"Give ye them to eat"

A Certain marvelous Bible story appears in each one of the Gospels. It is the only "miracle" that all four recorders have set down—Jesus' feeding of the people with the five loaves and two fishes.

The story tells of the great multitude who surrounded the Master, the multitude who had followed him far, listening to his teaching, experiencing the healing effect of his presence. But evening was upon them and the disciples were troubled. They were in "a desert place," and said to the Master, What is there for the people to eat? Surely it would be better to send them away that they might go to the villages and buy food.
