Feeding Multitudes…in the Old Testament?

We know and enjoy the stories of Yeshua feeding the multitudes miraculously with only a few loaves of bread and fish.  But did you realize that the prophet Elisha did a similar thing?  His multitude was only 100 men, but it still was a miraculous provision of YHWH.  This is another example of the cohesiveness of the entire Bible.  Our Elohim doesn’t change.  Praise His Name!

A man came from Ba‘al-Shalishah bringing the man of God twenty loaves of bread made from the barley firstfruits and fresh ears of grain in his sack. Elisha said, “Give this to the people to eat.”  His servant said, “How am I to serve this to a hundred men?” But he said, “Give it to the people to eat; for Adonai says that they will eat and have some left over.”  So he served them, and they ate and had some left over, as Adonai had said.  ~~ 2 Kings 4: 42-44
