Foods Mentioned in the Bible
- Page 2
This is a list of foods mentioned in the Bible, sourced from the article "The Complete List of Bible Foods With References" by Mary Fairchild. It includes all foods mentioned in all major English translations of the Bible. I mention this to explain the existence of corn on the list, as, among the more widely used versions, corn appears only in the King James Version. Otherwise it is rendered as grain or wheat. This is most certainly more correct, as corn wouldn't be introduced to the Middle East until more than 1500 years after the reference. However, as the author included it, I do as well. I have also chosen to omit the supernatural or miraculous food references the author lists; it would be purely speculative to try to provide a suitable picture of Manna, for example.
