Matthew was a disciple of Jesus chosen while working as a tax collector.

He is no only a teacher, but a friend to his disciples and a compassionate and caring messiah to the people who follow him and are hungry for his word. Jesus is also powerful and Godly as seen when he feeds five thousand men with seven loaves and a few small fishes. The miraculous way he was able to multiply the loaves was meant to strengthen his disciples trust in him.
This passage teaches Christians to put their faith and trust in the word of God. People should trust in Jesus, pray, and fast without ceasing. The multitude was so drawn to him and his word that they went to the wilderness with him to listen to his teachings. This shows that Jesus is powerful in his words and as the son of God.
