In Christianity, feeding the multitude comprises two separate miracles of Jesus, reported in the Gospels, in which Jesus used modest resources to feed thousands of followers who had gathered to see him heal the sick.

Feeding the multitudes by Bernardo Strozzi, early 17th century.

The first miracle, the "Feeding of the 5,000", is the only miracle—aside from the resurrection—recorded in all four gospels[1] (Matthew 14:13–21;[2] Mark 6:31–44;[3] Luke 9:12–17;[4] John 6:1–14[5]).

The second miracle, the "Feeding of the 4,000", with seven loaves of bread and a few small fish, is reported in Matthew 15:32–39[6] and Mark 8:1–9[7] but not by Luke or John.
