The other interesting thing about that story is that out of the 5,000 people, only two of them had thought to bring any food. So, in a way, it’s, OK, good miracle. But the other side of it is 4,998 idiots with no sense of foresight at all. And Jesus doesn’t make them learn a lesson from that. It’s all fine. “You didn’t bring any food? Of course there’s not going to be any food. Think about it. Plan next time. Judea would be better if people planned.” But, no, it always works out fine. Jesus will magic up some grub. He’s going to get crucified one day, and then what are you going to eat?
