Cheese, wine, honey and olive oil - four of Greece's best known contributions to culinary culture - were already well known four thousand years ago. Remains of honeycombs and of cheeses have been found under the volcanic ash of the Santorini eruption of 1627 BC. Over the millennia, Greek food diversified and absorbed neighbouring traditions, yet retained its own distinctive character. In Siren Feasts, Andrew Dalby provides the first serious social history of Greek food. He begins with the tunny fishers of the neolithic age, and traces the story through the repertoire of classical Greece, the reputations of Lydia for luxury and of Sicily and South Italy for sybaritism, to the Imperial synthesis of varying traditions, with a look forward to the Byzantine cuisine and the development of the modern Greek menu. The apples of the Hesperides turn out to be lemons, and great favour attaches to Byzantine biscuits. Fully documented and comprehensively illustrated, scholarly yet immensely readable, Siren Feasts demonstrates the social construction placed upon different types of food at different periods (was fish a luxury item in classical Athens, though disdained by Homeric heroes?). It places diet in an economic and agricultural context; and it provides a history of mentalities in relation to a subject which no human being can ignore.

Feasts in John

In this work Michael A. Daise broaches the question of the rationale lying behind the six feasts mentioned in the Gospel of John. He argues that, in an earlier recension of the Fourth Gospel, those feasts were sequenced into a single, liturgical year and, as such, furnished temporal momentum for the concurrent motif of Jesus' 'hour'. After reviewing the feasts as they appear in the narrative, then critiquing the major theories proposed for their purpose, the author presents his key premise that the Passover at John 6:4 is to be read not as a regular Passover, observed on 14 Nisan (first month of the Jewish calendar), but as the 'Second Passover' of Numbers 9:9-14, observed on 14 Iyyar (second month of the Jewish calendar). The law of "hadash" for barley (6:9) requires a date for chapter 6 after the regular Passover; the Exodus manna episode (Exodus 16), on which John 6 largely turns, dates to 15 Iyyar; the contingent character of the Second Passover explains Jesus' absence from Jerusalem in John 6; and, with John 5 and 6 reversed, the chronology of John 2:13-6:71 coheres. On such a reading, the feasts of the entire Fourth Gospel unfold within a single, liturgical year: Passover (2:13), Second Passover (6:4), the unnamed feast/Pentecost? (5:1), Tabernacles (7:2), the Dedication (10:22-23) and Passover (11:55). Inasmuch as this scheme brings chronological design to chapters 2-12, and inasmuch as those same chapters also chronicle the imminent arrival of Jesus' "hour" (2:4; 12:23), an overarching purpose for the feasts emerges; namely, to serve the motif of Jesus' "hour" by marking the movement of time toward its arrival.

Biblical Feasts takes a fresh look at all the biblical feasts. This is done from the perspective of reconnecting Gentile believers with the Hebraic roots of our faith: what the feasts are for and why they were put in place. We also learn of the overarching theme of the Jewish wedding and feast by feast trace the Bridegroom Messiah Jesus in them. Finally we consider the prophetic meaning of the feasts for us today and what Father God might be saying to us His bride through them.

The Lord Feasts are historical with prophetic implications. Historical in the fact that it follows the events of the nation of Israel as pertaining to the seven feasts the Lord instituted in Leviticus 23. These feasts are the Feast of Passover and Unleavened Bread, the Feast of the Firstfruits, the Feast of Pentecost, the Feast of Trumpets, the Feast of Atonement, and the Feast of Tabernacles. Prophetic in that the first four has been fulfilled to the very second, while the last three are explained to the very detail that they will be fulfilled in the near future.

Ancient Bible Feasts opens hidden Bible truths concerning Israel, Christ, and the church. These seven feasts given in their order and days of the year in Leviticus 23 are symbolic of the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ, the decent of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost; the future rapture of the church; and the great tribulation and second advent of Christ; concluding with His thousand-year millennial reign here on earth. Other books written about these feasts deal with the same events, but none has gone into detail or explained the meaning of the celebrations and sacrifices God commanded the Israelite's to celebrate so many years ago. Dr. Bailey explains the meaning of certain numbers in the Scriptures and shows their importance in these feasts and how these numbers prove the accuracy of the fulfillment of these feasts. He also prove from Scripture that Jesus Christ died at the time the Passover Lamb was killed in Egypt; the meaning of the blood being put on the doors of the houses that the Israelite's were in; that Jesus resurrected at the same time the last Israelite came out of the Red Sea centuries earlier; that the Holy Spirit came upon the disciples the exact time God came down on Mt. Sinai some fourteen hundred years earlier. He also explains the sacrifice at Mt. Sinai that points to the fact that Jew and Gentile will become one in Christ. This book is a treasure to all students of the Holy Scriptures.

The Catholic Church has always placed before the eyes of the faithful the example of holiness set by the saints. In the first Preface of the Mass for Holy Men and Women we read: "In their lives on earth you give us an example. In our communion with them you give us their friendship. In their prayer for the Church you give us strength and protection." Moreover, as the Second Vatican Council put it, "every act of love offered by us to those who are in heaven tends to and terminates in Christ, 'the crown of all the saints, ' and through him in God who is wonderful in his saints and is glorified in them." This book, then, should be a welcome addition to the ever increasing number of volumes that treat of the lives of the saints. With the addition of feast days proper to the United States, it is offered to the English-speaking public in the hope that is will foster greater devotion to the saintly men and women who are not only historical figures worthy of our veneration but models worthy of our imitation.

The first three feasts in the 1st month point to the Messiah's First Coming; the last three feasts in the 7th month, to His Second Coming. The middle feast highlights the Church, in more ways than is generally recognized. Dr. Chuck Missler begins to reveal the rich background of these feasts with many surprises for the Biblical believer, and yet only scratches the surface.
