Bread is biblical food. The prophet Ezekiel presented a particular recipe. This is the recipe dictated by God: “Take wheat and barley, beans and lentils, millet and spelt; put them in a storage jar and use them to make bread for yourself. You are to eat it during the 390 days you lie on your side. [2]” Ezekiel predicted the removal of all bread stocks at the end of Jerusalem and the Kingdom of Judah. This suppression would allow the inhabitants to free themselves from their sins. They would live in the obsession of bread ration and lack of bread and water.
