It had been a long day. Jesus had fed thousands of people using just five loaves of bread and two small fish. Everyone felt very excited. If He could do this, what else could He do? With all His powers, He could feed the poor. He could lead an army to war, and when they got wounded, He could heal them. Or if they died in battle, He could even raise them to life. He was the perfect Messiah, and definitely the One they wanted to sit on the throne of Israel.
