"Are any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord"


This recipe comes directly from the Bible. The old measures have been substituted with modern measure :

22 Then the LORD said to Moses, 23 “Take the following fine spices: 500 shekels of liquid myrrh, half as much (that is, 250 shekels) of fragrant cinnamon, 250 shekels of Kaneh Bosm ( Cannabis) , 24 500 shekels of cassia – all according to the sanctuary shekel – and a hin of olive oil. 25 Make these into a sacred anointing oil, a fragrant blend, the work of a perfumer. It will be the sacred anointing oil. . . .

Converted into today’s measurements:

liquid myrrh 500 shekels 5.75 kg (12.68 lbs)

cassia 500 shekels 5.75 kg (12.68 lbs)

cinnamon leaf 250 shekels 2.875 kg (6.34 lbs)

cannabis flowers 250 shekels 2.875 kg (6.34 lbs)

olive oil 1 hin 6.5 liters (1.72 gallons)

There's quite a bit of proven History in the Bible. Regardless of whether you believe in the religious dogma in it or not.

I would agree except they found it to be historically acurate.

Yeah, when I was ten years old my uncle told me the bible "is the bloodiest, goriest novel ever written". I don't disagree with his opinion, especially the "novel" part.

What a Novel is has nothing to do with opinions. It has an actual definition, and the Bible is not a novel.

In my opinion, it's ridiculous cannabis is illegal to begin with. The government should have no authority over what one chooses to put in their body.

How are you converting it into measurements when the shekel value is always changing, therefore causing the recipe to change?
