        Wanna manna?

        God rained down manna (bread from heaven) on Moses and the hungry Israelites on their journey out of Egypt. 

        Described as white “like coriander seed” and tasting “like wafers made with honey,” manna was both physical and spiritual nourishment and a sign that God was watching over the Jews.

        In this image, the Israelites around Moses bend down to hurriedly collect manna, which the Bible says melted in the sunlight.
