Jonas, a street urchin, is desperate for bread. When he finds some, knife-wielding thugs try to steal it but he temporarily escapes them. An old beggar then asks Jonas to share his bread with a “hungry soul.” Jonas responds by saying “There’s not enough.” The street thugs show up again and take some of Jonas’ bread from him. Jonas’ is despondent and frustrated with his hunger.

Meanwhile, the local town bakers stay up all night to make fresh bread for the next day’s market. In the morning, Jonas asks for a loaf of bread from one of the bread merchants but is turned away. He feigns illness and the merchant willingly gives him some bread. Then an old woman announces that Jesus, the miracle worker, is nearby. While skeptical, Jonas decides to see this man himself.

Jesus, Peter, and the rest of the disciples are on a boat and see the masses on the shore. Peter asks whether they should set back out to sea but Jesus instructs him to go to them. On shore, Jesus begins healing the sick who have come to see Him.

As the day will soon be ending, Peter and the disciples ask Jesus if He would like to send the people away to get food and shelter. Jesus instructs them to feed the people. They are overwhelmed given that there are over 5,000 people. Jesus tells them to go and see how much food there is among the people. Then, Jonas offers up his five barley loaves and two fish. Jesus blesses the food. The disciples are amazed and fill their baskets to begin feeding the people and discover they have much left over. Jesus retreats in solitude to pray.

As night descends, the disciples get on their boat and are soon caught up in a terrible storm. Frightened, they are amazed to see Jesus walking on water toward them and He implores them to “be not afraid.” When they arrive back on land, the people ask for more bread at which time Jesus explains that He is the bread of life.”

Jonas is convinced that the bread Jesus offers will satisfy one’s hunger forever. This delightful story of the feeding of the 5,000 challenges us to consider afresh the one who is the Bread of Life.

Story Synopsis:
Bread from Heaven is an account of how Jesus has compassion for the multitudes that have come to hear Him minister.

The story begins with a young street urchin named Jonas who is begging for each bit of food he can get. After an incident of trickery, he takes bread from the local bakers, Zeke and Jethro. He refuses to share his bread with an old man who is weak and clearly in need of nourishment. Later Jonas finds himself listening to the words of Jesus on the mountain. He is inspired by His message.

When Jesus asks for food to feed the people, Jonas unselfishly offers the five loaves and two fishes. After Jesus prays over the food, the disciples feed the people. Zeke and Jethro are amazed at the miracle of feeding the masses and come up with a plan to make Jesus king. They want Jesus to perform miracles so they will no longer have to work. When Jesus tells them He is the Bread of Life, the bakers think He is joking and return to their ovens.
