Winebibber

Winebibber

Drinker of wine.

For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a WINEBIBBER, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children. ( Matthew 11:18-19 )
