Mark 6:41 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Brake and gave (κατέκλασεν, ἐδίδου)

The verbs are in different tenses; the former in the aorist, the latter in the imperfect. The aorist implies the instantaneous, the imperfect the continuous act. He brake, and kept giving out. Farrar remarks that the multiplication evidently took place in Christ's hands, between the acts of breaking and distributing.

All

Peculiar to Mark.

Were filled

See on Matthew 5:6.
