What does Scripture really reveal on the subject of dietary food laws? Our free booklet explains.
Many people have misconceptions about the biblical teaching on clean and unclean meats. What does Scripture really reveal on this subject?
Some people believe that certain New Testament scriptures remove all distinctions between clean and unclean meats. But what do these passages really say?

God reveals which animals—including fish and birds—are suitable and unsuitable for human consumption in Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14.
What about the common view that God forbade the Israelites from eating pork so they wouldn't catch diseases, such as trichinosis, from undercooked meat? Does this view hold up under scrutiny?
Many people assume that Jesus Christ abolished the distinctions between clean and unclean meats, even though, as we have seen, no evidence for this exists in the Scriptures.
