Spiritual growth and feeding the 5000


Theologians and biblical scholars argue over three contrasting interpretations of this morning's gospel (Matthew 14:13-21). In preparing this sermon (preached on August 3, 2014), I considered framing those interpretations in different ways—perhaps as simple alternatives to one another, as appealing to people with various spiritual orientations, and so forth—until finally realizing that the interpretations actually represent three stages of spiritual growth or development.
