What Would Jesus Drink : What the Bible Really Says About Alcohol
What would Jesus drink? For the sincere follower of Jesus, the answer is not as easy to find as one might expect. Was Jesus really the miraculous bartender by creating wine at a wedding, as some have said? Did Jesus really drink wine at the Last Supper? Was the wine in the Bible really grape juice? Is drinking wine, beer or liquor a sin, or just a personal preference? Should a Christian abstain anyway, even if it's not a sin? Brad Whittington decided to dig deeper, to find every verse in the Bible that touched on this topic, and figure it out. He set aside any sermons he might have heard, any personal history, any personal preference, and began a search for the truth, committed to following it wherever it might lead. This book is a quick-read, a chronicle of that search and his conclusions. For those who also want to take the time to dig deeper, at the end of the book he includes a list of all 247 verses in the Bible that refer to wine and strong drink so you can easily read them for yourself and also read them in context. He also include a bibliography of other books on the topic, most of which disagree with his conclusions, for those who want to research further.
