What is a Paradigm Shift? A change in approach or underlying understanding
Luke 9:10-17 When the apostles returned, they reported to Jesus what they had done. Then he took them with him and they withdrew by themselves to a town called Bethsaida, but the crowds learned about it and followed
Luke 9:10-17 him. He welcomed them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing. Late in the afternoon the Twelve came to him and said, ‘Send the crowd away so they can go to
Luke 9:10-17 the surrounding villages and countryside and find food and lodging, because we are in a remote place here.’He replied, ‘You give them something to eat.’ They answered, ‘We have only five loaves of bread and two
Luke 9:10-17 fish – unless we go and buy food for all this crowd.’ (About five thousand men were there.) But he said to his disciples, ‘Make them sit down in groups of about fifty each.’ The disciples did so, and everyone sat down.
Luke 9:10-17 Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to distribute to the people. They all ate and were satisfied, and the
Luke 9:10-17 disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
