Jesus feeding the 5,000 is a well-known story. It’s difficult to mess up, and, at the same time, introduce anything really new.

With this in mind I used this opportunity to give the Main Street students some perspective on where we were in the New Testament; particularly the books we are pulling the stories of Jesus from: the Gospels. I had them all grab Bibles (either their own, or the ones we have available in the room) and turn to the location of the story, as well as the beginning of the New Testament. I talked about how the life of Jesus is recorded from 4 different angles and perspectives: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Then we read the story of Jesus’ feeding the multitude miracle and walked through the text expositionally. It was really worthwhile.
