Mosaic of the Loaves and Fishes

The church on this site is an exact replica of the fourth century basilica built to commemorate the miracle of the feeding of the five thousand. The mosaic floor features one of the most famous motifs in the country - the basket of bread flanked by two fish, as well as a design of wildlife next to the Nile and its water level. The church is built around a black rock underneath the Altar, reverenced as the rock upon which Jesus blessed and broke the bread.



From the Scriptures

Matthew Chapter 14

15 When it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a lonely place, and the day is now over; send the crowds away to go into the villages and buy food for themselves.” 16 Jesus said, “They need not go away; you give them something to eat.” 17 They said to him, “We have only five loaves here and two fish.” 18 And he said, “Bring them here to me.” 19 Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass; and taking the five loaves and the two fish he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. 20 And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up twelve baskets full of the broken pieces left over. 21 And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
