The Old Testament speaks most often of the baking of bread and cakes, which were the main part of the meal for Hebrews and Canaanites alike (Genesis 19:3; Exodus 12:39; Leviticus 26:26; 1 Kings 17:12-13; Isaiah 44:15 ). The bread of the presence (Leviticus 24:5 ) and other offerings (Leviticus 2:4-6 ) were also baked. See Bread; Bread of the Presence; Cooking and Heating; Food and Meals in the Bible; Kneading, Kneading Bowl.
