Roman Period Glass Tear Bottle Used in Jesus time
A Roman Period Tear Bottle or CUP as the Bible refers to it 1 St Century Discovered in Jerusalem 20 CM Hight Great Condition Take this Cup from Me: A Look at Roman Glass Tear Bottles from the First Century When Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane on the Mt. of Olives in the holy land, he prayed to God, “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will but yours be done.” (Luke 22:42) Before the Roman period, glass was made with a sand core mold, and was extremely expensive (more expensive than gold), but during the Roman period, glass blowing was invented, which changed the entire glass industry. Glass became much more common, and one of the first types of vessels to be made using this new blowing technique is the small elongated bottle that we call the “tear bottle.”
