Recorded in all four Gospels, John reports that five barley loaves and two small fish were used by Jesus to feed a multitude.
After healing the sick, giving thanks to God and breaking the loaves, Jesus directed His disciples to feed the onlooking crowd of fifty groups of one hundred. After all ate, there were twelve baskets of food left over.
The miracle is taken as a sign that Jesus is the true Messiah.
