Genesis - 9

I am providing you with a link so that you can have a tour of the Isle of Jura Distillery. This should only be done after the Bible study!



The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."

Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field.

But for Adam no suitable helper was found. So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

The man said,
"This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called 'woman,'
for she was taken out of man."

For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.
(Genesis 2.18-25)

God certainly knew what he was doing when he created Adam and Eve!

What is there about Scotland which makes it suitable for the production of whisky? I had no idea that there were so many types of whisky.

Whisky needs good quality malted barley and excellent water. Scotland has both! It is of course very much a matter of tradition. The distillers have perfected their task over the years and passed their knowledge and skills on to the rising generation. Most whisky sold in supermarkets is blended and does not show the unique qualities of each individual distillery.
