Majority" (Sanhedrin) vs "Truth" (Jesus).
the Sanhedrin were 70 + 1 who sits as prince over them. or 23 as a lesser court, 22 + 1

Luke 10:1
After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go.

71 = 71

but I can speculate based upon known scriptures
You thinking of this?

Deuteronomy 23:12-13

Also you shall have a place outside the camp, where you may go out; and you shall have an implement among your equipment, and when you sit down outside, you shall dig with it and turn and cover your refuse.

The Law is spiritual.

Well; I don't know about Heaven, and I don't know about needing food for
energy, but I do know for sure that Jesus and his followers will be eating and
drinking common foods and beverages in the kingdom of God.


Matt 26:29 . . I tell you: I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now
on until that day when I drink it anew with you in my Father's kingdom.


Luke 22:15-16 . . I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you
before I suffer. For I tell you: I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in
the kingdom of God.


Luke 22:28-29 . . However, you are the ones that have stuck with me in
my trials; and I make a covenant with you, just as my Father has made a
covenant with me, for a kingdom, that you may eat and drink at my table in
my kingdom
_
So as I said I would do, I have done some research and I have found that there are way to many scriptures that talk about eating and drinking in Heaven even though scripture does say that we will no longer have hunger or thirst.
Rev 7:16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
Rev 7:17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

The word "feed" in Rev 7:17 is speaking of how Christ will feed/nourish us to supply the needs of the soul.
However I must conceed that several times the wedding feast is spoken of where lots of the best food will be available to eat. So I guess we will do some eating even though we will no longer need food to exsist.

The Law is spiritual.
Natural first, then spiritual (1 Cor. 15:44-46).

Exo_29:14 But the flesh of the bullock, and his skin, and his dung, shalt thou burn with fire without the camp: it is a sin offering.​
Lev_4:12 Even the whole bullock shall he carry forth without the camp unto a clean place, where the ashes are poured out, and burn him on the wood with fire: where the ashes are poured out shall he be burnt.​
Lev_4:21 And he shall carry forth the bullock without the camp, and burn him as he burned the first bullock: it is a sin offering for the congregation.​
Lev_8:17 But the bullock, and his hide, his flesh, and his dung, he burnt with fire without the camp; as the LORD commanded Moses.​
Lev_16:27 And the bullock for the sin offering, and the goat for the sin offering, whose blood was brought in to make atonement in the holy place, shall one carry forth without the camp; and they shall burn in the fire their skins, and their flesh, and their dung.​
Psa_83:10 Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth.​
Jer_8:2 And they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all the host of heaven, whom they have loved, and whom they have served, and after whom they have walked, and whom they have sought, and whom they have worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried; they shall be for dung upon the face of the earth.​
Jer_9:22 Speak, Thus saith the LORD, Even the carcases of men shall fall as dung upon the open field, and as the handful after the harvestman, and none shall gather them.​
Zep_1:17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.​
Rev_19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.​
Rev 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.​

The ways of the world, self-righteousness, are as "dung":
Php_3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,​

What will we eat in Heaven (also New Heaven and New Earth) - according to scripture?
Jesus told the apostles that He eats food they don't know about. Then taught that doing His Father's will is His food.

Mangoes? I hope there's mangoes.
Mango is a stone fruit, and thus of the seed of a fruit bearing tree, and so was likely (after its kind) something that existed in the garden of Eden on earth (Genesis 1:11-12,29), and has come down to us from there with some slight variation, and through Noah's (Genesis 6:21) caring. It should therefore exist in pure form in the 3rd Heaven, and New Heaven and Earth.

Scriptures please.
He was referencing John 4:

Joh 4:31 In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.​
Joh 4:32 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.​
Joh 4:33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?​
Joh 4:34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.​

Yet, while speaking of spiritual 'food', Jesus still ate physical food:

Joh 5:1 After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.​
Mat_9:11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?​
Mar_2:16 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?​
Luk_15:2 And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.​

Thus the same, even after His resurrection, and ascension.

Can you point to the specific Time Index in the video wherein the presenter said, "eating herbs brings you closer to God"? I have seen that video probably ten times by now. I do not know of the location during all the time in the video to which you refer, therefore, I would appreciate some assistance in you pointing that specific section of teaching out.

Presently, you are merely taking the word of another, rather than citing the original and actual material. Thus my questions to you about allowing others to be your filter.

The only pills that I might take are nutritional suppliments (like Vit C, Echinacea, Goldenseal, etc). I do not drink caffeine (it is an addicting neuro toxin). A "chill pill" (sic) sounds very much like what is known as a 'downer', and that I do not do, however, certain things like magnesium, or a deep tissue massage, or hydro therapy, and even exercise, can help those with anxiety.
Yes, merely taking the word of another. I used to take herbal supplements years ago and I find them to be genuinely helpful. I'm the one that needs a chill pill. Sorry about everything. Let's go in peace now. :)

Well, the fruit from the tree of life, for one.

"Then the angel showed me a river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2down the middle of the main street of the city. On either side of the river stood a tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit and yielding a fresh crop for each month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations."

It is also said that we will partake of the wedding feast:

"People will come from east and west and north and south, and will recline at the table in the kingdom of God."

"For I tell you that I will not drink of the fruit of the vine from now on until the kingdom of God comes.”

So, according to those scriptures, we will have the fruit from the tree of life. Though the type of food is not mentioned, we will eat at the wedding feast in the kingdom of God. And we will drink the fruit of the vine with the Lord.

I'm sure that there will be more types of food there that we can even imagine.

Just make sure you are eating His flesh and drinking His blood now, or you will never eat anything in the kingdom of heaven.

Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

Just to be clear, we are not eating the literal flesh of the Lord nor are we drinking His literal blood. This is evident in that on the night He was betrayed, He took [bread] and broke it and said, "this is My flesh," i.e. this figurately represents My flesh that was broken for you. In the same way He took the cup (fruit of the vine) and said drink it all of you. For this is My blood that is shed for the sins of many.

The majority of believers understand that Jesus was speaking metaphorically about His flesh and blood and hold that the bread and wine are symbolic of the spiritual bond created with Christ through faith.

Where do we find this in scripture
John 4, to His disciples, just after He was speaking to the Samaritan woman at the well.

He was referencing John 4:

Joh 4:31 In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.
Joh 4:32 But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
Joh 4:33 Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
Joh 4:34 Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

Where do you get the idea that the '3rd Heaven" contains the "pure form" of fruits?
