A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

.The most important sign
.Jesus is the true Bread from heaven
.How does the temptation of Jesus by satan fit all the verses for this day?
.God has established a testimony- his Son is risen indeed
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

This Sunday I spoke on the verses from the Catholic mass.
I’ll copy all the verses below in the ‘verses’ section.
The passage from exodus is the famous ‘Manna’ from heaven account.
Right after God delivered the people from Egypt- with a great wonder- the parting of the Red Sea- they immediately began to doubt his provisions for them- in the wilderness-
Exodus 16:2 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness:
Exodus 16:3 And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.
Exodus 16:4 Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.
Though the bible teaches us to not seek signs- or miracles- yet when God’s people seek him- and he intervenes in a miraculous way- these are events that were to be remembered for generations.
When the people grumbled about provisions- food- natural bread- it was a reaction of them not remembering what God just did- the parting of the Red sea.
We see the same in the passage from John’s gospel- last week I covered the first part of John 6- where Jesus multiplied the bread and fish.
The passage for this week began with the people who saw that great miracle- following Jesus- not because they saw [remembered] the miracle- but because they were filled with natural food. [Some sites see here https://corpuschristioutreachministries.blogspot.com/2021/08/sunday-sermon-text.html ]
Jesus himself rebukes them for following him for the natural provisions- and not because of the miracle-
