Prophet Jesus and three loaves of bread

SHARE

SHAFAQNA- A man accompanied Prophet Jesus (A.S) the son of Mary (Maryam) and said that he would go with him. They continued along until they came to a river. They sat and started to eat. They had three loaves of bread. They ate two of them and one remained.
Prophet Jesus (A.S) went to the river, drank some water and returned. Prophet Jesus (A.S) did not find the third loaf, so he asked the man who had taken that loaf. The man said that he did not know.
They continued until they came to a doe followed by two fawns. Prophet Jesus (A.S) beckoned one of the fawns, killed it, roasted it and they ate it. Then Prophet Jesus (A.S) addressed the fawn [that had been eaten,] saying, “Live!” It came to life and went. Then Prophet Jesus (A.S) said to the man, “By the God Who has shown you this miracle, who took that loaf of bread?” The man said that he did not know.
They continued until they reached a lake. Prophet Jesus (A.S) took the hand of the man and led him over the water. When they reached the other side, Prophet Jesus (A.S) said, “By the One Who has shown you this miracle, who took that loaf of bread?” The man said that he did not know.
They continued until they reached a desert. They sat down. Prophet Jesus (A.S) gathered some sand or dust and said, “By the permission of Allah (S.W.T), be Gold!” It became Gold. He divided it into three portions.
Then Prophet Jesus (A.S) said, “One third is for me, one third for you, and one third for whoever took that loaf of bread.”
The man said, “Alright, I took that loaf of bread.”
Prophet Jesus (A.S) said, “Then all of this Gold is yours.” Then he left him.
The man encountered two other men in the desert. They wanted to take his Gold and kill him. He said, “Let us divide the Gold into three portions.” They sent one of them to the village to buy food.
The one who went said to himself, “Why should I let them have portions of this wealth? I shall put some poison into the food, and kill them.” So, he poisoned the food.
The other two said, “Why should we give a third of this wealth to him. When he comes back, let us kill him, and divide the rest of the wealth between us.”
When he returned, they attacked him and killed him. Then they ate the poisoned food and died. The wealth remained in the desert with the three dead men beside it.
Prophet Jesus (A.S) passed them and saw the situation. He said to his disciples, “This is the world, so beware of it!”
