When I was in Homiletics (preaching) class in seminary - we were assigned the Bible passage where Jesus feeds the 5000 (John 6). One man went to the bakery and bought a loaf of bread - he cut it into as many tiny pieces as possible and then figured how many loaves it would take for everyone to get even a bite. Now the text says they were satisfied. So the man's conclusion was - it could not have happened and therefore Jesus did not do it. We loved it, took him out for lunch, and laughed all afternoon. We ate and were filled with joy.
