Wild honey was found in Palestinian rocks (Deut. 32: 13) in the carcass of a dead lion (Judg. 14: 8) and in a honeycomb on the ground (1 Sam. 14: 25). It was part of John the Baptist's fare (Mark 1: 6). Because milk and honey were to be available to the Israelites in the Promised Land (Exod. 3: 8) it became a custom in the primitive Church to give milk and honey in one of three cups offered to the newly baptized at Easter.
