It Is Christ Who Feeds

thousands of people
hungry in the wilderness
fed by Jesus’ hand

The Feeding of the Five Thousand by Hendrick de Clerck (1590)

Summary:
In the wilderness, the compassion of God is evident when Jesus feeds a great crowd of men, women and children. He continues to feed us today, through bread and wine, word and presence, community and solitude…

Some discussion Questions:
1. In what ways does Jesus satisfy the hunger of those who believe in him?
2. Using the image of food that is rich and good, what does Isaiah (in Isaiah 55:1-5) want his listeners to experience about God?
3. For whom would we love enough to be willing to be excluded from Gods family, if it led to their inclusion?
