Feeding the Five Thousand : Studies in the Judaic Background of Mark 6:30-44 par. and John 6:1-15 Paperback / softback

Part of the Studies in Judaism series

Description

The story of Jesus feeding the five thousand is found in all four Gospels, and is told in two of them twice.

Roger David Aus primarily explores the many facets of early Palestinian Judaism which inform the story, especially in regard to the miracle-worker Elisha.

He describes four major motifs in the narrative, as well as the Markan and Johannine redaction.

In addition, he analyzes the account's Semitic background, genre and historicity, and its part in a miracle collection.
