In the USA, mustard is usually in a yellow plastic squeeze bottle because it is yellow; ketchup is in the red squeeze bottle because it is red. In France where the city of Dijon is a famous place of production, mustard is usually sold in glass containers.
Mustard in the Bible
Mustard can be found in several places in the Bible:
|“||He told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches." He told them still another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into a large amount of flour until it worked all through the dough." Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. Matthew 13:31-34||”|
|“||The apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith!" He replied, "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it will obey you. "Suppose one of you had a servant plowing or looking after the sheep. Would he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, 'Come along now and sit down to eat'? Luke 17:5-7||”|
