A boy squirting mustard from the bottle

Mustard is a popular condiment created from the seeds of the mustard plant. It is often used on hamburgers and hot dogs. Germans like mustard on their sausages, known as wursts.

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
"Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you." - Jesus (Matthew 17:20)
