Open your copies of God’s word to Mark 8. As we return to the Gospel of Mark we see another common scene in Jesus’ life. Great crowds continue to come to Jesus everywhere he goes. This crowd has not recently shown up. Mark 8:2 we learn that this crowd has been with Jesus for three days and they have nothing to eat. Listen to what Jesus tells his disciples in verses 2-3.
“I have compassion on the crowd, because they have been with me now three days and have nothing to eat. And if I send them away hungry to their homes, they will faint on the way. And some of them have come from far away.” (Mark 8:2–3 ESV)
