I understand you want to see the President not respond, so you can take a hit at him. He has a mail threat of ricin as well as a bombing in Boston. You may not like him, yet the secret service makes the call where it is safe for him to travel. He still is the President.
JOHN Chapter 6 10-11
VERSE 10 - "Jesus said, "Have the people sit down." Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, about five thousand in number."
So this mountain had grass, which had to make a better seat than the rocks that are typical for that area.
John says there were about five thousand men, but the Greek term used here is gender specific, meaning that only the men were usually numbered, so the whole crowd, including men, women and children, could have been four times that number.
To put this in context: This crowd was nearly as large as was the capacity of the largest theaters in the major cities of that time, (such as Ephesus). The seating capacity of the Roman coliseum was between 50,000-70,000, probably the largest in the world.
So, that's a lot of hungry people isn't it?
But verse 11 says:
VERSE 11 - "Jesus then took the loaves, and when he had given thanks he distributed them to those who were seated; also the fish, and as much as they wanted."
No I.D. No Verification of income nor Discrimination....Fed them as much as they wanted and gather the rest to use again..hmmmmm
