84. “Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates The Claims Of The Gospels” By J. Warner Wallace

84. (b) “And He said to them, ‘Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest awhile.’ For there were many people coming and going and they did not have even time to eat. They went away in a boat to a secluded place by themselves. The people saw them going and many recognized them and ran their together on foot from all the cities and got their ahead of them. When Jesus went ashore, and He saw a large crowd and felt compassion for them because they were like sheep without a shepherd, and He began to teach them many things. When it was already quite late, His disciples came to Him and said, ‘This place is desolate, and it is already quite late. Send them away so that they can go to the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something to eat.’ And He said to them, ‘You give them something to eat.’ And they said to Him, ‘Shall we go and spend 200 denari on bread and give them something to eat?’ And He said to them, ‘How many loaves do you have? Go look.’ And when they found out and said, ‘5 and 2 fish.’ And He commanded them all to sit down in groups on the green grass. They sat down in groups of 100’s and of 50’s. And He took the 5 loaves and the 2 fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed the food and broke the loaves, and He kept giving to the disciples set before them. And He divided up the 2 fish among them all. They all ate and were satisfied. And they picked up 12 full baskets of broken pieces and also of the fish. There were 5000 men who ate the loaves.—Mark 6:30-44.” ~ J. Warner Wallace
