Jesus' Frustration

We can hear Jesus' frustration with his disciples in this morning's gospel. After chiding them to beware of the bad leaven of the Scribes and Pharisees, they mistakenly believe he has scolded them for taking too little to eat with them in the boat.

Jesus is worried about their contamination by duplicity and they think he is worried about lunch. 

At this point he has already multiplied the loaves hinting about the life sustaining food he will give us in the Eucharist at the Last Supper. We shouldn't be quick to scoff at them, Jesus can ask the same question of us:

BreadDo you get it?
