Manna

A fine, flake-like food substance with the taste of honey wafers (Ex. 16:14–31) or of fresh oil (Num. 11:8). The Lord provided it to feed the children of Israel during their forty years in the wilderness (Ex. 16:4–5, 14–30, 35; Josh. 5:12; 1 Ne. 17:28).

The children of Israel called it manna (or man-hu in Hebrew)—which meant “What is it?”—because they did not know what it was (Ex. 16:15). It was also called “angels’ food” and “bread from heaven” (Ps. 78:24–25; John 6:31). It was a symbol for Christ, who would be the Bread of Life (John 6:31–35).
