They called him Rabbi because of the wonderful stories he told filled with life-lessons. It was easy to listen to him, for he almost always made the stories interesting and fun.
But the crowd had followed him into the desert and they had been there for three days now. They were far from the nearest market and had not eaten in all that time, except for one little boy.
One of the men commented that they should send them away to buy food for themselves, they didn't have enough to buy the quantity of food necessary for such a crowd. While they continued discussing what they would do, the Rabbi said, "You feed them." The little boy who had been listening to the mens' discussions held up the rest of his lunch to the Rabbi. With a smile he took it and looking up to heaven blessed the little loaves and the fishes.
As he began to hand out portions to the other men, there just seemed to be no end. The eyes of those who had been sitting on the grasses closest to the Rabbi began to widen. But they kept on eating until they were full. Once all had had their fill, the Rabbi sent the little boy home to his mother with twelve full baskets.
