  • Joe on Hosea 2:8
    If corn is native to the Americas, how is it written about in ancient Judah? Is this just because its King James translation?
  • Jesse - in Reply on Hosea 2:8

    The word corn in Hosea 2:8 refers to grain or wheat. It is not corn. From what I have learned, they didn't have cornfields back then. But they did have wheat fields.

    The word corn in Matthew 12:1 and Luke 6:1 can be replaced with the word wheat. These were not cornfields, but wheat fields. The disciples were picking grains of wheat. I am not sure why the translators put corn in our English bible, but the word corn in the Greek text is the word STACHUAS, which refers to ears of grain.
