Manna - it's place in your life as a Jew.

The Manna of the Bible

Numbers 11:7"And the manna is as coriander seed, and its aspect as the aspect of bdellium; pearlescent and resinous in color.

Numbers 11:8 “the people have turned aside and gathered [it], and ground [it] with millstones, or beat [it] in a mortar, and boiled [it] in a pan, and made it cakes, and its taste hath been as the taste of the moisture of oil.

Numbers 11:9 “And in the descending of the dew on the camp by night, the manna descendeth upon it.

Exodus 16:14 "...and the lying of the dew goeth up, and lo, on the face of the wilderness a thin, bare thing, thin as hoar-frost on the earth."

Exodus 16: 32 - "Moses said, "This is what the Lord has commanded: Take an omer of Manna and keep it for the generations to come, they can see the bread I gave you to eat in the desert when I brought you out of Egypt."

Hebrews 9:2 - "For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the bread of the presence; which is called the sanctuary."
