      jesus did however say this at the last supper..
      matt 26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.

      To say that He would not drink henceforth shows that He drank before, does it not? Paul advised Timothy to drink wine for his stomach. We are just not to become drunk, drinkers of much wine, so as to quench the Holy Spirit

      No it doesnt It only shows that he will drink it NEW
      NO verse in the Bible where it says He drunk (except when they falsely accused him of drinking )

      Troy Day wine was a common part of the Passover feast by this time. What was in the cup?

      Troy Day Wine was a staple at passover. If Jesus himself did not drink wine, he set a table for His disciples to drink wine. How else would the cup represent His blood? Don’t say grape juice, grape juice was not pasteurized then. In the heat of that geographical area the grape juice begins fermentation the moment it was pressed and was likely fully fermented as old wine within 3 days, but immediately started becoming new wine (beginning of fermentation process, still has alcohol) shortly after being pressed.

    Troy Day look real close at Matthew 11:19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.
    This was Jesus Christ talking. Did He deny what He was saying?
    Jesus did say that He came eating and drinking.
    Jesus knew they had seen him eat too much and drink too much wine.
    If He didn’t do the first two things and they were false accusations then He wasn’t the last one also that he was accused of. Being a friend to sinners and publicans. If He is a friend to sinners and publicans then He also was a winebibber and a glutton. Meaning He may have drank too much or eaten too much.
    Evidently Jesus was a large man

      He said He came eating and drinking. The accusation was that He was eating and drinking too much. Jesus was/is holy. He did eat, but not too much. He did drink, but not too much.

    • Reply August 29, 2018

      Scotty Searan

      Link Hudson I understand your point, and I believe Jesus is Holy. Eating too much does not make a person is glutton
      If you study gluttony it is about riotous eating or stuffing oneself.
      I don’t drink alcohol. I imagine that if I drank a wine glass full of wine I would be drunk.
      But if a person who drinks wine every meal they could drink many glasses and not be drunk. I believe that is what the Savior was giving references to.
      Final since Jesus wasn’t a glutton or a drunkard then he wasn’t a friend to sinners or publicans

      Luke 7:33-34 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon.’ 34 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and “sinners.”

      No that verse says that Jesus came eating bread and drinking. Drinking something that would cause people to say he was drunkard. Wine. There is no biblical proof that Jesus took a Nazarite vow. He was a Nazarene, but not all Nazarene took the Nazarite vow.

      Troy Day You guys crack me up sometimes, but this has always been a hot topic that shows the backwards mindset of Christian beliefs in some circles. I don’t endorse drinking alcohol, but show me the verse that outright forbids drinking alcohol, anywhere in the Bible. I mean, there IS a verse that outright forbids eating pork, going so far as saying it’s an abomination to do so. But guys like you will fight tooth and nail to justify your swine-eating ways while waging war against something that’s not even forbidden in the Bible.

      Christians like you will condemn a Jew to hell for drinking wine at Passover while celebrating a counterfeit holiday in place of Passover, one that is rooted in pagan religion, that is celebrated by eating a pork ham, the very thing that the Bible specifically tells you NOT to eat, and do it to somehow honor the Lamb of God who was slaughtered on Passover with the rest of the Pesach lambs, lay in the tomb during the Sabbath and Feast of Unleavened Bread, and rose again… NOT on pagan “Easter Sunday”… on the Feast of First Fruits.

      That, my friend, is a very good description of HERESY embraced by people like you.

      Link Hudson 1. I assume you are talking about Genesis 9:3, I can completely shatter that argument if you need me to. 2. There were Gentiles with the Israelites when they left Egypt and the Torah was given to Moses, where the specific commandment to not eat pork, among other things, was given. Research who was in the “mixed multitude” that left with Moses and who is “the sojourner/stranger among you”. 3. There is not a single “New Testament” verse in the whole Bible that, in context, legitimately abrogates any Torah commandment about diet. 4. None of this really matters to the point that there is NOT a single verse anywhere in the Bible that forbids the consumption of alcoholic beverages, but there IS a verse that outright prohibits eating pork… and shellfish, and reptiles, and rodents, and birds of prey, and many other things.

      My point was not to start up yet another endless debate about the “food laws” with people who are too blind to see the obvious. My point was that so many people, like Troy, will prohibit alcohol as a sin and something against Scripture without a single verse to back it up while allowing for swine-eating in direct contradiction to a biblical commandment. That’s the textbook definition of HYPOCRISY AND HERESY.

      Well some of us have a mindset what Matthew and Luke recorded about Jesus telling them what they accused of He did not do. But with Jesus Christ I am sure that He.visited many places per day and those Pharisees were watching and they perceived t
      That he was glutton because he ate so often and they perceived that he was a wino because he drank so often. Jesus Christ did not deny it.
      I don’t drink alcohol but i believe that Jesus did.
      I also believe Jesus was a heavy eater. But he was a riotous type of eater that some people would eat till they were sick.
      I am a obese person, but I don’t eat till i am miserable or sick.
      I was raised to eat everything on your plate.
      Also our family didn’t eat leftovers so my dad and I made sure it wasn’t wasted and we eat the food to keep from having leftovers. I am sedentary.
      My dad was active. But he was large also
      We ate till we were full, not stuffed or miserable

      He came eating and drinking and they called Him a Man gluttonous and a winebibber. The beverage under discussion was winw. The Christian teetotalerism lens you read the Bible through had not evolved out of methodist preaching against distilled beverages. Drinking wine eas a part of the culture and there is no reason to think He did not drink it. His Father required wine and strong drink offerings so why would He consider the beverages to be evil.

      Troy Day There are acouple of passages that strongly imply it. It is unreasonable to assume that He did nit based on His statement that the Son of Man came eating and drinking. Biblically, there is no reason to think that He did not. Fundamentalist teetolarism had not been invented yet. It is silly and anachronistic to read it back into the text.

      There might have been one man who was not a Nazarite or Jacobite who tried teetotalarism-Timothy. Paul told him to keep himself pure but to drink a little wine for his stomach’s sake. Preaching that alll drinking alcohol is sin evolved out of Wesley’s preaching against drinking distilled liquor and even hevdrabk a glass of wine daily when he was in poor health.

      Why would scripture tell deacons to not be given to an excess of wine if it were absolutely forbidden to drink any?

      That’s beyond the point and does not answer the question about the Passover wine We know Jesus was not Nazarite because he touched dead bodies and more. How did Nazarites partake from Passover ? – no one is answering

      It is an absolutely established fact that Jesus’ disciples, as well as the broader first-century readership of the gospel accounts, understood Jesus’ phrase “fruit of the vine” to refer to juice from grapes There is ongoing debate as to whether the grape juice was fermented or unfermented

      There is a good reason why the gospel writers said Cup of the Covenant and not wine of the covenant. It is basically the Holy Grail of question 🙂

      Troy Day grape juice had yeast in it. Dead yeast could be sloughed off after complete fermentation so wine could be kosher for Passover. It is only in the 20th cebtury that unfermented processed grape juice processed with modern technology could be considered kosher for passover.

      I don’t think Yeshua could have been a Nazarite, the only suggestion I have heard that makes any sense about that is that He took a Nazarite vow at that last Passover. This is a theory some have proposed, stating that He is even still to this day serving His Nazarite vow that will conclude at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb when He drinks again. That sounds good, but it’s also heavily theoretical.

      As noted, He touched dead bodies, so He would not have been in such a vow at least until POSSIBLY entering the vow at the Passover just prior to His execution.

      Maybe this has been brought up, I have not been through all of the comments, but on what authority would anyone have accused Him of being a “winebibber” if He did not ever drink wine and therefore nobody would have seen Him drinking wine? The mere accusation indicates that His accusers would have seen Him drinking wine, wouldn’t it?

    OK, sorry for misunderstanding then I guess. I was looking into that and cannot find any information on it, and it is an interesting question. I suppose I can reach out to some people who might be able to assist if it’s that important to you. I guess I also never gave it much thought either.

    Though, I am wondering, and I would have to go back and double check, but is wine or any form of the “fruit of the vine” part of the actual Torah instructions for Passover? It seems to me, the only thing actually commanded was to eat the lamb with bitter herbs, and following was to have seven days eating unleavened bread. If there is no actual commandment to drink wine/grape juice/whatever, then there is no reason why a Nazarite could not keep the Passover.

    I will look deeper into it, but I just pulled Exodus 12, Leviticus 23, Numbers 9, and Deuteronomy 16, the four places in the Torah that detail the Passover, and not one of them mentions the use of wine (or the fruit of the vine, grapes, grape juice, etc.) as part of the Passover celebration. All indications would be that this is later tradition. It’s not a “bad” tradition, just study the “four cups of Passover” and the significance given to them, and it’s a beautiful addition to Passover. Plus, all indications are that Jesus followed this four cup system and that it was either the third or fourth cup (can’t remember off the top of my head) that He refused.

    In any case, I see no Torah commandment to drink any specific thing at Passover. The only thing commanded for consumption is the lamb cooked in fire with bitter herbs. So, that would be enough to allow a Nazarite to celebrate the Passover, just without the added tradition of the four cups of wine (or grape juice… I use grape juice at all the biblical Feasts because I to maintain a belief in abstinence from drinking alcohol, though I am open to anyone proven conclusively that Jesus drank wine, and if that can be proven conclusively, I’d be open to using wine at least during the Feasts, in moderation that does not allow for drunkenness… but it would take hard evidence for me the do that, and I don’t think such hard evidence would ever be obtainable).

    Luke 7:34 points out that Yeshua was accused of being a winebibber/drunkard. It would seem that the only way someone would have valid authority to make this accusation would be if they saw Him literally drinking wine. Maybe not to the point of getting drunk, but they would have had to at least seen Him drink it at some point. How to you explain the accusation being made if there was never a witness to Him drinking? (Let everything be established by two or three witnesses, right?)

In fact, some men would get drunk at a feast, and then the hosts would bring out the bad wine.

    I don’t think you are seeing everything I am saying though, because I pointed out that there is no commandment in the Torah to have wine at Passover before Link Hudson did. But my statement was at the end of a longer comment that cut off and you have to click to open the rest of the comment.

    Some of your comments have been this long too and I have had to do the same to read the whole comment.

    Tom Steele back in the day Melvin Harter had a good point on the Corithians drinking in verses 18-19. There were divisions and heresies in the Corinthian Church. Has it been considered that their drunkenness in vs 21 was their heresy?

    From another way round. In light of 2 Sam 16:1, Israelites have their own method already developed since long past to dry grapes, from which no doubt they get juice. In fact, for any who wants to avoid wine, they have another option of drink. Jesus might be one among them, I guess.

      Thangsan Hisfootstep did you read Proverbs 31:6 while you were reading? You mentioned a verse about not loving wine and oil. That is not the same as forbidding wine. Do you think it is a sin to fry in oil? To put oil in the salad dressing, or to put olive oil on as lotion? Why would wine be forbidden. If we consume too much expensive stuff it can lead to poverty. Psalm 104 tells us God gave man wine to gladden the heart and oil to make his face shine.

      Warnins against excess and outright foridding are not the same thing.

    Troy Day That is not a reasonable interpretation, that Paul opposed ‘real wine’ in I Corinthians 11. If that were his idea, it is noticebly absent from the passage. He mentions two extremes– one man is hungry and another is drunken. Neither extreme was acceptable. The verse shows they used ‘real wine’– which was just a fact of life back then. They did not have Welch’s. The issue is moderation. Everyone should have eaten. No one should have had excess. The fact that ‘real wine’ was the beverage consumed was not an issue.

    The New Testament repeatedly says not to partake of excess of wine. If you told your kids not to eat too much chocolate, would it be reasonable for them to infer that all eating of chocolate was strictly forbidden?

Even if you do have the scriptural support, it is never okay to bully people.

      Troy Day CBD is not a problem it is not psychoactive. THC is psychoactive and it is used as an anti epilepsy medicine in conjunction with CBD. It is now shown to assist people with Parkinsons disease and people who have had trauma to the head.
      Morphine is extremely addictive and is used to alieviate pain in people with cancer etc.

    HOW IS WINE DEPICTED IN SCRIPTURE?
    Wine was the common drink of the Jews, enjoyed with meals and shared with friends (Gen. 14:18; Jn. 2:3). It was also an essential part in the worship of the people of God in both Testaments.

    The “drink offering” consisted of wine (Ex 29:40; Lev. 23:13) and the people of God brought wine when offering sacrifices (1 Sm 1:24). The Jews even kept wine in the temple (1 Chr 9:29). In Isaiah 62:9 the people are blessed by the Lord in such a way as is depicted in drinking wine in the sanctuary before the presence of God. In Deuteronomy 14 we read “You shall tithe all the yield of your seed that comes from the field year by year. And before the LORD your God, in the place that he will choose, to make his name dwell there, you shall eat the tithe of your grain, of your wine, and of your oil, and the firstborn of your herd and flock, that you may learn to fear the LORD your God always. And if the way is too long for you, so that you are not able to carry the tithe, when the LORD your God blesses you, because the place is too far from you, which the LORD your God chooses, to set his name there, then you shall turn it into money and bind up the money in your hand and go to the place that the LORD your God chooses and spend the money for whatever you desire—oxen or sheep or wine or strong drink, whatever your appetite craves. And you shall eat there before the LORD your God and rejoice, you and your household. And you shall not neglect the Levite who is within your towns, for he has no portion or inheritance with you.”
    — DEUTERONOMY 14:22–27

    Leviticus 10:9 – Do not drink wine nor strong drink, you, nor your sons with you, when you go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest you die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations.

    They could not drink wine while they were ministering in the tabernacle.

    Ellicott’s Commentary for English Readers
    (9) Do not drink wine.—As the command that the priests are to abstain from any intoxicating liquors when performing their sacred functions follows so closely upon the death of Nadab and Abihu, the opinion obtained as early at least as the time of Christ that there is a connection between the specific sin and the general law, that the two sons of Aaron drank wine to excess when they offered strange fire, and that the present prohibition is based upon that circumstance. Accordingly, the Apostle enjoins that a bishop “must not be given to wine,” that “deacons must not be given to much wine” (1Timothy 3:2-3). A similar law existed among the ancient Greeks and Persians, enjoining the priests to abstain from wine.

    Nor strong drink.—The word (shēchār) here rendered strong drink, is the general name of intoxicating drinks, whether made of wheat, barley, millet, apples, dates, honey, or other fruits. One of the four intoxicating drinks which are prohibited among the Mahommedans in India is called “Sachar.”

    When ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation.—Better, when ye go into the tent of meeting. The Palestinian Chaldee adds here, “as thy sons did who died by the burning fire.” The same precept is repeated in Ezekiel 44:21, “Neither shall any priest drink wine when they enter into the inner court.” The injunction that on these particular occasions the priests are to abstain from taking it clearly implies that, ordinarily, when not going into the tent of meeting—that is, when not performing their sacred functions in the sanctuary—they were not forbidden to use it if required.

    There should be no objection to Jesus drinking wine. God asked the Israelites to tithe the wine as other products (Deut 12:17) and Jesus did not object to it in Cana, rather actively provided it. This is different from drunkenness or inappropriately exaggerated drinking. On the other hand we don’t have clear evidence Jesus drank wine or not. Meaning that is not consequential.

Did Mary have children after Jesus? If any of these and other questions is of value to our lives it would have been clearly written. It is safe to say Jesus had wine, he combed his hair and Mary had other children, but these were simply not mentioned because these are not important to our lives or to God’s plan.

      Jalal Aram Clearly you are missing the true meaning of biblical interpretation.

      The Bible reveals sufficient truth about God but not exhaustive truth. It does not tell us everything that God has revealed to His creation.

      The Bible Is Selective In What It Reveals

      Scripture informs us that not everything that Jesus said and did was recorded in the New Testament. The Gospel according John wrote.

      Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book. But these are written so that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through believing you may have life in his name (John 20:30,31).

      Scripture speaks of other times when God has spoken but the contents of what God said were not revealed. We know from John’s gospel that the words and events about the Lord Jesus that were recorded were only selective of the many more things that Jesus said and did. That’s why God continue to give us revaluation by way of the Holy Spirit to reveal knowledge and wisdom that was not written.

    There’s nothing unbiblical about wine, in fact it is biblical! And yes, Jesus drank from “the fruit of the vine” and will do so again! So what exactly is the issue? It is drunkenness and being under an altered state of consciousness. The Bible tells us to be somber minded and clear thinkers. Let us stop the falsehoods that drinking wine is a sin or what rot!

    • Reply June 14, 2020

      Gina Draker

      There would be no reason not to think that Jesus/Yeshua drank wine, as he was a first-century Jew. The ancients drank wine, celebrated ritual feast days with wine, and used wine in their daily meals. There is absolutely no competing evidence that the ancient Hebrews did not traditionally or culturally drink wine; unless there was a prophet who does not drink wine or alcohol and then the scripture makes that very clear why they were exempt from drinking it for a Godly purpose. However, this is never stated in the story of Jesus. We do know that Jesus used wine as a subject in parables and it is spiritually symbolic. Moreover, the only book of the Old Testament that doesn’t mention wine is in the book of Jonah. In Matthew 26:29
      Jesus states quite clearly:
      “I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine (wine) from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.” This in itself would have you believe that Jesus had drank wine on earth during his incarnation. But let’s look a little closer. We see that Christ’s first miracle was the turning of water into wine at the wedding, and at the
      last supper, we find him giving the wine as the symbol of his blood to be shed for sin.
      Now let us closely examine the time and place in which Christ lived and note the drink of every region across the Holy Land, from Judea to Turkey to Greece and beyond, and in all these regions and people groups they historically drank wine. Archaeological evidence has a bounty of wine jars and vats and the ancient vineyards discovered that were used for wine production. Not only was wine considered beneficial for health, as it is today, it was especially useful to drink when compared to many nasty water born illnesses. So, wine was the common table drink found typically at every meal. It is historically accurate to add that more high quality wines were also enjoyed at high holy days and festivals and weddings. There was no way in that time that any kind of “juice” (ie grape juice) was able to be preserved without fermentation. Truly it is next to impossible in a place like Palestine, especially given the technology of their day.
      More so, we find in Luke 7:33-34 Jesus himself proclaims:“For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil.
      The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!”
      *Please note that the JKV rendering of “winebibber” is oinopotes in the Greek and literally means: wine drinker.
      Thus, Jesus indeed drank wine! And why not? He created it!

    Yes, but not to the point of being drunk. We know He partook in wine. At the wedding in Cana when Jesus turned the water into wine, the Greek word we get wine from is Oinos. It’s the same word Paul used in Ephesians when warning believers not to drink to the point of being drunk. It’s also the same word used when he tells Timothy drinking it in moderation will help his stomach.

    There are many valid reasons to warn people against drinking in our culture, namely that it has negative connotations with many they would effect our witness. But we do more harm than good when we claim the Bible forbids drinking all togetherness.

    Jesus was the human incarnation of the Creator God of the Old Testament (John 1:1-3, 14). Fifteen hundred years earlier, when He commanded through Moses how the children of Israel should observe the various Feasts of the Lord, He declared that part of their celebration including purchasing and partaking of wine and strong drink (Deuteronomy 14:26). HOW the mere drinking of these beverages became a sin, I do not know. Do you remember that Jesus’ first miracle was changing water to wine? Certainly the wedding guests would be drinking the wine He made! According to Scripture, it is only a sin to be DRUNK with wine.

      Michael Wesolek Sr. While there may be 13 Greek words in literature that can be or is translated wine, that is not true in the New Testament: New Testament writers use only two words: The first is “oinos.” It is a fermented beverage as evidenced by the reaction of the steward when he tasted it (John 2:10). Such a response cannot be applied to mere grape juice! Oinos is used when Jesus turned water into wine, AND it is used when Paul wrote in Ephesians 5:18: “Be not drunk with wine (oinos) wherein is excess.” The other Greek word, “gleukos” is used only once, and it is also a fermented beverage as evidenced by its use: On the Day of Pentecost, when the disciples were speaking in tongues, they were accused of being drunk, or, “full of new wine” (Acts 2:13). In the Old Testament there are actually 13 Hebrew words translated “wine.” The verse I cited in my original reply where God encouraged Israel to celebrate His Feasts with wine and strong drink is the Hebrew word, “yayin.” It is a fermented drink as evidenced by Noah’s drinking “yayin” and getting drunk in Genesis 9:21. Again, drinking wine in not forbidden in Scripture, only drinking it to excess and getting drunk is.

      Donald Peacock Can’t take it upon yourself to make assumptions. God made the fruit of the vine and all phases of its metamorphoses. It’s the word FILLED and STRONG we have to look at KNOWING the Gin, Vodka, and Tequila are STRONG but that a sip doesn’t caused full drunkenness.

      With wine, a whole glass will not intoxicate a man…

      Look up juice in the Bible, then try to tell us that Christ didn’t know how distinguish it from WINE in His word. Wine that He made.

      Donald Peacock is this culture in the Bible? Where’s your scripture from Leviticus. He gave instructions for how to prepare meat and all necessary specificities there. So you SHOULD have a scripture to support this thing you’re saying was a command from God. This is about what GOD SAID, and not something else people developed over time.

      Jesus Christ’s never talks about mixing wine concoctions with water.

      Remember, ALL things are made by God.

      Mark Pliska Luke didn’t specify age of the wine Jesus drank – nor would it make much difference. Wine was distinct from “strong drink” – which had a significantly higher alcohol content.

      Jesus reference to “new” wine being put into old or new bottles was a teaching against syncretism – the mixing of the gospel with the traditions of men.

      While Jesus was from Nazareth, there is no indication in Scripture that he took the Nazarite vow – which, among other things, would prohibit him from drinking wine or even eating grapes. (Numbers 6:2-4)
