Not a sin characteristic of the Jews and not prominently condemned in the NT (though in later tradition it became one of the ‘seven deadly sins’). Jesus was denounced as a glutton because of the contrast of his lifestyle with that of John the Baptist (Matt. 11: 18–19). However, gluttony can lead to unbelief (Phil. 3: 19).
