Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Numbers 11:5 (c) This vegetable is a type of that which the world offers to the Christian in the place of manna from Heaven. It may consist of pleasures, business, sports, education, music, religion or evil practices. The world seeks to feed on these things rather than on the Lord JESUS CHRIST, His Word, and His Work. He is the Bread of Life. Those who eat onions carry the effect with them, the odor is unmistakable. So those who participate in the things of the world and have no use for the heavenly manna can easily be distinguished by the effect in their lives.
