Mark 8: (KJV)
4 “And his disciples answered him, From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread here in the wilderness?”

 “From whence can a man satisfy these men with bread”? Hey Mark, how about going back two chapters earlier:

Mark 6: (KJV)

41 And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all. 42 And they did all eat, and were filled.”

Hmmm, how many were fed with bread?

Mark 6: (KJV)

“And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.”

That the disciples would have forgotten the previous feeding miracle reported by the same author is not believable.

A few desperate apologists claim that “Mark” was illustrating the general lack of belief and faith on the part of the disciples, but “Mark’s” narrative here demonstrates a lack of knowledge (regarding the previous feeding miracle) on the part of the disciples and not a lack of faith.


Mark 8: (KJV)
9 “And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away.”

Compare to Matthew 16: (KJV)

 38 “And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and  children.”

Apparently, bread and fish are not the only things that multiply in the Christian Bible.
