By Nathan MacDonald

In old Israel the creation of meals was once a uncomplicated difficulty of virtually each Israelite. accordingly, there are few pages within the previous testomony that don't point out foodstuff, and nutrients offers probably the most vital social, political and non secular symbols within the biblical textual content. no longer Bread by myself is the 1st targeted and wide-ranging exam of foodstuff and its symbolism within the previous testomony and the realm of historic Israel. lots of those symbols are very
well-known, reminiscent of the forbidden fruit within the backyard of Eden, the abominable pig and the land flowing with milk and honey. Nathan MacDonald demonstrates that the breadth biblical symbolism linked to nutrients reaches past those celebrated examples, offering a set of interrelated reviews that draw on work
on nutrients in anthropology or different old disciplines. The stories keep sensitivity to the literary nature of the textual content in addition to the numerous historical-critical questions that come up whilst learning it.
Topics tested comprise: the character and health of the traditional Israelite nutrition; the connection among foodstuff and reminiscence in Deuteronomy; the confusion of nutrition, intercourse and conflict in Judges; where of feasting within the Israelite monarchy; the literary motif of divine judgement on the desk; using nutrition in articulating Israelite id within the post-exilic interval. The concluding bankruptcy indicates how a few of these outdated testomony issues locate resonance within the New Testament.
