The most prominent words nie.ui boiling,
fomuitiK, fiiini the nppenr.mce of the Juice run
ning from the pressed crapes into the vat. In
Scripture it iRued na it is m the crape growing
conutriert to diy for tho wine iu tho grnpe. Seo
Jeremiah xv 10, VI; Deuteronomy xxviil IS), Ac.
'So Bather wine and summer fruits." In Isaiah
ivi 10, Jeremiah xvLiii lit, it is used for the grape
trodden in the vat, and prob.ibly has the same
meaning in l'mlni civ 1. Jeremiah xi. 10, 11'.
Isaiah Lvi, Deuteronomy xiv X. Another word
translated wino means the grape as fruit of tho
vineyard in its n itnral condition, Isaiah i.xv P.
andli Clirotiiclts xxxi i! and 0, "lain in heaps."
The word with thi- meaning occurs :S times, nnd
iRulwnys spoken of as a blcbiug. Another word
translated as " flagon of wines" occurring four
times iu the liible is le.illv a cake of dried grapes,
ii S imuel vi 11), i Chronicle xvi 3, Ilosea iii 1.
In grape growing countries as France and Italy
they eat bread and grapes. Grapes contain that
which makes fljh and another part that gives
heat and force. Vegetable- matter hns a tendency
to decay very rapidly in hot countries, and doubt
less very often before meu wero aware of it, fer
mentation began in their cases of fresh juice, ns
perhaps was tho case with Noah.
Tho sugar in the grap combines with the oxy
gen of tho air, ferments and becomes alcohol and
afterwards vinegar. The wine or grape juice was
preserved, not by completing tho clnnge, but by a
process thai kept all its sweetness and nourishing
qualities pnie and whole, viz.: by heating it to a
boiling point. The grape juice thus preserved
from fermentation needs to bj kept from contact
with oxygen. The tlasks containing it wore care
fully closed, sometimes harried, sometimes iiu
merged in water. David in Ins flight hid it
brought to him, ATelcliisedeo brought it to Abra
ham. So in Lnkov 37,3!). Mr. Frank Wiigut of
Kensington, England, who is r. chemist nnd makes
puio nnfermented wme aiys, "My experiments as
n chemist made upon the various modes of pre
serving grape juice for s icramental purposes liavo
convinced me, not only that tho wme alluded to
might not have been feimented, but thititnmst
have been nnfermented." Mark what is, said of
it. 1st. It- is wino that will burst old bottles.
2nd. Will not burst but bo preioived in now bot
tles. 3rd. It is wme better old than now. Hurst
ing is plninly due to a fermenting action by which
large quantities of mixed gasses aio generated nnd
which, when allowed to accumulate within n con
lined spice, exert an immense pressure. Stiong
oaken, iron-bound casks nnd thick stoneware
bottle", nre rent like tissue piper by tho foico of
fermenting grape juice within. The bottles spoken
of wero tho common bottles of tho country . r.
skins of animals sewn together tho seams nnd inside
smeared over with pitch to mike them air and water-tight,
the old bottles being erv ofttn mbbed
over with honey for the suns purpose. Tho pres
sure which such bottles would bear oven when now
must be small indeed. There expansibility under
prcs-ane must also bo very trilling ; and henco
these bottlis, no matter whether they weio old or
now, must be quite incapable of resisting tho enor
mous force of thoexuausito gas arising from fer
menting tluid. Tho now bottlo would not burst,
not because it was so much stronger th in the old
one, but because as nothing would ferment in it,
its strength would never bo tried liko tho other.
This determining quality in tho old bottles, might
be derived from one or two sources, or from both.
1st from portion of tho skin where tho pitohvlin
ing had cracked or peeled off, being in a state of
decay thiough exposuro to tho air in a moit state;
2nd, from portions of sediment deposited from tho
previous contonts of the bottlo nnd which like the
bottlo itself would run into decay when exposed to
the nction of air and moisturo. In either case n
fermtuting action would bo communicated to nuy
fluid capable of undergoing such a change; very
soon nfter being placed iu such a bottlo, tho bottlo
would burst and tho wino bo spilled.
Therefore the wine could not have bceu tor
mented, because it would not bust tho bottles, and
the spirit in it would dissolve the bituminous lin
ing nnd so render tho flavor repulsive. It must
tiavo Uen unfermeutod. Sucli a tluid if intro
duced into au old bottle, would bo liable to run in
to fermentation very rapidly, and if left without
vent would soon make a way of escape. Hut if
properly bottled in new bottles which contain no
particles of ferment, it would remain fresh and as
Hecure as when in its natural bottles on the vine.
Such wino is better the longer kept. Jews make
Huch wine for the l'assover to-day, by pouring
boiling-water on dried grapes or raisins, never fer
mented wine. When such wino is condemned in
Scripture it is such wine alter fermentation has
set in. Therefore Scripture does not warrant as
in drinking alcoholic drinks.
