This is the story of when Jesus was with the disciples and fed the five thousand people, using only the few loaves and fish of the small boy. As the gospel said, the crowds of people were all gathered in a remote place and it was getting late and the disciples wanted to send the people away to the village so they could buy some food. Jesus replied saying it was a bad idea and that we should just feed them the loaves of bread and fish. There wasn 't enough and Jesus looked and prayed to heaven and gave thanks and broke pieces for everyone to eat. He handed them out and fed the disciples, himself, and at least five thousand men, women, and children.
Jesus took the loaves and looked up tp heaven and blessed them. He then broke the loaves and gave them to His disciples and also divided the two fish among them. The people were satisfied and then picked up the wicker baskets and drank from them. Jesus had shown compassion towards the people and had feed them, after he wanted to rest (Mark6:33-44). This corresponds with the Last Supper and Eucharist, Jesus is breaking and giving the bread to the disciples and followers.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1; 1, King James Version). The word of God is all powerful when he spoke things happened, one word from our master and mountains would move. The birth of Jesus was a prophecy that came to pass so this lets me know that this was foreseen as an act of love from our Lord and savior. Jesus giving of himself to save the soul and sins of man shows unconditional love that no one can compare to. God’s purpose impacts my worldview because of the lessons he taught, the miracles he performed, and the death and resurrection he faced.
1500 B.C.Athens was in trouble. The city’s sources of water had dried up, and the ocean was nearly solid salt. Men in Athens survived on the blood of cooked cows, hoping for water, and prayed daily to Zeus for at least a small shower of rain. Plants had yellowed, and dust clogged up nostrils, while the only thing you could hear was the sound of wailing and moaning, and the dry, unforgiving wind. Just as the city was about to die from lack of water, Timotheus, a young man from the city visited the king, and found out about the oracle at Delphi, and had a strong will to save Athens.
Immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.” Then he climbed into the boat with them, and the wind died down. They were completely amazed, for they had not understood about the loaves; their hearts were hardened. Mark 6:45-52 Title: Hold on! Help is on the way Thesis Jesus immediately made his disciples get into the boat to set off for Bethsaida before dispersing the crowd.
As Jesus went on he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John who were mending their nets in their boats, Jesus called them and they immediately dropped their nets and left the boat leaving their father and hired men on the boat. The people Jesus chose to become disciples were ordinary people. They had no special qualifications to become a disciple. He called them in the midst of their everyday life, "Follow me and I will make you fish for people." Our call to discipleship is to follow Jesus in our daily lives.
“In his symbolic use of bread at the Last Supper, Jesus crystallized the link between Christian marriage and Christian eucharist1,” molding them into one and creating a bond that cannot be severed. During his famous last supper with his disciples, Jesus proclaimed a powerful message by combining food and the body. By employing a basic human requirement and creating a metaphor of the human body, Christ shattered previous barriers between social classes. Bread and wine were attainable by most humans and if they represented the body and blood of Jesus, it displayed a sense of community within communion. “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me,” Paul writes of Jesus’ eloquent words in 1 Corinthians 11:24.
What observations do you have about the character of the Holy Spirit in Acts? The Holy Spirit is the gift given by God freely to those who repent their sins and believe in Jesus Christ (Acts 1:4-5, 2:38). It is God’s promise for all the people (2:39). The Holy Spirit is available to any believers even if they are the gentiles. Peter was astonished when he saw that the gentiles also received the Holy Spirit (10:24-48).
This quote shows the significance of the Last Supper. It was at this time that Jesus made a impact on these disciples for eternity. The disciples truly learned at this final meal that the Lord Jesus was and forever will be the chosen one. While they were eating, Jesus took a loaf of bread, and after blessing it he broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body”. Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he gave it to them, saying “Drink from it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
or Jethro his future father-in-law, daughters water their flocks. As thanks for helping his daughters, Reuel asks Moses to eat with them, or “break bread.” In Exodus, the Lord tells the Israelites to bake unleavened bread for their deliverance from Egypt. The Israelites had to leave Egypt quickly and they were told to make unleavened bread because they did not have time for the bread to rise. After the Israelites were delivered from Egypt, they were nomads for many years and were completely dependent on God to provide for them. God provided Manna, a flaky substance that was baked into bread, for them so that they could eat.
