Who has not heard the refrain "Wine is in the Bible" especially during defense of the occasional glass of wine when it becomes more frequent in one's daily diet. So I wanted to know exactly how many times wine is mentioned in the bible after the utterance was voiced--not by me--recently.
Of course nothing definitive was yielded by Google Search. The Internet diverged from 114 times to 231 times, underscoring why search is in decline. Thank God :) for OpenAI's GPT-4 model. We got the answer right off the bat. ChatGPT pinned the number down to 216. We even asked for a list by chapter and verse and while going back and forth about the prompt being "exhaustive" or not we got a list of the 216 mentions. Here are ten of the more prominent mentions and following those you will find the "exhaustive" list of all 216 mentions of wine in the bible.
