Matthew 12:1. Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn The cornfields near Jerusalem, attended by his disciples and some of the Pharisees, whose curiosity, it is probable, prompted them to mix with the crowd on this occasion, in expectation of seeing more miracles. His disciples began to pluck [and rub in their hands, Luk 6:1 ] the ears of corn, and to eat Just what sufficed for present necessity. The word σταχυας , here used, may indifferently signify ears of any kind of grain; but probably barley is here intended, that being first ripe in those parts. Dried corn was a common food among the Jews.
