Coriander

If you cook, you've probably heard of this spice. But did you know that Cilantro is the leaf of this same plant? Did you know that manna is described as being like coriander in Exodus 16:31 and Numbers 11:7? Coriander is an essential ingredient in curry. In Iran, it is used to aid in sleep and for anxiety. In Hebrew, Coriander is tansliterated, gad. The tribe of Gad and the prophet Gad, look the same in Hebrew and are transliterated, gawd. Both of these Gad's have Hebrew roots in words that mean troops gathering and attacking. I just thought this was interesting.
