Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand

Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves > Byzantine Era Mosaic > Tabgha, Israel

Mark 6:37-44

Mark composed two Sacred Geometry stories about feeding a multitude of people. In the first story the twelve apostles return after Jesus gave them "authority" and sent them out "two by two." When they return, the twelve inform Jesus that the crowd that comes to see him is hungry. Jesus and the twelve then feed the multitude which includes 5,000 men with five loaves and two fish having enough leftovers of fish to fill twelve baskets (Mk 6:34-44). In the second story Jesus feeds another multitude including about 4,000 men with seven loaves and a few fish having enough leftovers to fill 7 baskets (Mk 8:1-9).

The gospel authors highly valued the story of how Jesus fed five thousand men because it is the only story that appears in all four gospels. On a literal level, the two stories report how Jesus feeds a multitude of people by means of a miracle. On a spiritual level, the two stories are allegories for receiving spiritual instruction and knowledge as food for the soul. The two stories are sacred geometry riddles using the Greek practices of isopsephia and gematria to "prove" the raising of Jesus. By identifying the isopsephia value of the key words in each story and correctly interpreting the drawing instructions disguised in the imagery of the narration, the underlying geometry diagrams in each story are constructed verse by verse.
