I love the trivia quizz  that is posted in my google page. Still it contains  some very  disturbing errors, like it says that the sons of Jacob loaded corn in their donkeys. Corn is a grain from the new world. I think they should put wheat or grain instead.  Is not the first mistake of this kind I see in those quizzes, shouldn't they doble check and put the most accurate word or items?

I would hope that they would.  However one has to understand that more than likely the quiz was made by people who are not religious in the first place.

Hello Grisel,

Corn is mentioned throughout the Bible - 17 times just in Genesis. Corn was a general word in the Bible used for all kinds of grains, some types of seeds, some types of peas, and some types of beans. You're right that it isn't the corn we think of today, but it is a common term in the Bible.

Love In Christ,
Tom

Actually archaeology has proved that corn was found throughout Africa and the Middle East thousands of years before it was brought there from the New World. Archaeological digs have produced items throughout that were carved in stone that resemble an ear of corn and many drawings that look very much like cornstalks. Actual kernels of corn have been found in some of the ancient tombs of Egypt.

The English word corn originally meant grain and that was true at the time the Bible was first translated into English. It comes from the German word kurnam (small seed) and was applied to many different grains. The Hebrew word that was translated as corn is sheber which today would be more correctly translated to as grain. So what grain the Bible is actually talking about is a mystery.
