Jesus is in Gentile lands when He feeds the four thousand. It’s a deserted place south of the Sea of Galilee, barren because it’s summertime, and in that part of the world nothing grows in the summer.

Athanasius was on and off again pastor or bishop in Alexandria, Egypt, which was at the time the second largest…
