At the Sixteenth of Exodus, God provided food for the Israelites in the wilderness by causing quail to come upon their camp in the evening and by causing manna to appear with the dew in the morning. Though the food was physical, it was Divinely given and had profound spiritual significance. Paul told the Corinthian Church that this was spiritual meat. Interestingly, the Savior referred to Himself at the Sixth of John as “Bread of Life.” Though the ancients were sustained physically by manna in the wilderness and later died, Christ promised spiritual eternal life to partakers of the spiritual Bread of Life. Labor not, the Savior said, for the meat that perishes, but for that which endures unto everlasting life.
