The narrative that sets forth Aaron and his rod (see Num. 17) includes symbols that teach us of Jesus Christ and his Atonement. These include (a) the rod and its power; (b) the almonds; (c) the miraculous rod that budded, blossomed, and yielded almonds all at once; and (d) the rod was placed in the ark of the covenant.
