STILL!

 

There are two recorded instances of the Lord Jesus feeding large crowds.

In Matthew 14:14-21 the feeding of the five thousand is recorded.

In Matthew 15:29-39 the feeding of the four thousand is recorded.

There were several things still true for both miracles.

 

JESUS STILL HAD COMPASSION - 15:29-32, 14:13-16

 

THE DISCIPLES STILL DIDN'T GET IT - 15:33, 14:17
