10 Foods and Drinks Jesus Likely Consumed
Christ was cooking fish when first seen by some of His disciples after His Resurrection. Fish is an excellent source of lean protein, an essential part of our regular diet. Additionally, fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, sardines, lake trout, and herring are excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids. The omega-3 fatty acids have been reported to have anti-inflammatory actions and consumption of adequate amounts of omega-3 fatty acids have been suggested to support healthy blood lipid levels, reduce blood pressure, and reduce heart disease risk. Fishing was a common occupation during Jesus’ day. Christ asked Simon (also called Peter) and his brother Andrew to follow Him to become “Fishers of Men” at the Sea of Galilee.
