Ugarit and Phoenicia were closer neighbors of ancient Israel, and shared a topography and climate similar to that of ancient Israel. Thus, conclusions about the food and drink in ancient Israel have been made with some confidence from this evidence. On the other hand, vestiges of the cuisine and the practices associated with it continue to resonate in later Jewish cuisine and traditions that developed in Israel and Babylonia during the Talmudic period CE — CE , and may still be discerned in the various culinary styles that have developed among Jewish communities since then.
In the Golan , olives trees were grown and olive oil was produced there.
Wine and oil were traded for wheat with the cities on the coastal plain, and for meat and skins with semi-nomadic herders.
Wine and carobs were also exported to Egypt during this period. At Arad in the northern Negev , the remains of wheat, barley and legumes have been found, along with stone lined storage pits for grain from this period. Pottery was imported from Cyprus and Mycenae in Greece for the first time, probably for use as good quality tableware. After the Bronze Age collapse of urban culture, there was an increase in herding and the disappearance of smaller agricultural communities.
The Israelite presence emerged during the Early Iron Age — BCE , at first in the central hill country , Transjordan and the northern Negev , and later in the Galilee , while the Philistines and other Sea Peoples arrived at roughly the same time and settled in the coastal regions.
Pastoralism and animal husbandry remained important, and walled open spaces in villages that probably served as paddocks have been discovered. The construction of terraces in the hills, and of additional plastered cisterns for water storage, enabled more cultivation than before. Storage pits and silos were dug into the ground to hold grain. Under the united Israelite monarchy , central store cities were built, and greater areas of the northern Negev came under cultivation.
The Gezer agricultural calendar detailing the crops that were raised, dates from this period. Large food storage facilities and granaries were built, such as the city of Hazor. During the later Iron Age Iron Age II period, roughly the same period as the Israelite and Judean monarchies, olive oil and wine were produced on a large scale for commerce and export, as well as for local consumption.
Seven basic agricultural products, called the Seven Species , are listed in the Bible: wheat, barley, figs, grapes, olives, pomegranates, and dates Deut For example, rice was introduced during the Persian era ; during the Hellenistic period , as trade with the Nabateans increased, more spices became available, at least for those who could afford them, and more Mediterranean fish were imported into the cities; and during the Roman period, sugar cane was introduced.
Bread, wine, and olive oil were seen as direct links to the three main crops of ancient Israel — wheat, grapes, and olives. In the Bible, this trio is described as representing the divine response to human needs Hosea —24 and particularly the need for the seasonal rains vital for the successful cultivation of these three crops.
Deuteronomy — Bread was eaten with every meal. Vegetables played a smaller, but significant role in the diet. Figs and grapes were the fruits most commonly eaten, while dates, pomegranates and other fruits and nuts were eaten more occasionally.
Wine was the most popular beverage and sometimes other fermented beverages were produced. Olives were used primarily for their oil. Meat, usually goat and mutton , was eaten rarely and was reserved for special occasions such as celebrations, festival meals or sacrificial feasts.
Game , birds, eggs and fish were also eaten, depending on availability.
Fruits and vegetables had to be eaten as they ripened and before they spoiled. People had to contend with periodic episodes of hunger and famine; producing enough food required hard and well-timed labor, and the climatic conditions resulted in unpredictable harvests and the need to store as much food as possible.
Thus, grapes were made into raisins and wine; olives were made into oil; figs, beans and lentils were dried; and grains were stored for use throughout the year.
How can our food choices align with our Christian values? For example: Castration, debeaking, and other painful mutilations are routinely done without pain-relief.
Millions of baby chicks are mailed via the U.
Postal Service each year. Although injury and death rates are high, producers regard chicks as cheap and not worth the cost of humane transport.
They embrace any practice that increases profit, regardless of how much animal pain, suffering, and death it inflicts. Indeed, those who consume the products of factory farms are sponsoring violence.
What does this say about their faith? Can we profess faith that God is good if we believe that God approves of cruelty to animals? Because the huge animal agribusiness industry understands that most compassionate people, especially people of faith, recoil when exposed to these facts, they are doing their best to hide the truth from the public. What does the Bible say about meat? The Bible does not prohibit eating meat in all circumstances, but most Christians today have ready access to a wide variety of healthful plant foods.
In Eden, all creatures lived peacefully, and God told humans to consume only plant foods Gen. For a discussion of biblical passages related to meat eating, see all-creatures. Why did God create animals? Adam then named the animals, which we believe shows concern and friendship.
