S. S. Times
When they were filled, he said to his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.…
The word for "basket" in all the places where this miracle is mentioned (Matthew 14; Mark 6:1.; Luke 9.; John 6), kophinos; in the two places where the later miracle of feeding is described, the word for basket is spuris. These two words indicate two different kinds of baskets. It was in a spuris basket that Paul was let down from the walls of Damascus; so that we can hardly err in recognizing in the spuris the large, deep, and round woven basket which is used for so many purposes in Palestine, and into which a man could, on occasion, be packed. The kophinos, on the other hand, which in the classics sometimes indicates a fish-basket, seems to be the light, flat woven tray-basket, which is in use among fisher-folk and others who had light burdens to carry.
