Bible Notes

Matthew 14:18-21 (15.05.19)

Matthew 14:18-21 NIV
“Bring them here to me,” he said. [19] And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. [20] They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. [21] The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.

Does this sound at all similar – where else does Jesus take bread, break it and give thanks? The Last Supper. Could it be that Matthew telling us that in communion Jesus meets us and feeds us as he did then, only now it is with himself?

Thank you Jesus for meeting our needs in yourself.
