The Bread of Life and Manna
John 6:47-58
Truly, truly, I say to you, He that believes on me has everlasting life.…

The Palestine Exploration Society, when they came to Tel Hum (Capernaum), found what they believed to be the synagogue in which Jesus delivered His discourse. In turning over the stones, it was with peculiarly sacred feelings that they found a large block with a pot of manna engraved on its face. Every synagogue had its symbol — one a lamb, another a candlestick, and this, the pot of manna. We .can see Jesus in His synagogue pointing with His finger to this device over the main entrance, and saying, " Our fathers did eat manna," etc.

(W. Baxendale.)
