Mulitivision – the feeding of the 5000
Jesus took the five loaves and the two fish. Looking up to heaven, He blessed the food, broke the loaves and kept giving them to the disciples to give to the crowd. He divided up the two fish among them as well. Everyone ate and was satisfied.
What do you get when you combine multiplication and division? Weird math? Impossibilities? Or perhaps, a miracle. The account of the feeding of the 5000 is found in all four of the Gospels. In it, Jesus takes the simple and makes the extraordinary; the impossible and makes a miracle; takes division and makes multiplication. If this is what He does with bread and fish, just imagine what He wants to do with us!
