Dear Friends,

A few more thoughts. If the original form of Luke 24:42 was read by some in the early Church as implying that Christ ate the honeycomb, but not a part of a fish; this would have been a problematic passage for many. To turn down what was just part of a fish, which even Pythagoras (who in 1st century West was most associated with vegetarianism) was said to occasionally consume, on the 1st Easter morn (the most high festive day), could not be explained away as abstinence for mortification or sacrifice. It could well explain why some manuscripts omitted reference to the honeycomb.

Any thoughts?

God bless you,

Albert
