V is for Vinegar

My posts for the A to Z Challenge this year are all about the Easter Story, recorded in 4 books of the New Testament: the Gospels. Image in sidebar links to Theme Reveal post.

In the Easter story Jesus of Nazareth (Letter J) was executed by crucifixion (Letter C). As he was dying he called out that he was thirsty. Because there was a supply to hand, the Roman soldiers offered him a sponge dipped in wine vinegar. John 19:28-30 

The vinegar is also mentioned in the other three Gospels (Letter G), but the context varies slightly. Matthew 27:47-49Mark 15:35-37 and Luke 23:35-37

Vinegar has plenty of uses, but is quenching thirst one of them?


My Theme Reveal contains links to the Easter story in the New Testament.
