I’m thinking that you are probably familiar with the story of Jesus feeding the crowd with only a loaf of bread and a fish. Apparently, Jesus blessed the food,and when it was passed around the crowd it fed everyone who reached into it.
Now the alternative I have heard is that everyone in the crowd came with enough food for themselves, but were unwilling to expose this in fear of others wanting some. The boy who originally offered what he had brought stirred the emotions in everyone enough so that when the basket came to them they unpacked there "picnic baskets’ and put some of it in with the original loaf and fish. And so everyone was fed.
I personally don’t believe the whole bible, but do enjoy the bible for its stories and morals it instills. So every time I run into a miracle or some faith required situation in the bible I get frustrated. Anyone else know of explanations to miracles in the bible. Say walking on water and the such? (other than the observers of these miracles were on drugs or drunk.)
