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 spiritual interpretation of the feeding of the multitudes I believe 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. So, I place the recordings here so that you can examine the Word of God yourself, and see if the Spirit witnesses the same to your spirit?
