Lesson 30: Jesus Feeds 5,000 People

Supplies:
Bread and fish cutouts
Picture of the little boy

One day Jesus was talking to a big group of people all day long. There were 5,000 people listening to Jesus that day. People started to get really hungry. But they didn't want to go home. They wanted to listen to Jesus. Jesus knew that the people were hungry. He asked his friends, the disciples, to find food for the people. That was a BIG job! There were so many people! The disciples tried to find food. They found one little boy who had five loaves of bread and two fish (show little boy picture).


The disciples asked the little boy if they could give Jesus his supper. The boy said, "yes, I would be happy to give Jesus my supper."

The disciples brought the food to Jesus (show fish and bread cutouts).


Five loaves of bread and two fish would not be enough for so many people. It would only be enough for one or two people. But Jesus knew what to do. He broke the bread and fish into pieces. He broke them more and more and more. The disciples started giving pieces of food to the people. They gave food to all the men and women and children who were listening to Jesus. There was so much food that everybody could eat as much as they wanted! Everybody ate until they were not hungry anymore. They ate and ate and ate.

Jesus fed all of those people with one little boy's supper. All the people ate until they did not want anymore food. And there was lots and lots of food left over! Jesus took care of all those hungry people. Isn't Jesus wonderful?

The words of this story were copied from some preschool Bible flashcards that belong to my mom (copyright by CRC Publications 1988...this is the only info I have on the cards. I'm not sure where they originally came from). I am posting this for Sunday School and homeschooling purposes only and I do not claim myself as the author of these stories.
