New Segment: Fun Facts of the Bible

FFoB1: Honey is date juice

The land of Canaan is described as a land "flowing with milk and honey". This refers to the bounty of the land for a pastoral lifestyle, but not necessarily in terms of agriculture. Milk is the produce of herds, while honey represents a natural resource, probably the syrup of the date rather than bees' honey.
