Matthew 14:13-21

2014-07-27 — We have no trouble believing in miracles here at Agnus Day Central, the fact that we hit our weekly deadline more often than not is proof positive.

BIBLE PASSAGE — Now when Jesus heard this, he withdrew from there in a boat to a deserted place by himself. But when the crowds heard it, they followed him on foot from the towns. When he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them and cured their sick. When it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a deserted place, and the hour is now late; send the crowds away so that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves.” Jesus said to them, “They need not go away; you give them something to eat.” They replied, “We have nothing here but five loaves and two fish.” And he said, “Bring them here to me.” Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. And all ate and were filled; and they took up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full. And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children. — Proper 13, Series A

    Our minister pointed out that this is just after when John the Baptist was killed. Put this together with your link to Moses leading the Israelites and – if I was Herod’s intelligence officer I’d be pointing out that people are waiting for a Messiah and a relative of the guy you just killed has just demonstrated the capability of managing and sustaining an army in the field.
