Bible Symbols Glossary
In the Bible, everything testifies about Jesus. A big part of this is found in symbols throughout the Bible. God uses symbolic words to explain the knowledge of Jesus throughout all of the Bible. The writers of the Bible mentioned this often (Heb. 9:24, Gal. 4:24, Eph. 5:13, 1 Pet. 3:21). Here is a list of some of those symbolic words and their biblical definitions.
Wine/Grapes/Vine/Intoxicating Drink – Something that causes thoughtlessness, forgetfulness, unconsciousness. By implication, it can refer to “causing rest,” in the sense of “thoughtless/careless.” Also by implication, it can refer to rejoicing the heart, due to it meaning thoughtless/careless. Being drunk can therefore mean all of the above as well.
