Despised and Rejected of Men

Old Testament

A Sermon on Numbers 11:4-6

Now the rabble that was among them had a strong craving. And the people of Israel also wept again and said, “Oh that we had meat to eat! We remember the fish we ate in Egypt that cost nothing, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic. But now our strength is dried up, and there is nothing at all but this manna to look at.” (ESV)

The lie man believes about himself; sin makes man treat God's provision with contempt; modern ways of expressing contempt revealed; the reception of Christianity in this world; the miracle of the divine man rejected.
