The crowd here is eerily quiet as Jesus of Nazareth appears to be concluding his talk on treatment of the poor. This issue is very dear to him and seems like it will be the main focus of his campaign.
It’s so quiet here you can hear people’s stomachs grumbling instead of their mouths, an unusual occurrence in a crowd of this size.
It appears that the event is over, but instead of breaking up, the crowd is still here. There has been sporadic talking, and the words “food” and “market” have been heard more than once. Jesus’ campaign workers have brought some food with them, but can they feed this many people? When the food runs out, this may turn ugly. Stay tuned while we move our boat to a better location, just a little further from shore.
