Jesus Feeds More Than Four Thousand People with Seven Loaves and Two Fishes
“and he took the seven loaves and the fishes; and he gave thanks and brake, and gave to the disciples, and the disciples to the multitudes. And they all ate, and were filled: and they took up that which remained over of the broken pieces, seven baskets full. And they that did eat were four thousand men, besides women and children.” Matthew 15:36-38 ASV
