 A Challenging Ten Question Quiz about Jesus Feeding the 5000

Other than the story of the cross, The Feeding of the 5000 is the only story found in ALL FOUR GOSPELS. But there are some very interesting differences in how each Gospel writer tells the story (which you'll soon discover as you take the quiz). Our Writing Team has been working on lessons for this story using John's version and it has been a terrific reminder of the interesting differences between the Gospel versions --and how our memories tend to mash them together.

Click the Quiz Checkmark graphic below to see how well you think you know this story, then BE SURE TO CLICK "REVIEW ALL ANSWERS" at the end of the quiz for some very interesting insights and comments about these differences.

About the Rotation Model and Organization of Lessons at Our Site

Our content is primarily organized to support those using the Workshop Rotation Model for Sunday School. However, our content is easily adaptable by traditional Sunday Schools, and many of our registered and supporting members do just that.

Learn more about the Model
The Rotation Model is based on two principles:
(1) Creative teaching methods and rooms ("workshops") help students learn better and want to return more often.

(2) We need to teach stories for more than one week. Having a new Bible story every week creates biblically illiterate kids and burns-out teachers who want to be creative.

By rotating kids and not teachers through "workshops," kids get variety and depth in a single story, while teachers get to prepare once and improve every week.

Here's a typical four week rotation schedule for 3 different grade groups.

Prodigal Son
Teacher: Jane
Teacher: Amy
Teacher: Bill
Teacher: Jo
Week 1 Grades K-1 Grades 2-4 Grades 5-6 Open
Week 2 Open Grades K-1 Grades 2-4 Grades 5-6
Week 3 Grades 5-6 Open Grades K-1 Grades 2-4
Week 4 Grades 2-4 Grades 5-6 Open Grades K-1

Rotation schedules are super-flexible and scalable to any church size. Add a fifth week and workshop to create a five week rotation. Add another grade by filling in the "Open" slots. See more schedule examples.
