“Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.”
King James Version (KJV)
6:31 Our fathers ate manna - This sign Moses gave them. He gave them bread from heaven - From the lower sublunary heaven; to which Jesus opposes the highest heaven: in which sense he says seven times, #John 6:32|,33,38,50,58,62, that he himself came down from heaven.
Joh 6:31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert. He may have fed a few thousands on the day before, but what was that to feeding of the whole host of Israel for forty years in the wilderness? Is he as great a leader as Moses, in whose time the manna fell?
