Reflection/meditation: Two miracles

Is this a contradiction to the temptations?
Or is it a confirmation of power for the sake of his disciples?

Why would Jesus, having rejected the miraculous turning of stones into bread, now prove just what he could do by feeding five thousand people with five small loaves and only two fish?

Why would he, having rejected being saved by angels in a fall from the Temple roof, now walk on water to save his disciples from a storm on the lake?

Is he going back on his word?
Is he giving in to the temptation to display supernatural powers?
Or is he demonstrating the complete love of God by being concerned about the welfare of the ordinary folk around him, who always seemed to be the last concern for those who had the power to help.
