Doug's note: I will be re-teaching this one! God's provision can be a hard topic to teach to teenagers.
The Israelites needed manna from heaven -- they were dependent on God for the literal bread to live on. This lesson parallels their experience of dependence on God in the desert physically with students' need for Jesus as their "Bread of Life" spiritually. This one-off message could easily stand alone. It could also be used in a series about Moses, the Israelites wandering in the desert, or the Book of Exodus in general.
