I don’t know about you, but when I am late in eating a meal, I sometimes feel lightheaded and weak. A good lunch or dinner takes care of that and restores strength. At first glance, the feeding of the 5000 in the reading from John is about hungry people regaining their strength through a miraculous multiplication of loaves and fishes. But wait, the reading speaks of the Passover, the Jewish feast celebrating Israel’s deliverance from Egypt. In feeding the 5000, Jesus replaces the Passover with a new meal in which he, the bread of life, distributes himself; this spiritual food gives strength to all believers.
