Manna. I will rain bread from heaven (Exod 16:1-4).
What is manna?
The bread of heaven
Ps 105:40 "
They asked, and he proceeded to bring quails,
And with bread from heaven he kept satisfying them.
Food of Angels?
Ps 78:25 "...man ate bread of the angels..." (Septuagint)
What was it's texture?
"rained down" Ps 78:24
Therefore at least somewhat liquid.
"Fine and flakey, like frost" (Exod 16:14)
Therefore small, white and flakey.
"...like coriander seed... gathered and ground..."
So it's hard and seed like.
Let's review: So far it's white, liquid, and seed-like.
What's it taste like?
"honey wafers" (Exod 16:31)
"oil extract" (Num 11:8) (What kind of oil? Could be good or bad tasting).
So far we have one sure vote for good taste (honey) and one possible additional vote for good taste (oil).
But was it good to eat? Angel bread and honey wafer was on the menu and that sounds damn fine!
But look here: Numbers 21:5 "And the people kept speaking against God and Moses: "Why have
brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no bread and no water, and our soul has come to abhor the contemptible bread . "
And here: Numbers 11:5-6 "
How we remember the fish that we used to eat in Egypt for nothing, the cucumbers and the watermelons and the leeks and the onions and the garlic! But now our soul is dried away. Our eyes are on nothing at all except the manna."
Ah yes, those were the good old days...before all we had was this crappy manna.
Moses says they were fed it to be "humbled and tested". If it tasted like honey angel cakes would that be humbling and testing? "Contempitible bread" and only bread fed to you so you'd feel humbled and tested. I'd say that's three votes for bad taste, maybe four.
13 -14 Accordingly it occurred that in the evening the quails began to come up and cover the camp (lots of quails if they "covered the camp") , and in the morning there had developed a layer of dew round about the camp (that's the white, liquid, seed-like manna) . In time the layer of dew evaporated and here upon the surface of the wilderness there was a fine flaky thing, fine like hoarfrost upon the earth . (So the water evaporated leaving a white flakey stuff)" ...(and it tastes like crap, let's grind up the "seeds" and "make bread").
Therefore, manna is bird crap bread.
And here's the best part: 1Cor 10:2-3 "
and all got baptized into Moses by means of the cloud and of the sea; and all ate the same spiritual food (ie, 'manna')..."
So the Watchtower really does dispense true spiritual food....and it's as tastey as bird crap bread!
