Bees and Honey

Old Testament references to bees are relatively rare (e.g., Deut 1:44; Judg 14:8; Ps 118:12; Isa 7:18). The Hebrew term דְּבוֹרָה could also be translated as "wasp" or as the name "Deborah." Bees are not mentioned in the New Testament. References to "honey" on the other hand, are more frequent, almost sixty times and found in both Testaments. In any case, a beehive apparently found at the so-called "Solomon’s Pools" was discovered recently in the attic of the Albright Institute in Jerusalem. You can read about this interesting and curious find here.
