Jesus Feeds Five Thousand People

As the days rolled by the crowds grew and the people gathered wherever Jesus went. He taught them, healed their sick and told them parables about the kingdom of heaven. One day they gathered on a hillside for another round of signs and stories. As it grew dark Peter leapt to his feet.

This is all very well, Lord, but it’s getting late and we’ve got this bunch to feed now, look at them, thousands of the vultures and they’re ravenous!

Peter, they’re people.


These vultures, they happen to be people.

I don’t care if they’re furry kittens... They’re starving, and now they think you can feed ‘em.
