DRINKING WINE BIBLE STUDY

DRINKING WINE BIBLE VERSES AND DRINKING WINE BIBLE ANSWERS.

You may have considered becoming a Christian, in the past, and for one reason or another, decided against it. I have been told by many of those I encounter that some Christians and even some Christian leaders, make it very hard for those who would become Christians to do so ...
 

Matthew 23:13
But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of Heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

This is because they elect to preach LAW to the potential Christian, instead of God's Grace by saying such things as "If you have done this or that, you will be damned."

For example ... If a potential Christian ever divorced their spouse, stole, abused drugs, had sex out of marriage, or anything else one can think of ... It somehow makes these "holier than thou" teachers of law feel they have the right to find the potential Christian unworthy of
God's Grace and to pass judgment, causing the potential Christian to walk away and never consider becoming a Christian again.

They even condemn these potential Christians for drinking.

If one suggests that people in the Bible drank, as the Word of God reveals ... They usually say that the wine in the Bible was not "fermented" and that it was not the kind of wine that gets you drunk.

Wow ... That sounds kinda strange.
 
We best seek the TRUTH in God's Word.

DRINKING WINE BIBLE TRUTH WITH DRINKING WINE BIBLE MESSAGE

The Bible is clear that there are many of God's chosen people who drank wine.

From Noah to the Apostles.
 

Genesis 9:20-21
And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard: And he drank of the wine, and was drunken
...


 

Genesis 14:18
And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.

 

 Genesis 27:25
And he said, Bring it near to me, and I will eat of my son's venison, that my soul may bless thee. And he brought it near to him, and he did eat: and he brought him
wine and he drank.

In TRUTH ... Even our Lord Jesus drank wine.
 
      

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.

And Jesus said that He will drink wine again in God's Kingdom.

Matthew 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.

Sooooooo, we have established that Chosen people of God and even Jesus Himself drank wine and that there is wine in Heaven.

However ...

Some like to say that the wine that Jesus drank and the wine that Jesus said would be in Heaven was not fermented. They even say that wine in the Bible was not able to get one drunk.

Why would people say this?

Simple ... Most folks think of drinking as a sin and they believe to suggest that Jesus drank fermented wine is calling Him a sinner.

But ... Is it a sin to drink wine?

THAT IS THE TRUE QUESTION

DRINKING WINE BIBLE FACTS WITH DRINKING WINE BIBLE EVIDENCE FROM DRINKING WINE BIBLE SCRIPTURE

Another reason they believe that Jesus drank fermented wine is ... They suggest that there are variations of the word "Wine" in the Greek and Hebrew text that may mean fermented or unfermented wine.

One can Google the words "Greek words for Wine" or "Winebibber" or other variations of this topic and find MANY web sites that say one thing and others that say the complete opposite, each defending their own point of view and/or beliefs.

Make sure you do not read one study and take it as the Gospel tho ...

NOT EVEN THIS DRINKING WINE BIBLE STUDY

It is ALWAYS best to use your Bible to confirm and to read it IN CONTEXT.
Then discern for yourselves, what you believe the TRUTH ... To be.

Soooooooo, the first question becomes ...

Does the Wine spoken of in the Bible intoxicate or not?

We just read that Noah created a vineyard and the wine he made got him DRUNK.
 

Genesis 9:20-21
And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard: And he drank of the wine, and was drunken
...

So, obviously THAT wine DID intoxicate the one who consumed it.

Paul revealed that Wine DID get one drunk when it is consumed in excess.
 

Ephesians 5:18
And be not DRUNK with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit
...

So, some wine in the New Testament times ... WAS able to get one drunk.

In fact all throughout the Bible, both in the Old and New Testaments, it indicates that wine and strong drink were in TRUTH able to get one intoxicated.

So, everyone should agree that there IS wine in the Bible that DOES intoxicate.

And most do agree ...

But, there are those who suggest that there is OTHER wine which was NOT able to intoxicate and that is the wine Jesus and the Apostles drank.

So, the question in everyone's mind and heart becomes ...

 

WAS THE WINE THAT JESUS DRANK FERMENTED (ABLE TO INTOXICATE) OR NOT?

Jesus shared this with us:

Ponder on this ...

Luke 5:39
No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.

Why is old wine BETTER than new wine?

Could be the taste ...

BUT ...

This was spoken of John the Baptist:

Luke 1:15
For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and
shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb

Why would Jesus say the following, if the wine was not able to intoxicate?

Matthew 11:18-19
For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. 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.

Why would they call Jesus a "Winebibber" if it was not fermented?

Who would care that Jesus was drinking Grape juice?

Very peculiar, huh?

ANOTHER INTERESTING POINT ...

There was a prophecy given by Jacob to his children foretelling their future.

When he got to Judah, he said a very strange thing.

Genesis 49:8-12
Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee. Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?
The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between His feet, until SHILOH come; and unto Him shall the gathering of the people be. Binding His foal unto the vine, and His ass's colt unto the choice vine; He washed His garments in wine, and His clothes in the blood of grapes:  His eyes shall be red with wine, and His teeth white with milk.

What a prophecy ...

Shiloh, is a word that represents the Messiah.

The Messiah is of course JESUS.

You see ... Judah was the bloodline that David was from and the bloodline that God chose to place Jesus within.

This prophecy even mentioned that Shiloh would be on a donkey's colt.

Just as another Prophet foretold of:

Zechariah 9:9
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

And of course Jesus fulfilled this prophecy.

Matthew 21:5
Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.

So, once again looking back at the prophecy foretold by Jacob ...

Genesis 49:8-12
Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee. Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until SHILOH come; and unto Him shall the gathering of the people be. Binding His foal unto the vine, and His ass's colt unto the choice vine; He washed His garments in wine, and His clothes in the blood of grapes:
HIS EYES SHALL BE RED WITH WINE, and His teeth white with milk.

Shiloh would have eyes that were red with wine.

What causes eyes to become red when drinking wine?

WAS THE WINE THAT JESUS DRANK FERMENTED OR NOT?

As Jesus said ...

Wisdom is justified of her children ...


Then there is this popular story in the Bible:

Jesus even turned water to wine so others could drink wine.

John 2:1-11
And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: And both Jesus was called, and His disciples, to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto Him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever He saith unto you, do it. And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And He saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, And saith unto him,
Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth His glory; and His disciples believed on Him.

Why would the ruler of the feast say, That people usually serve good wine at first and then a "worse" wine was served when men had WELL DRUNK? But, that GOOD wine was brought out afterward in this case?

Why would one serve a lesser wine after men had well drunk?

What made the wine that was served ...GOOD?

The taste or that it was able to lift the spirits?

In TRUTH it reveals in the Bible that wine was and IS TO BE used to make the heart merry, which fermented wine does. It was also to be given to those who suffer from a heavy heart, stomach ailments and is even to be given to those that are near death.
 

Psalms 104:15
And
wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart.


 

Proverbs 31:6
Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.

 

1 Timothy 5:23
Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake and thine often infirmities.

Jesus even used wine to symbolize His Blood for the New Covenant
and had His Apostles drink it at the last Supper.

 

Matthew 26:27-28
And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

This act has become known as "Communion" in many Churches.
 

1 Corinthians 10:16
The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?

Now a stern warning is shared with us by Paul concerning communion ...

Back in the early Church days, Paul found that the Christians were gathering together to honor the Lord's Supper by having this Communion and some people would show up late so others would begin drinking the wine early and were getting DRUNK at this gathering.
 
Paul said this:
 

1 Corinthians 11:17-29
Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse. For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it. For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you. When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper. For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry,
and another is DRUNKEN.

What? Have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? Or despise ye the Church of God, and shame them that have not? what shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not. For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

After the same manner also He took the cup, when He had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.

 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and
drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.

So ... It appears that wine which WAS able to intoxicate, was used by the early Christians during Communion.

DRINKING WINE BIBLE WARNING ON DRINKING WINE BIBLE DANGERS AND DRINKING WINE BIBLE CONCERNS

Which brings us to the problem with drinking wine and strong drink ...

It is habit forming, becoming addictive for many and it tends to make you drink more and more.

Drinking in excess can make you do foolish things.

It is excess of drinking and one's reactions from being intoxicated that can end up becoming sin.
 

Proverbs 20:1
Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.


 

Proverbs 21:17
He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.

 

Proverbs 23:29-30
Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause?
who hath redness of eyes? They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.

 

Isaiah 5:11
Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night,
till wine inflame them!


 

Isaiah 28:7
But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.


 

Hosea 4:11-12
Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart. My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God.

One more point that should be brought up ...

Paul also said ...
 

Romans 14:21
It is good neither to eat flesh,
nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.

This is saying that we should not drink IN FRONT OF those who it may offend or cause to become weak and stumble.

Then Paul said ...
 

Romans 14:22-23
Hast thou faith?
have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth. And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

But, if YOU know that there is nothing wrong with it (As long as you do not do so in excess) you are to have Faith and may do so in privacy and before God.

Do not allow THEIR doubt to negatively affect your FAITH in TRUTH.
