when
Matthew 14:15-21
15
When it was evening, the disciples came to Him and said, "This place is desolate and the hour is already late; so send the crowds away, that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves."
16
But Jesus said to them, "They do not need to go away; you give them [something] to eat!"
17
They said to Him, "We have here only five loaves and two fish."
18
And He said, "Bring them here to Me."
19
Ordering the people to sit down on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed [the food], and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples [gave them] to the crowds,
20
and they all ate and were satisfied. They picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve full baskets.
21
There were about five thousand men who ate, besides women and children.
Mark 6:35
When it was already quite late, His disciples came to Him and said, "This place is desolate and it is already quite late;
Mark 6:36-44
36
send them away so that they may go into the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something to eat."
37
But He answered them, "You give them [something] to eat!" And they said to Him, "Shall we go and spend two hundred denarii on bread and give them [something] to eat?"
38
And He said to them, "How many loaves do you have? Go look!" And when they found out, they said, "Five, and two fish."
39
And He commanded them all to sit down by groups on the green grass.
40
They sat down in groups of hundreds and of fifties.
41
And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed [the food] and broke the loaves and He kept giving [them] to the disciples to set before them; and He divided up the two fish among them all.
42
They all ate and were satisfied,
43
and they picked up twelve full baskets of the broken pieces, and also of the fish.
44
There were five thousand men who ate the loaves.
John 6:1
After these things Jesus went away to the other side of the Sea of Galilee (or Tiberias).
John 6:5-15
5
Therefore Jesus, lifting up His eyes and seeing that a large crowd was coming to Him, said to Philip, "Where are we to buy bread, so that these may eat?"
6
This He was saying to test him, for He Himself knew what He was intending to do.
7
Philip answered Him, "Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, for everyone to receive a little."
8
One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said to Him,
9
"There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what are these for so many people?"
10
Jesus said, "Have the people sit down." Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.
11
Jesus then took the loaves, and having given thanks, He distributed to those who were seated; likewise also of the fish as much as they wanted.
12
When they were filled, He said to His disciples, "Gather up the leftover fragments so that nothing will be lost."
13
So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves which were left over by those who had eaten.
14
Therefore when the people saw the sign which He had performed, they said, "This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world."
15
So Jesus, perceiving that they were intending to come and take Him by force to make Him king, withdrew again to the mountain by Himself alone.
