What would Jesus drink? For the sincere follower of Jesus, the answer is not as easy to find as one might expect. Was Jesus really the miraculous bartender by creating wine at a wedding, as some have said? Did Jesus really drink wine at the Last Supper? Was the wine in the Bible really grape juice? Is drinking wine, beer or liquor a sin, or just a personal preference? Should a Christian abstain anyway, even if it’s not a sin? Brad Whittington decided to dig deeper, to find every verse in the Bible that touched on this topic, and figure it out. He set aside any sermons he might have heard, any personal history, any personal preference, and began a search for the truth, committed to following it wherever it might lead. This book is a quick-read, a chronicle of that search and his conclusions. For those who also want to take the time to dig deeper, at the end of the book he includes a list of all 247 verses in the Bible that refer to wine and strong drink so you can easily read them for yourself and also read them in context. He also include a bibliography of other books on the topic, most of which disagree with his conclusions, for those who want to research further.

Talk about What Would Jesus Drink: What the Bible Really Says About Alcohol


Manesenci
A few years ago, I stumbled onto a paper by Brad Whittington on the topic of alcohol (which was an early draft of this book). The author claimed to have studied every single verse (there are 247 of them) in the Bible regarding wine and strong drink. I dove right in and was impressed right out of the gate with his biblical fidelity. He categorized each verse as "positive," "negative," or "neutral." This approach paints a compelling picture because 59% of the verses were positive and more shockingly, 19% declare that an abundance of wine is a sign of God's blessing.

With this as his launching pad, Whittington's book carefully studies the relevant passages and proceeds to answer every single objection to the responsible use of alcohol I have ever heard. His bottom line conclusion is this:
"The Bible has several warnings against drunkenness, but only one caution against the responsible use of alcohol in celebration and with meals...The one thing I didn't find was a prohibition against the use of alcohol."

Instead of forming his conviction about alcohol on culture, family history, or in reaction to someone else's position, Whittington gets his from the Bible.

This book is a must-read for teetotalers and frat boys alike.

This was a very good examination of alcoholic beverages in the Bible. So many books and articles are written that preach total abstinence and after deciding what they want to believe they try to prove their premise with the Scriptures. This book examines the Scriptures in context and lets you decide from the facts. We have all heard the type of reasoning like, "Would a good God put anyone in Hell? " I believe we need to honestly let the Bible speak for itself and the conclusion of this book is that alcoholic beverages are not evil, but people are and can even cause others to stumble with their drinking or even eating meat. The conclusion is that while alcohol is forbidden by God, its abuse is and many can be trapped or deceive themselves with it. I don't drink because it can cause others to stumble but I don't condemn others if they don't abuse it. This is a fair and well written book on the subject that I would recommend to any Bible student. Another good work is And God Gave Wine which comes to the same conclusion.

Normally I am a speedy reader, but because I have always been intrigued by the subject of alcohol and the church, I wanted to read in a responsible and careful way. I found myself taking my time, as though I were in a race with myself. When I finished the short but concise book, I re-read it again just for pleasure. The Biblical research was exhaustive and very neatly categorized and all the Scripture passages are included, at the back of the book, for your own referencing enjoyment. In my opinion, I have found What Would Jesus Drink? to be the very best precept-upon-precept observation, of this subject, I have read, to date. I personally did a Genesis to Revelation search on this subject many years ago, when I was a very judgmental teetotaler trying to prove why Christians should never drink alcohol, even wine. After studying all the Bible had to say on the subject, I had to conclude that I had been duped, once again, by religious people with convincing convictions that were obviously not based solely on the Word of God. When I learned about Mr. Whittington's work of the same kind I did, using only the Bible as his source of information, I was instantly curious to find what conclusions he drew. I was not disappointed to see how true he stayed to the Word of God, guarding the Treasure with great respect. Although the author makes no claim to being a Bible scholar, I especially appreciated Brad's exegesis of First Corinthians 8, the defining Scripture passage most religions use to promote abstinence, without referring to commentaries or other folks well-intentioned sermons. If you are willing to lay down your pre-conceived and time-honored beliefs and if you want to know Truth more than you want to be right, on this controversial churchy subject, I encourage you to let this be the first book, after the Bible itself, that you read!

Well researched, engaging commentary on one of the more controversial subjects in the church.Whereas most treatments tend to become more sermonic and ethics based, this book digs into Scripture and from the actual verses, a reader can see how the subject was treated in biblical times and as instruction for how believers are to respond to wine/strong drink. I appreciated the author's candid approach and enjoyed the journey he undertook as the research began to undermine his prior conviction on the subject. I look forward to discussing this material with some of my brothers who I am sure will be quite surprised to hear how well documented and overwhelming the book's research from Scripture presents the subject of partaking in wine/strong drink.
