wow vs. 6

Vs. 6 – “And, behold, this should be wine, yea, pure wine of the grape of the vine, of your own make.”

My thoughts:

  • I am assuming that this is referring to the wine used in the sacrament.
  • It is my understanding that “wine” in the Old and New Testaments was actually just grape juice.  Not the fermented stuff that “deepens the flavor” and “alters the body and mind”.
  • And, I would venture to say that extra sugar was not added to this wine to sweeten it.  That is a modern day practice.
  • I summary, wine today is not the wine of yesterday.
  • The wine of yesterday was essentially fresh-squeezed-juice.  O yum!
