Bread is an interesting word. Did you know the French word for bread, le pain, means pain?
Pan is the Latin root for bread. Much of the European and English language is derived from Latin.
Bread is one of the oldest prepared foods. It is often called the staff of life.
Jesus, from the scriptures, is known as the “Bread of Life”. I think of the pain He suffered to bring us spiritual life. I wonder…is there a connection to the fact that the word bread means pain? Hmmmm, something to think about.
One of the best breads for health that I’ve found for us today is Ezekiel 4:9 bread and others of a similar composition. It’s a flourless, low glycemic, sprouted, whole grain bread. It is a complete protein bread with no trans fats.
The way this bread is made allows the protein and carbohydrates to be assimilated by the body more efficiently.
So a good physical bread gives us sustenance for our bodies while Jesus, the “Bread of Life”, gives us spiritual life.
