So what was the real "Jesus Juice"? Pardon my sacrilege but I have been searching for the answer as to which varietal wine/wines did the early Jews partake of. I've tried to google, but I'm all googled out. I want some real concrete evidence of which grapes were used to make the wine Jesus and all the Prophets of the Old Testament drank. Some questions I have come up with to find the answer are:
*Which grapes are native to Isreal and surrounding wine regions?
*What type of wines were used in passover?
*Which varietals date back thousands of years? (Pinot Noir? Syrah? Primitivo?)
There has been much debate as to weather or not these holy wines were fermented and contained alcohol and therefore caused drunkeness. I believe the Bible contains enough evidence to suggest that these wines were indeed alcoholic and if you do a search you will no doubt find the same versus of scripture.
I'm not a religious man, however I would love to drink the same wine as say Noah or Moses! Not to justify my drunkeness.....or hmmmm maybe!! ha ha! But I do think it would be cool to sip on some Pinot or Syrah and know that I'm drinking the same wine as JC!! Once again excuse the sacrilege, if anyone can give me a answer to this, backed with some good evidence, I will reward you with 100 BE Credits!!
