Where will they get food? (Mt 15:33-15:33)

“The disciples said

To Jesus.

‘Where are we to get

Enough bread

In the desert

To feed

So great a crowd?’”

 

καὶ λέγουσιν αὐτῷ οἱ μαθηταί Πόθεν ἡμῖν ἐν ἐρημίᾳ ἄρτοι τοσοῦτοι ὥστε χορτάσαι ὄχλον τοσοῦτον;

 

Mark, chapter 8:4, has a similar statement about the disciples questioning Jesus.  The disciples of Jesus asked him (καὶ λέγουσιν αὐτῷ οἱ μαθηταί) where they would get enough loaves of bread (Πόθεν ἡμῖν ἄρτοι τοσοῦτοι) to feed or satisfy such a great crowd (ὥστε χορτάσαι ὄχλον τοσοῦτον) in the desert (ἐν ἐρημίᾳ).  In the earlier feeding of the 5,000, the place was deserted, while here it is a desert or uninhabited place also.
