Hidden Mysteries of the Bible (103:0)

Jesus' teachings are Hidden Manna: He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it. (rev 2:17) [Manna representing the Spiritual Food. Only those with Spiritual Insight would be able to understand what He was saying (js)] (103:1) see

Spiritual things/Spiritual Words: Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. (1co 2:13-14) [And Paul wants his words to spiritually discerned. Spiritual words are foolishness to unspiritual people. Literal-minded people cannot correctly understand spiritual truths expressed in spiritual words (js)] (103:2) see
