Sop

Additional Links

Sop. In eastern lands, where our table utensils are unknown, the meat, with the broth, is brought upon the table in a large dish, and is eaten, usually, by means of pieces of bread dipped into the common dish. The bread so dipped is called "sop". It was such a piece of bread, a sop dipped in broth, that Jesus gave to Judas, John 13:26, and again, in Matthew 26:23. It is said "he that dippeth his hand with me in the dish," that is, to make a sop by dipping a piece of bread into the central dish.
