The manna form in the Old Testament was implied to be a revelation of Jesus Christ. Its properties indicated the nature of Jesus: small (indicating humility), white (indicating purity), round (symbolic of eternity), and arriving at night (spiritual darkness). Manna, like salvation in Christ, could only be received—it could not be earned or made. Manna also provided the people with only two options: accept it and live or disrespect it by walking right over it. The same choice—and only those two options—face all people when it comes to Christ (John 3:16–18).
