Dreams are often hiding secret messages and explanations to the things that are happening to us. Sometimes we overlook how important the dreams really are and how much sense they can make if we only interpret them in the right way.
Dream interpretation is something that needs to be done with care because almost every symbol inside the dream can have an important meaning. Dream interpretation is usually done by looking over the entire dream and separating the clear from unclear. Not all of us remember our dreams clearly and sometimes we can have trouble determining what is real and what our imagination in the morning was.
Dreams are consisted out of events that we go through every day and our imagination. Sometimes the entire dream is just a product of our imagination, but other times it makes perfect sense to us. Bible dream interpretation is the same as the regular interpretation expect the Biblical symbolism of certain things is something that is the most important thing.
In today’s text we are going to talk about cooking in dreams and what kind of symbolism it has for us. Something mundane as cooking doesn’t have to have a great symbolic meaning, but in some cases it actually can represent something much deeper and important.
Biblical meaning of Cooking
Cooking in the past was nothing like cooking today. The basics stayed the same but today we have much more food to choose from and our meals are far richer than in the past.
Cooking was some sort of ceremony in the past because it wasn’t done so often and family dinners had a special significance for everyone. When we think about the Last Supper, eating dinner and lunch with others represent bonding time and time when people exchanged thoughts and ideas. Cooking is not mentioned too often in the Bible, and even when it is it is not something that people pay too much attention to.
Cooking in Bible consisted of making bread, killing lamb or other animals and preparing them and from serving vegetable and fruit. Not everyone was so lucky to have enough food to prepare delicious meals which is the reason why cooking held such a special significance when mentioned, even though we don’t pay too much attention to it. In the Genesis 18:7; Luke 15:23 it is mentioned that when guests started arriving to the house the owners honored the tradition of killing a lamb and roasting it for their guests. This was a sign of respect and honor towards the people who visited their house. Boling was the more usual method of cooking in ancient times, because it was much easier and people rarely ate meat, so vegetables and fruits were mostly boiled and eaten.
In Proverbs 31:27-28 there is a mentioning of a woman who keeps everything organized in the house and is always watching over the stove making sure everyone is fed and happy. In Ezekiel 24:10 there is a verse where it is mentioned that the meat should be well boiled and mixed with the spices. The verse continues to say that the bones need to be burned.
