By some that John was risen from the dead: but by other some, that Elias had appeared: and by others, that one of the old prophets was risen again.
And Herod said: John I have beheaded. But who is this of whom I hear such things? And he sought to see him.
And the apostles, when they were returned, told him all they had done. And taking them, he went aside into a desert place, apart, which belongeth to Bethsaida.

Now there were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples: Make them sit down by fifties in a company.
And they did so and made them all sit down.
