   Hungry Crowds

Jesus took them to a place in which they can find their comfort and their food.


  What some scholars believe that Mark displays a miracle to satisfy the crowd in a manner approaching the Last Supper. Christ draws hearts of his disciples not to fill bodies, to enjoy his body and blood of Hearts. The satisfaction of the crowd was not just a miracle among the thousands of miracles that made our Lord Jesus, its purpose was not just a declaration of love and compassion toward the hungry masses, but had a meaning of its own, which is that true faith

requires a lot of sacrifices and pain, but the end, be happy. It is no stranger to great moral teacher as Christ be always in the right way and be of great has to persuade people.
