In a two-part series of essays, Rabbi Reuven Chaim Klein, the featured guest of episode #75 of The Jewish Drinking Show, shares both about words for wine as well as for various understandings of them. These two essays, “Purim: Words For Wine”, were published in The Jewish Press.
Part one of this series goes through the two most well-known biblical words for wine, יין and תירוש, as well as considering various commentators’ perspectives on these terms.
Part two of this series goes through other biblical words for wine or other alcoholic beverages, חמר, שכר, and a couple of others, as well as considering various commentators’ perspectives on these terms.
Hopefully, this exploration of wine and wine-related terms in the Bible is helpful for better understanding alcoholic beverages in the Bible🍷😀
