Ch 5 Vs 113-115 (The Descent of The Table)

5:113
قَالُوا نُرِيدُ أَنْ نَأْكُلَ مِنْهَا وَتَطْمَئِنَّ قُلُوبُنَا وَنَعْلَمَ أَنْ قَدْ صَدَقْتَنَا وَنَكُونَ عَلَيْهَا مِنَ الشَّاهِدِينَ
They reply to *isa* that they wish to consume from the ma’idah and to satisfy their hearts and to know that *isa* was truthful (sidq) with them and to essentially be a witness.
5:114
قَالَ عِيسَى ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّنَا أَنْـزِلْ عَلَيْنَا مَائِدَةً مِنَ السَّمَاءِ تَكُونُ لَنَا عِيدًا لأَوَّلِنَا وَآخِرِنَا وَآيَةً مِنْكَ وَارْزُقْنَا وَأَنْتَ خَيْرُ الرَّازِقِينَ
*isa* responds by praying to Allah as ‘our lord’, to decend upon them the maidah from the sky so they may be essentially for ‘return’ (to their primordial state) for the foremost of them and those who follow and as a sign from Allah and to provide for them since Allah is the best of providers
5:115
قَالَ اللَّهُ إِنِّي مُنَـزِّلُهَا عَلَيْكُمْ فَمَنْ يَكْفُرْ بَعْدُ مِنْكُمْ فَإِنِّي أُعَذِّبُهُ عَذَابًا لا أُعَذِّبُهُ أَحَدًا مِنَ الْعَالَمِينَ
Allah thus exceeds to Isa’s request but if anyone rejects after this (since it is the biggest proof), he will be punished in an unprecedented way.
