Mark 8:1-21

It may seem repetitive that another feeding of many thousands miracle finds its way into the fast-paced gospel of Mark, but maybe it has more to do with trying to teach the disciples that He has the power to do miracles, not just once, but as many times as He desires? His point is only underscored by His response to the demands of the Pharisees for a “sign.” They’ve already seen so many signs, and yet they still haven’t believed. His signs are not meant to be “tricks” to be done on command, but rather as the outflow of His character: revealing God’s love, compassion, and healing and saving power.
