Matthew, chapter 14

1 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard the news about Jesus, 2 and said to his servants, "This is John the Baptist; he has risen from the dead, and that is why miraculous powers are at work in him."
So raising from the dead and having miraculous powers really were nothing too really freak out about at the time.
19 Ordering the people to sit down on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed the food, and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds, 20 and they all ate and were satisfied. They picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve full baskets. 21 There were about five thousand men who ate, besides women and children.
The first recorded mass cloning experiment.
25 And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea.
So Jesus is having a walk on the water at between 3 and 6 a.m. in the morning? Seems more like a dream of somebody to me ...
35 And when the men of that place recognized Him, they sent word into all that surrounding district and brought to Him all who were sick; 36 and they implored
Him that they might just touch the fringe of His cloak; and as many as touched it were cured.
The magical cloak again!
