Jesus: Fish and Loaves

Jesus performed many miracles during his time on the earth. One of his well-known miracles is the miracle of the loaves and fish.

One day, Jesus crossed the Sea of Galilee with His disciples. Many people followed Him because they had seen the miracles he had performed. Jesus went and sat down with his disciples on the mountainside. He saw a great crowd of people coming toward him. He soon began healing the sick.

When evening came, the disciples were ready to send the crowd away as they could get food. But Jesus knew what he was going to do.

One of his disciples had noticed a boy with five small loaves of bread and two fish. But surely that wasn't enough to feed all these people! About five thousand men had gathered by this time. 

Jesus took the five loaves and the two fish. He gave thanks. Then the disciples passed the bread and fish out to all the people. Everyone had enough to eat.

When everyone was done eating, Jesus asked his disciples to gather the food that was left over. The disciples gathered enough to fill twelve baskets.

After Jesus performed the great miracle, many more people believed in him.
