Jesus Fed Many People

Matthew 14:13–21

One day Jesus wanted to be alone. He got on a boat and sailed to a quiet place. Soon many people followed Him there.

Jesus taught the people and healed the ones who were sick. At the end of the day, everyone started feeling hungry. Jesus’s disciples wanted Him to send the people away to buy food in the city.

Jesus told His disciples to feed the people so they wouldn’t have to leave. A boy had five loaves of bread and two fish. But it wasn’t enough to feed everyone.

Jesus blessed the food and broke it into pieces. Then the disciples passed it out to the people. Would there be enough food?

Thousands of children, women, and men ate the bread and fish. After they finished eating, 12 baskets of food were left over! It was a miracle. Miracles still happen on earth today.
