For they were about five thousand men. He said to his disciples, "Make them sit down in groups of about fifty each."
They did so, and made them all sit down.
He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to the sky, he blessed them, and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the multitude.

He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter answered, "The Christ of God."
