The manna and the quail were natural to the Sinai.

Monday, 8/7/17

There may have been ordinary explanations for the food  the Israelites ate in the desert. Even today, desert Arabs gather what they call manna. It is the resin from Tamarisk bushes that falls at night, and must be gathered up before the heat melts it into the sand.

As well, there were times when the people were visited by flights of quail that tumbled to earth, exhausted from their long flights across the Mediterranean.
