Read Matthew 14:13-21, which you can do here. Answer the following questions:
Jesus was withdrawing ‘privately to a solitary place’ because he had been informed that his cousin and staunch supporter, John the Baptist, has been executed. But when his boat landed, he saw that a huge crowd of people was waiting for him. How would you have felt, in a moment of personal grief, if this happened to you?
How does Matthew tell us that Jesus felt about these people?
