In the center, Jesus multiplies bread for the crowd after a long day of preaching in the Feeding of the Four/Five Thousand (Matthew 14; Matthew 15; Mark 6; Mark 8; Luke 9; John 6). On the right, the disciples urge Jesus to wake up and still the storm as their boat is overcome by the waves (Matthew 8; Mark 4; Luke 8). On the register below to the left, Jesus instructs Simon to cast his nets for a miraculous catch as he preaches on his boat (Luke 5). On the right, Jesus sits at the head of the table with his disciples at the Passover Seder (Matthew 26; Mark 14; Luke 22).
