Just the facts

MANNA (B)

manna

Leftovers of manna stored up for the following day bred worms and stank.

They were however allowed to gather enough for two days (2 omers per person) on the day before Sabbath, because they were not allowed to do any work on the Sabbath day.

Beyond being God’s answer to the Israelites cries for food, we also see that the giving of Manna to them was significant in many ways: Manna was also used illustratively in the Bible in reference to Christ who is called the True Bread from Heaven, the Bread of God, and the Bread of Life (John 6:32-35). Jesus is therefore our Manna in the New Testament.
