Drunkenness in the Old Testament: A Clue to the Great Jewish Drink Mystery
This paper is based on a project which is designed to develop a series of tables that catalog and categorize references to alcohol in the sacred scriptures. This report deals with references to alcohol in the Bible — or if you will — the Old Testament. This work appeared in the Drinking and Drug Practices Surveyor (18:18–24, 1982), and similar tables relating to the Apocrypha, the Pseudepigrapha, the New Testament, the Koran, and the Talmud will make their appearance over the next few years. Hopefully, by the time we have finished we shall have mined most of the basic scriptural sources within Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
