View Full Version : Rusty meat

say, any of you Greek Geeks wanna respond to this?
Why is the greek word "brosis" translated "meat" in John 4:32 and then translated "rust" in Matthew 6:19?
Matthew 6:19 - "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust (brosis) doth corrupt,..."
John 4:32 - "But He said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of."

Brosis means eat. Rust eats metal. Meat is that which is eaten. ie, let's grab some eats. See Strong's dictionary.

My friend who prompted me to begin this thread is saying to me: 1,979 years ago how did they know that corrosion ate metal?

They looked at their sword and saw that hmm... I leave it in the rain it rusts. I keep it dry It don't be rusty. Ancient Peoples did not have our technological advancement but that did not make them mentally deficient.

I understand the fact that they knew that something happened when their swords became rusty i.e. parts falling off, but how did they know that corrosion(combination of an anode, cathode, and an electrolyte), physically ate metal?
