    that destroyed the bread loaves, fishes and wine industries.

    that's the real reason He told his disciples He'd make them 'fishers of men'.  after leaving baskets of Tilapia all over the place for free an honest fisherman couldn't make a decent living. so, really, much of the apostle thing was a divinely inspired jobs program. (in modern times, large corporate entites such as Wal-Mart have copied aspects of Jesus' business model since the apostles usually had to rely on the larger community for food and shelter, technically, the whole apostle program externalized its biggest costs)
