on foot from many towns.
15That evening 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 food for themselves.”
16But Jesus said, “That isn’t necessary—you feed them.”
17“But we have only five loaves of bread and two fish!” they answered.
18“Bring them here,” he said.
