If its was the hesitant prize fighter back in his old world. Yet, now he is gathering up his last troops and making a last stand. Hopefully God will be merciful and turn the tide to his favour once again.
Ironically, Corrinne Mays song, really captured every feeling i have about my situation.
The Lad's Loaves in the Lord's Hands
I decided to reread the story of the boy and the five loaves and two fishes. Interestingly, the four gospels all had an entry of it. Only John talks about the Lad. He went by a boat, near the sea of Tiberius. The passover is near… But the crowds needed Jesus so much, they took pains to find out where he is, and came to Jesus… Jesus, having compassion to them, started to teach and heal them.
At this time, the little child must have passed by.Five Loaves Of Bread, Two Fish and The Gospel
That was the Waving of the Sheaf of barley Lev. That is, it represented the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. That offering was made annually on the Sunday morning after Passover. That almost always coincides with the date of the Christian Easter. What happened after the law of Moses was fulfilled is that the "Waving of the Sheaf" offering was promoted to be a major holy day, celebrating the Resurrection, when Christ overcame death for all mankind.
It is what is generally called "Easter Sunday. It would make perfect sense for Christ to come at Easter to introduce and teach Christianity. Moreover, He still would be coming at Passover, but on the Sunday during Passover week, rather than on the initial feast day.

Everything in the above quoted footnote would hold true had it suggested the Passover symbolism could be fulfilled by Christ coming during "Passover week" rather than restricting it to the "Passover day.
The Sunday after Passover that year would have been 26 Mar 34 all dates given are on our modern Gregorian Calendarthe sixth day of the seven days of Passover. That day was holy on several sacred calendars. But just being Easter Sunday would be enough to initially recommend that day as a perfect day to teach Christianity.
Now let us turn to what is known about the Nephite Calendar, which provides strong corroboration for this proposal. Very little detail is presented in the Book of Mormon about the calendar used by the Nephites, the principal authors of that sacred account.

They were known to come from Jerusalem about BC, and one might expect them to have used the Hebrew lunisolar calendar because they kept the ordinances of the law of Moses Alma A careful reading shows that they most likely used a separate civil calendar, even though keeping the Hebrew Calendar for ordinances, just as modern Hebrews do. Evidence for a separate civil calendar is that they record that the sign given of the crucifixion of Christ occurred on the 4th day of the Nephite month 3 Nephi 8: Therefore, the Nephite calendar being used was not the Hebrew Calendar.
A detailed model of the Nephite Calendar was proposed inbased on the Egyptian civil calendar which was in use at the time the Nephite group left Jerusalem.
The illustration from that article is shown in Figure 1. In that article it was shown that the length of the life of Jesus Christ exactly matches to the very day that indicated by other sacred calendars. We are told that the Nephites reset their calendar to begin a new era at the time the sign of the birth of Christ had been given 3 Nephi 2: If the first day of the first month of the first year corresponds to 6 Apr 1 BC, the day after the night on which the sign of His birth was given, then His death on Fri 1 Apr AD 33 would have fallen on the fourth day of the first month of the 34th exactly as recorded in the Book of Mormon 3 Nephi 8: In that article precise dates for certain events are proposed based on that calendar.
The speech of King Benjamin and the appearance of the angel to Amulek are examples. But no date was proposed for the appearance of Christ to the Nephites, the most important event in the entire book, because it was not clear what that date was. After a decade, that proposed Nephite Calendar still appears to be correct and to have still been in use when Jesus Christ made his appearance to the Nephites during that 34th year.
Dates can be calculated on that calendar, divided in to eras of Lehi, Judges, and Christ, on my Calendar Spreadsheet page by selecting "Nephite" in any of the column headers. What led to the writing of this article was the realization that the author Mormon was being very precise when he said that Christ came "in the ending" of the 34th year.
Earlier he had given the exact day of the destruction at the time of the Crucifixion. It makes sense that he would also be precise about the timing of the long-awaited coming of Jesus Christ to visit them. Look again at the model of the Nephite Calendar in Figure 1. Note that the 5 days at the end of the year are called "End".
If you were using that calendar, and if the Savior's appearance was during that 5-day period, how would you describe it? Mormon wrote that it happened "in the ending" of that year 3 Nephi If it were in the twelfth month, then the author probably would have said that, even as he said the sign of the Crucifixion was in the first month on the fourth day.
He did not use the vague terminology that the destruction was "in the beginning" of the year. The first day was "End Transplanting" UJ. The seems very significant because the Nephites began their journey of being transplanted to the Americas on the day "Begin Transplanting" UJ. See my Religious Chronology page under "Lehi Departs" for other details about that date and other dates, such as Noah's Ark resting on the day "End Transplanting".
The second day was Easter Sunday as has been discussed in detail. The third day was the Last Day of Passover on the Hebrew Calendar, still a holy day even though the rites of the law of Moses were no longer celebrated.
On the proposed Nephite Calendar those three days were 2 End, 3 End, and 4 End, fitting exactly into the five-day "ending" period most likely being referred to by Mormon. While that may not seem like "soon after the ascension of Christ" to us, it apparently did to Mormon, who was writing this account nearly four centuries after the visit of Jesus Christ occurred. Now let us consider the timing of the events at the Sea of Galilee two years earlier. The word "nigh" means "near", but when used with time it is usually thought of as meaning "near in the future.
Let us consider the possibility that all John meant to say was that when he wrote his book many decades after the event, he could recall that the miracle took place sometime "near" Passover. The first day of Passover, which is usually referred to simply as "Passover," was on a Tuesday which was not a holy day on any other calendar during the daytime.
But the last three days of that Passover week are an entirely different story. The fifth day of Passover week was on Sat 17 Apr The afternoon was holy on six sacred calendars, and some of them matched the proposed days for the Nephite event.
First, the weekly Priest cycle began every Saturday at noon, so it was holy on the Priest Calendar as was the day proposed for the Nephite appearance of Christ. Secondly, it was "End Transplanting" UJ. The corresponding day for the Nephite appearance was "End Transplanting" J.
Those who had eaten the loaves numbered five thousand men. Immediately he made his disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. And taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd.
And all ate and were filled. What was left over was gathered up, twelve baskets of broken pieces. A large crowd kept following him, because they saw the signs that he was doing for the sick. Jesus went up the mountain and sat down there with his disciples. Now the Passover, the festival of the Jews, was near.
But what are they among so many people? Then Jesus took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated; so also the fish, as much as they wanted.
