Fish used to feed the multitude

Do you ever wonder the kind of fish Jesus used to feed the multitude?


In the bible, it does not say the type of two fish used to feed the multitude, but it does say a command was given telling the people to sit down.   Once the crowd had obeyed, Jesus blessed, and braked and gave the loaves to his disciples.  Then, the disciples gave the loaves to the multitude and they all did

eat and were filled.  In the Sea of Galilee, it is the largest

freshwater lake in Israel.  One day I was in Publix grocery stores shopping in the seafood section, and I wanted some “Tilapia,” and the seafood clerk stated to me; Tilapia is the fish that Jesus used to feed the multitude.  Now, I do not know whether this is true, but it got me to thinking.  Tilapia, is a freshwater fish that inhabits ponds, streams, rivers and lakes, and are less commonly found living in brackish water or salt and fresh water mixed together.  My point is, Jesus used clean fish to provide the multitude with the best; however, it may have been another type of fish.  In conclusion, it is a miracle that occurred with feeding so many people, but it worked.  I found that this is very interesting to know that He did not let the people go home without providing them with His very best.
