Everyone had enough (Mk 6:42-6:42)

“All ate.

All were filled.”

 

καὶ ἔφαγον πάντες καὶ ἐχορτάσθησαν·

 

This is the only miracle that is recorded in all four gospels, Matthew, chapter 14:20, Luke, chapter 9:17, and John, chapter 6:12, plus here.  Certainly, it was a miraculous feeding.  All the synoptic gospels have the same wording as Mark so that he may be the source.  Mark said that everyone ate some food (καὶ ἔφαγον πάντες).  They were all satisfied or filled (καὶ ἐχορτάσθησαν).  There was no mention of anything to drink.
