Christian Trivia Question #28 - Miraculous Food

There are many references to food in Scripture.  Laws about how to prepare it and what not to eat. Prophesies about abundant crops and famines. Food to be prepared specifically for sacrifice.

But not only regular food.  On many occasions, God turned some very common food into miraculous food.  The obvious example is the "Multiplication of the Loaves" or the "Feeding of the 5,000" where Jesus fed the multitude miraculously with 5 loaves and 2 fishes.

Name at least 5 other occasions that God used food in a miraculous way.


  1. Manna from heaven Ex. 16
    An over abundance of fish John 21
    Jesus turning water into wine during Wedding at Cana John 2 (it’s a drink, I know haha)

    That’s all I can come up with on my own

  2. Excellent Kelsey. Three off the top of your head is pretty good. The abundance of fish when Jesus told Peter to throw the nets on the other side of the boat after they had caught nothing all night is certainly a miracle, but technically the food itself (fish in this case) was not miraculous as in the case of the water changing into wine and the manna that appeared each morning to feed the Hebrews in the desert.

    But we're going to count it. There's many more, so keep the guesses coming.

  3. What about Jesus turning water into wine, the time that Elisha multiplied oil for a widow so she can pay off her debt, when God allowed the last bit of flour and oil not to dry up but feed Elijah and the woman and her son for many days, manna in the desert, and Jesus actually turning bread and wine into his body, blood, soul and divinity!
