God Provides Quail in the Desert

Exodus 16: God’s Bread of Eternal Life

God Provides Quail and Manna in the Wilderness of Sin

God Provides Quail and Manna in the Wildlerness of Sin

God Provides Quail and Manna in the Wildlerness of Sin

In today’s lesson, we see:

  • Israel murmurs because they lack food;
  • Manna and quail are provided by God;
  • Manna described and collected;
  • The Sabbath given to Israel.

We have been studying the experiences of the nation Israel. After they left the land of Egypt and crossed the Red Sea and came to Mount Sinai, there are seven recorded experiences which correspond to the Christian experience.

So far they have sung the song of Moses, gone three days without water, arrived at Marah where the water was bitter, and then journeyed to Elim where there were water and trees in abundance.

Elim is a picture of the fruitful Christian experience, and God promises to bring us to this place. Now we come to the Wilderness of Sin, the manna and the quail. And we find that Christ is not only our eternal source of Living Water, but also the Bread of Life.

Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. John 6:32-35
