The Miracle of Multiplication08-02-2020Rev. Victor C. Yakubu, Parochial Administrator
Jesus multiplied two fish and five loaves for a multitude of people. He knew that the people depended on him while he taught them by the hillside. When it was time to depart and go back to their homes, he did not allow them to empty handed. He instructed the apostles to give them something to eat. They could only find two fish and five loaves. Jesus multiplied them and gave them out for the people to eat.
Anytime we read this section in the Bible, we are always moved with surprise that Jesus could multiply few loves of bread and fish for a large gathering. However, we should not be surprised completely and lose the point. Jesus is the son of God. He came from the Father to show us how much he loves us. He used many difficult and impossible situations to reveal, to us piece by piece how much he cares about us. Instead of believing in God’s ultimate power, we question everything about him.
Consider this fact. Five thousand men excluding women and children ate from the two fish and five loaves. Do you know how much food five thousand men could eat? What about the women and their children? Combining the food that came from the fish and bread gives us the courage to term this a miracle. Our faith teaches us that Jesus did many other miracles to substantiate his position as God’s Only begotten son.READ MORE
