Insects and worms are not Kosher I am told.
Not familliar with the Kosher dietary rules and regs, my first thought was John the Baptist. The figure that strikes up mental images of the type that could easily endure reality television shows.
My second thought, was I thought he was Jewish.
This led me to wonder if there were multiple mini reformations going on prior to his birth, or after his following started.
But, I digress.
The narrative makes mention of him eating locusts. But, also honey.
I am guessing honey is or can be Kosher, but not sure there.
Could this also be a way of saying someone is sugar coating something that is bad?
Cover a bad thing up with honey and no one will notice they are swallowing the bad?
Not sure if the bible is intending a literal or some other type of reading of this passage.
Or both, or some of both.
Help me out here if you can.
