The first morning that God gave the children of Israel bread, they did not know what it was.  

It was something they had never seen before.  

It was like a coriander seed, which is 3/16 of an inch in diameter (3-5 mm).  

It was the color of white as the color of bdelium.  

Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary defines bdellium as "a gum or resin, a precious stone, or a pearl".  

Therefore it was round (3/16 of an inch in diameter) like a pearl, sticky and white.  When they saw it, they said "What is it?".  

They called the bread, manna.  The Hebrew word, manna, means "What is it?".  

(Exodus 16:14 And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground.)

1. The bread that God rained down from heaven was a small  thing.

to question 6.

Note: I took the following picture, which I staged with white beads (3/16 of an inch in diameter) upon the dew in grass. This picture gives you an idea of what manna would look like.

When the manna would fall it would be very deep as in this picture. [ Lesson 1 ]      [ Manna Page ]      [ Lesson 3 ]     [ Home Page ]
