Jesus Christ was a Jew. He would never partake of a pagan drink that would affect His clear mind or that would have a medicine-like affect if He was not sick. There are other ways to rest without doing this. He spent time teaching the prostitutes, publicans and others the greatness of His Fathers Kingdom, not just chilling with them. Too many try to justify a lot of activity by attaching their imaginary Jesus to it.

He agreed to take the sop from the soldiers which was an opiate laced drink that the trained soldiers carried to deal with extreme thirst and fatigue.
The first offer he refused because he wanted a clear mind without his will being hindered.

Eric Jones I do not drink but I believe each believer should make that call for themselves.
Eric Jones [09/01/2015 8:56 PM]
Yes…make the call to dim your God-given clear mind on purpose unless you are dying. I deal with people struggling to find jobs who have DWI’s, DUI’s, no drivers license because of habitual behavior such as this. No, Jesus did not sit around with His “buds” getting a buzz on to “relax”.

Did I say he did?

Jesus sat the table with sinners and publicans and drank wine with them.

pretty sure he sat on a chair or some sort of recliner…

Jesus never drank to excess.

Charles, give us the Scripture reference for that instance…or is that some extra-biblical revelation. If He drank wine with them, was it Merlot or what?

Look up strong drink you will do anything to do what you want to do God is a holy god and his people should live a live of holiness

it was Kosher wine, perhaps some of the King’s vintage wines. or maybe some cheap ordinary Mogen David!

Nehemiah was a cup bearer…

perhaps a wine taster for the King. Tasted to see if it was safe to drink.

He wouldn’t compromise, though!! HUGE DIFFERENCE!!

Nehemiah was cupbearer to a pagan King.

I’ve read that kava relaxes you, and I think they put it in certain types of ‘tea’ (that don’t have tea leaves) for people to drink before they go to sleep. Is it any more powerful than a turkey dinner? That will make you sleepy. Is turkey forbidden? Is it any stronger than coffee.
