Why the manna stopped 

Old Testament: Jos 5.10–12

To read the Bible in a year, read Joshua 4–6 on March 21, In the year of our Lord Christ 2023

By Don Ruhl 

For forty years the Lord dropped bread out of heaven for His people because they were in a situation where food was not readily available for feeding a minimum of 3.5 million people daily. However, when they entered the Land of Canaan, things changed: 

Now the children of Israel camped in Gilgal, and kept the Passover on the fourteenth day of the month at twilight on the plains of Jericho. And they ate of the produce of the land on the day after the Passover, unleavened bread and parched grain, on the very same day. Then the manna ceased on the day after they had eaten the produce of the land; and the children of Israel no longer had manna, but they ate the food of the land of Canaan that year.

– Joshua 5.10–12 

The Lord provided food from heaven, then He provided food from the earth; either way He provided for His people.
