But he said to them, "Give them something to eat, yourselves!" They said, "We have no more than five loaves of bread and two fish -- unless we ourselves are supposed to go and buy food for all these people!"
(For there were about five thousand men.) He said to his talmidim, "Make them sit down in groups of about fifty each."
They did what he told them and had them all sit down.
Then he took the five loaves and the two fish and, looking up toward heaven, made a b'rakhah, broke the loaves and began giving them to the talmidim to distribute to the crowd.
Everyone ate as much as he wanted; and they took up what was left over, twelve baskets full of broken pieces.
Once when Yeshua was praying in private, his talmidim were with him; and he asked them, "Who are the crowds saying I am?"
They answered, "Yochanan the Immerser; but others say Eliyahu, and others that some prophet of long ago has risen."
"But you," he said to them, "who do you say I am?" Kefa answered, "The Mashiach of God!"
However, he, warning them, ordered them to tell this to no one,
adding, "The Son of Man has to endure much suffering and be rejected by the elders, the head cohanim and the Torah-teachers; and he has to be put to death; but on the third day, he has to be raised to life."
Then to everyone he said, "If anyone wants to come after me, let him say `No' to himself, take up his execution-stake daily and keep following me.
