Mark 6:30-44 where Jesus feeds the 5,000 is more than just a miracle to wow the crowds. It is instead a picture of how Jesus is a very personal good shepherd, who has compassion and aims to provide good things. As Jesus and the disciples seek to find a quiet spot to rest and regroup, the crowd followed Jesus and the disciples into a desolate place. It is there in that desolate place that Mark paints a picture of Jesus with a flock of sheep in need of a shepherd. These sheep (the crowd) had wandered into a desolate place with no provision for food, but Jesus being the good shepherd that He is provided for them.
