  1. I have a question. Is the wine taken during Jesus’ time same as: wine that Noah made, got drug and led him to curse Ham and is it still the same wine that Lot’s daughters gave him and sinned by sleeping with their father?

  2. John Padberg,

    Thank you for your response. I have also thought about this topic. I have some experience with the problems that come from drinking, both with myself and with my fellow christians. The people I live with think that Jesus and the apostles drank real wine and they themselves have shown some real godlessness in doing so. Me too, in my own way although differently. Its hard to say and be sure of what they meant with wine in those days because the word apparently can mean different things.

    What I´ve been thinking about is the word that Jesus said about cutting off your arm if it´s tempting you to sin. -That it´s better to walk into the Kingdom of Heaven without an arm than to burn in hell forver. I think this could be the right approach to wine drinking.

    Best regards

  3. Hello,
    I’ve just just read your treatise on drinking wine (I assume you mean any alcohol) and I’m sorry but although your article well researched it still seemed to say that it’s up to the individual to determine whether or not our Lord Jesus Christ meant straight grape juice or the juice of the fermented grape or both when he referred to drinking wine.
    So with that I’ll stick with my old fall backs of do all things in moderation and to do nothing that would hurt others.
    Both of which are not easy to do.

    Thank for your article and your time and may God Bless you and yours.

    John Padberg
