Nothing in existence can ever separate us from the love that God, revealed in Jesus, has for us.

The shortage was forgotten; many loaves came from few as in the flrst blessing: “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.”

Jesus healed them and fed them. But there are other dimensions to the account as well.
Reginald H. Fuller
Paul is interpreting the death of Jesus as a victory over the demonic powers who can do no ultimate damage to believers.
