Secrets of Manna

We know that Templar Knight headquarters was located at the palace on the Temple Mound in Jerusalem, from there what would the crusaders have found in the Holy Land but historical records and religious texts?!

The Temple of Solomon was solidly documented as being a Pharaonic Egyptian Temple [1] [2]. Archaeology has proven that such Temples never held stores of riches, but did feature vast collections of scrolls as libraries, preserved by dedicated scribes. Therefore, it makes sense that the “treasure” of the Temple of Solomon would be none other than the Library of the Temple of Solomon, consisting of ancient sacred scrolls of Holy scriptures.

Residing on the very place where Solomon is said to have built his temple, the Templars no doubt would have wanted to know the origins of their faith and what exactly went on at the temple during those times.

It is likely that the crusaders have discovered a different Gospel than the one they expacted...

Looking throught old temple records, ancient texts, and gnostic scriptures the Templar knights would have came across priestly texts and kabbalistic manuscripts pertaining to priestly rituals and procedings at the Temple. A simple inquery on the history of the Communion, the Eucharist, or the Unleavened Bread would have led the crusaders on a very interesting search through the records kept at the Temple Mound.

Now if I was a crusader looking through records regarding treasures that could have been kept at the temple, I would have no doubt found out about the Ark of the Covenant, the Ten Comandments, Aarons Rod 
                                ...and finaly a Pot of Manna!

"And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground.
And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the Lord hath given you to eat."

...but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and stank...

...and when the sun waxed hot, it melted...."
-Exodus 16:14-15 and 20-21

The word mana appears three times in the Qurʾān, in Quran 2:57, 7:160 and 20:80.[3] It is narrated in the hadith Sahih Muslim that the Prophet Mohammad said "Truffles are part of the 'manna' which Allah sent to the people of Israel through Moses, and its juice is a medicine for the eye."

"Then ye shall know that the Lord hath brought you out from the land of Egypt:

And in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the Lord; for that he heareth your murmurings against the Lord: and what are we, that ye murmur against us?"
-Exodus 16:6-7

Here "glory" is a technical / theological term that describes the visible form of God in dreams and prophetic visions, stating that after the Isrelites will eat Manna, they will see Gods glory.

"And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers:"
-Isaiah 30:20

In Exodus 16:32 Moses said that God told him to keep an omer of Manna on display for all, yet in the following few verses (Exodus 16:33-34) Moses instructs Aaron to put it only where the high priests could go.

"And Moses said, This is the thing which the Lord commandeth, Fill an omer of it to be kept for your generations; that they may see the bread wherewith I have fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt."

"And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a pot, and put an omer full of manna therein, and lay it up before the Lord, to be kept for your generations.
As the Lord commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept."

Did Moses deliberetly hide Manna from the people against God's instructions? 

Looking throught historical documents, which might have themselves passed throught the hands of the Templar and Hospitaller Knights, I came upon a tenth century BCE., document which advocated public knowledge and use of Manna.  However in the late eight century as part of Hezekiahs reformation, Manna was restricted and was used only by the priesthoods.

According to Joshua 5:11-12 after the first Passover in Cannan Unleavened Bread was substituted for the Manna.

"And the day after the Passover, on that very day, they ate of the produce of the land, unleavened cakes and parched grain. 
And the manna ceased the day after they ate of the produce of the land. And there was no longer manna for the people of Israel, but they ate of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year."


"Jesus said: The Pharisees and the scribes have taken the keys of knowledge (and) have hidden them. They did not go in, and those who wished to go in they did not allow."
-Gospel of Thomas
