  1. I sometimes think about what the poor aposles went through trying to figure out what Jesus meant by whatever he just said. “He said he is hungry. Does he mean hungry or something else?” “He said he wants to go to the next town. Does he mean the next town or something else?” No wonder they were confused when he said he was going to die; well he said it several times. “He said he is going to die. Does he mean dying or something else?”

  2. There is another point that might have been a sign to those asking for one, had they chosen to be sincerely looking for signs, that is not mentioned in the text, probably because it is beyond the main point, yet is interesting to me. It was pointed out in a recorded seminar that I heard. The feeding of the 5000 was in what the Jews of that day called the “Land of the Twelve” (God fearing Jews near Capernaum), where they picked up 12 baskets full of leftovers. The feeding of the 4000 was in what they called the “Land of the Seven” (wicked nations across the lake), where they picked up 7 baskets full of leftovers.
