Column 6 - Water of life - Vine blood

"What kind of life is this", says the wisdom teacher Jesus Sirach, "if you have no wine, which was created for joy from the beginning? Wine is like the water of life for the person who drinks it in moderation. Cheerfulness, bliss and pleasure brings wine drunk at the right time!" Psalm 104 agrees: "Wine gladdens the heart of man" - who's surprised by the fruit of the tree of life? On top of that, wine, also called the blood of the vine, is, according to the ancient view, the symbol of the blood in which life dwells. Both come together in Jesus: "This is my blood..." he says to the wine and also: "He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life".
