    13. Could the ancients preserve juice? “For here was laid up corn in large quantities, and such as would subsist men for a long time. There was also wine and oil in abundance with all kinds of dates and pulse heaped up together. These fruits were also fresh and full and ripe, and no way inferior to such fruits newly laid in.” (Josephus, Wars of the Jews)

Does scripture authorize drinking? • The wedding feast was seen as a religious festival • For Jesus to aid in a drunken festival contradicts the very tenor of Scripture • The headwaiter was sober enough to judge the quality of the wine 9 When the headwaiter tasted the water which had become wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the headwaiter called the bridegroom, 10 and said to him, “Every man serves the good wine first, and when the people have drunk freely, then he serves the poorer wine;but you have kept the good wine until now.” John 2:9–10 (NAS)

    20. Does scripture authorize drinking? 13 Let us behave properly as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual promiscuity and sensuality, not in strife and jealousy. Romans 13:13 (NAS) • This passage, and those similar leave room for lawful use • To prohibit much does not authorize little • A little promiscuity, a little sensuality, a little strife?

The word may denote abundance without excess” Archbishop Newcome, on John 2:10 and 1Cor 11:21 (Patton, pg. 101)

    26.

    27. Does scripture authorize drinking? 18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, Ephesians 5:18 (NAS) • The passage contrast being full with wine and being filled with the Holy Spirit • How can one be filled with the perfecting influence of the Holy Spirit when influenced in any way by the corrupting influence of intoxicating beverages?
