Abstract

This article seeks to understand the role of the feeding of the five thousand miracle in Luke's narrative. Commencing with an evaluation of the allusion claims, it is determined that the character representation in 2 Kings 4:42-44 has more parallels than the feeding narrative in Exodus 16 or Numbers 11. Following this, the article evaluates Luke's narrative framing of the feeding discourse in comparison to the other synoptics and determines that Luke intentionally framed this miracle to address the Christological question of Jesus' identity.
