Water

Graeme Hunter

Winter 2020 - Water

 

 

It’s sometimes said that every glass of present-day tap water contains molecules that Jesus drank. Perhaps it’s a way to make believers feel closer to their saviour, like the Catholic doctrine that communion wine transubstantiates into the blood of Christ. But is it true that every glass of water has Messiah molecules? Is all water holy water?
