What did JESUS eat ?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

What do we know about the food that was available during the time of Jesus in the land he lived ?

Every smoker quits smoking sooner or later!

Only the smart ones are doing it while they are still alive.

What I really want to know is if Jesus drank Napa wine.  :)

Presumably, much the same foods as are considered part of the Mediterranean diet today, apart from potatoes, tomatoes and other, later introductions!

Oh, and no pork...

A few books to look at:

One interesting thing I read somewhere was about turning water into wine.  Jesus was a working class guy, and most likely at a social gathering would consume beer, not wine.  As an avid beer lover and former home brewer, I think the story about wine got misinterpreted.

I often wonder if Jesus ever "went out" for Roman food.  Most people like a bit of ethnic food every once in a while... just for a change.  I also wonder if he ate Chinese food on Christmas.  :)

“He [Jesus] said to them: Do you have any food? And they gave Him a piece of BROILED FISH and some HONEY. And HE TOOK IT AND ATE IT in front of them.”  Other than that it would be speculation.

While beer certainly has a longer history in that region than wine, Jesus grew up in a time of Roman occupation, and Romans, generally, preferred wine over beer, so chances are there was more wine production going on than beer production.  Although I do like the idea of it being a mistranslation.

I don't think Jesus ever ate anything, which is why he was so damn skinny. He starved himself for us.

My recollection is that he also broke bread with tax collectors, and the Pharisee sorts were none too happy about it.

@ PadKeyJoe.  I'm not a bible scholar by any means, but I think when they say they broke bread, it was their way of saying they shared a meal together. Breaking bread is used a lot in the bible.  But I could be wrong.

We still use break fast for the first meal of the day wink.gif

@Ishbel, Yes, I've heard say because when we sleep we are fasting and when we eat our first meal we breakfast like you say..... :crazy:

In my area of Scotland we still pronounce it as brakefast, rather than the more commonly heard (at least in some other areas of the UK) brekkfast.

We just call it brekkie, though it's gotten pretty popular and distinctively high end in certain circles.

Interesting comments..got a lot of information..but i also think all these Gods were not basically Gods but creators who cam from another planet and found earth to be habitable just as what our future of technology is " planetary explorations"

If He perfectly kept the Law in all points, wouldn't he have eaten Passover lamb at least once a year, as well as any other required feast-day "roast beast"?
