Research and Methods

Those of you following the move to reinvigorate Prohibition may or may not be familiar with the argument that the Greek word "oinos" doesn't really mean "wine" the way we mean "wine" today. The source for that is usually cited as Robert H. Stein's research on that subject.

With many thanks to my friend johnMark and the indefatigable army of reformed baptist internet research assistants at #prosapologian, I am happy to provide you with a copy of "Wine Drinking in New Testament Times" by Robert H. Stein, from Christianity Today, June 20, 1975.

You might want to take an extra 10 minutes at lunch to read it -- because that's all it will take.
