Unlike other travelers, the twelve and the seventy, when sent forth, were wholly dependent on God, having no provision for their journey; at other times they carried provisions in a bag and purse (Luke 22:35-36; John 12:6; Mark 8:14-16). The English "scrip," originally "script," related to "scrap," was used for food.
