beside this manna
11:6 beside this manna. The account of God’s daily miraculous provision of “manna” (meaning “What is it?” in Hebrew) is in Exodus 16:1-36. Christ described this as a type of His own descent from heaven to bring life to the world (see John 6:38,49-51). As the Israelites came to despise the manna, so their descendants later came to despise Christ (Isaiah 53:3).
