GI: Welch's Into Wine

Hi, everyone! It's that time of day I just know  you've been waiting for, breath bated, and on the edge of your keyboards: Today's installment of GI.  Spelling and punctuation have been left pristine and original, as always. 

“Hey Just Sayn. There are 2 types of wine mentioned in the Bible. Fermented wine which contained alcohol and non-fermented wine which was plain grape juice. Jesus never drank fermented wine. His miracle at the wedding feast turned water into grape juice. If you read and understand the Bible you will find out that Jesus forbids drinking alcohol.”

Uhhhh…I think you might be referring to the Koran.  In the New Testament, it says in Matthew 11.18:

“The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners’.”

He drank. He partied. He even told jokes and danced.  Who would have wanted to traipse around Judea for three years with a Gloomy Gus, anyway?  --Irish
