Mark 8:17-21 Loaves and Fishes


Sometimes I come across things that answer questions I never thought to ask. It’s like in the back of my mind is often the question when reading the Bible, “Why am I being told this?” but seldom really dig into seemingly non-critical points. Except, as this one, it is a very useful understanding.

The odd reference to how many basketfuls of pieces of loaves/fish is marvelously answered by this link. The presentation seemed a little convoluted, but it was well worth the trip, for me. :slight_smile:
