Our final episode in our “Food for the Soul” series is a bit of smorgasbord! Jello salad, baklava, honey and olive oil? It’s all in there as we explore sweets and fruit, now and in the stories of Jesus.
Fish and bread for a crowd. Fish fry on the beach. Fish and fishermen feature prominently in a number of stories about Jesus. We explore these stories and how they inspire our response to food insecurity in this message preached on World Food Sunday.
The first episode in a 5 part series on the significance and symbolism of food in the teachings of Jesus and our everyday lives. Find recipes and more on our Facebook page! References for this episode: Miriam Feinberg Vamosh, Food at the Time of the Bible: From Adam’s Apple to the Last Supper.
