Herbs Of The Bible

People throughout Bible History used numerous herbs, vegetables and plant products for cooking or medicinal purposes, including many that are still familiar to this day - coriander, cinnamon, cummin, mint, mustard, saffron, balm, aloes and garlic

Herbs

  • Then God [see The Logos] said, "Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning - the third day." (Genesis 1:11-13) (see The Seven Days Of Creation)

  • "Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground - everything that has the breath of life in it - I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning - the sixth day." (Genesis 1:29-31) (see The Creation Of Adam And Eve)

  • "So Moses stretched out his staff over Egypt, and The Lord [see Rock Of Ages] made an east wind blow across the land all that day and all that night. By morning the wind had brought the locusts; they invaded all Egypt and settled down in every area of the country in great numbers. Never before had there been such a plague of locusts, nor will there ever be again. They covered all the ground until it was black. They devoured all that was left after the hail - everything growing in the fields and the fruit on the trees. Nothing green remained on tree or plant in all the land of Egypt." (Exodus 10:13-15) (see The Ten Plagues)

  • "Then they are to take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses where they eat the lambs. That same night they are to eat the meat roasted over the fire, along with bitter herbs, and bread made without yeast." (Exodus 12:7-8) (see Passover In Egypt)

  • "Your plants are an orchard of pomegranates with choice fruits, with henna and nard, nard and saffron, calamus and cinnamon, with every kind of incense tree, with myrrh and aloes and all the finest spices. You are a garden fountain, a well of flowing water streaming down from Lebanon." (Song Of Solomon 4:13-15)

  • "Judah and Israel [see The Tribes Of Israel and Jews At War With Israel] traded with you; they exchanged wheat from Minnith and confections, honey, oil and balm for your wares." (Ezekiel 27:17)

  • "Caraway is not threshed with a sledge, nor is a cartwheel rolled over cummin; caraway is beaten out with a rod, and cummin with a stick." (Isaiah 28:27)

  • "Woe to you Pharisees, because you give God a tenth of your mint, rue and all other kinds of garden herbs, but you neglect justice and the love of God. You should have practiced the latter without leaving the former undone." (Luke 11:42) (see Who Were The Pharisees?)

  • "Later, Joseph Of Arimathea asked Pilate [see Pontius Pilate] for the body of Jesus. Now Joseph was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly because he feared the Jews. With Pilate's permission, he came and took the body away. He was accompanied by Nicodemus, the man who earlier had visited Jesus at night. Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds. Taking Jesus' body, the two of them wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen. This was in accordance with Jewish burial customs. At the place where Jesus was crucified, there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had ever been laid [see The Garden Tomb]. Because it was the Jewish day of Preparation and since the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there." (John 19:38-42)
