Do you believe that the dietary commandments of Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14 are still applicable to Believers?
Messianic Believers think that in obedience to God we should follow the Biblical dietary commandments that He has laid out in His Word—and that they were not annulled by Yeshua the Messiah or the Apostles, nor in the vision of the Apostle Peter in Acts 10. Although eating kosher is not an issue of salvation, it is an area of belief where the Messianic movement does run contrary to the position of mainstream Christianity.
For a further study into this issue, and a response to the claims against eating kosher, we recommend that you consult the editor’s articles “To Eat or Not to Eat?” and “How Do We Properly Keep Kosher?”
