Ch 5 Vs 111-112 (Asking for The Table)

5:111
وَإِذْ أَوْحَيْتُ إِلَى الْحَوَارِيِّينَ أَنْ آمِنُوا بِي وَبِرَسُولِي قَالُوا آمَنَّا وَاشْهَدْ بِأَنَّنَا مُسْلِمُونَ
Allah in his FIRST person inspires the hawariyoon (followers of Isa) to believe in Me (Allah) and his messengers (showing the archetypal status of isa). Once this happens, they ask Allah to bear witness they are bringers of wholeness and soundness
5:112
إِذْ قَالَ الْحَوَارِيُّونَ يَا عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ هَلْ يَسْتَطِيعُ رَبُّكَ أَنْ يُنَـزِّلَ عَلَيْنَا مَائِدَةً مِنَ السَّمَاءِ قَالَ اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ
The hawariyoon ask *isa* son of maryam if he can descend from the skies (revelation perhaps) a space for them to develop their capacities (ma’idah from ayd, capacity). Isa tells them to be preservant against Allah (meaning to take measures of self-preservation) if they are truly believers.
