(20) Jesus feeds 5,000 people

Jesus went off to a remote area to be alone.
But the people heard where he was going and
followed from many villages.
When Jesus saw the large crowd,
and he had compassion n them and healed their sick.
That evening the disciples came to Jesus and said,
"It is getting late, we should send the crowd away
so they can go to the villages and
buy food for themselves."
But Jesus told them'
"That's not necessary, you feed them."
"We can't." they replied.
"We have only 5 loaves and 2 fish!"
"Bring them to me." Jesus said.
Then Jesus took the 5 loaves and 2 fish, looked up heaven,
and asked God's blessing on the food.
Jesus broke the loaves into pieces, and
gave some bread and fish to each disciple,
and the disciples gave them to the people.
They all ate as much as they wanted,
and there were 12 baskets of leftovers.
