This just caught my attention:

166:4.1.While most Palestinians ate only two meals a day, it was the custom of Jesus and the apostles, when on a journey, to pause at midday for rest and refreshment. And it was at such a noontide stop on the way to Philadelphia that Thomas asked Jesus: "Master, from hearing your remarks as we journeyed this morning, I would like to inquire whether spiritual beings are concerned in the production of strange and extraordinary events in the material world and, further, to ask whether the angels and other spirit beings are able to prevent accidents."

I am just curious, did people not eat 3 meals a day before the times of Jesus? do we have any records to that effect?

I find it interesting that the midwayers decided to throw in this fact out of nowhere, they could've simply started the paragraph with "on the way to Philadelphia..."

Just a fun find.

maybe "snack" would be a possible word to use
