The Boy with the Barley Cakes and Fish

Lifting up his eyes, Jesus saw a great number of people coming to, where he was, and he said to Philip, Where may we get bread for all these people?

This he said, testing him: for he had no doubt what he himself would do.

Philip made answer, Bread to the value of two hundred pence would not be enough even to give everyone a little.

One of his disciples, Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, said to Jesus, There is a boy here with five barley cakes and two fishes;

but what is that among such a number?

Jesus said, Let the people be seated.

Now there was much grass in that place.

And those seated on the grass were about five thousand.

Then Jesus took the cakes and having given praise to God, he gave them to the people who were seated, and the fishes in the same way, as much as they had need of.

And when they had had enough, Jesus said to his disciples, Take up the broken bits which are over, so that nothing may be wasted.

So they took them up: twelve baskets full of broken bits of the five cakes which were over after the people had had enough.

When the people saw the sign which he had done, they said, Truly, this is the prophet which is to come into the world.

Additional Reading

This is the only one of Jesus' signs that is spoken of by all those who wrote about him in the gospels.

So, this had a great effect on them all.

We would give it the name, miracle, in English.

It lets us see a lovely thing.

The disciples had come back from their journey through the villages.

Jesus wanted to be alone with them so he took them to a quiet place far away in the direction of the North.

A great number of men and women came to where he was.

But he was not too busy.

He took time to give special attention to them, to see their need of food and to say things that were a help to them.

The real sense of this sign is that the needs of all could be covered by God, even when there was a great number of persons there.

Before Jesus gave the food to the disciples he gave it his blessing.

He would not take food without giving thanks to the Giver of all good gifts.

This was a usual thing for all Jews, and they had a special form of words for it.

The help which Jesus gave to this great number of people was more than enough for they took up twelve baskets full of food after all had been fed.
