Five Loaves and Two Fish

John: Five Loaves and Two Fish

Scripture: John 6:1-15 (NRSV)

Jesus may have been an amazing carpenter, but his arithmetic was off–thankfully. The Messiah’s math doesn’t add up in our human thinking. Jesus’ geometry is not zero-based, which means the more you give the less you have. Rather, the Master’s mathematics is eternity-based: the more you give, the more there is to go around. Little is much in the hands of Jesus–even five loaves and two fish.
