Midrash on the Feeding of the Multitudes
When Jesus spoke about His miracles in feeding the 5,000 and feeding the 4,000 He indicated there was a special spiritual significance in what He had done (Mark.8: 17 - 21). He said the disciples had hard hearts, were dull and had little faith because they did not understand these things. Could the same be said of us today? These 10 sermons are my midrash or spiritual interpretation of the feeding of the multitudes God gave me over a number of years of studying in this area. I am convinced there is a spiritual message that undergirds these historic accounts that brings great illumination to the gospel, the person of Jesus, what He came to do and what He will do in the future. This is indepth teaching designed for those who are at least acquainted with the scriptures to a reasonable level. May the Lord bless you as you explore His Word!
