Is Dietary Kosher
Law New Covenant or Not?
This writing is will help you understand
Dietary Law, that is to say what is Kosher, and what is not,
and how, and if it still applies, and to whom.
We will take a look at this issue from Both Old, and
New Covenants says about Dietary Law, and why it was given.
We will also take a look a what the New Covenant says about
So let us now start where it all began
Leviticus 11:1 And YHWH spoke unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto
Leviticus 11:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These
are the beasts which ye shall eat among all the beasts that
are on the earth.
Leviticus 11:3 Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is
cloven-footed, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that
shall ye eat.
Leviticus 11:4 Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that
chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel,
because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is
unclean unto you.
Leviticus 11:5 And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but
divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
Leviticus 11:6 And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but
divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
Leviticus 11:7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof,
and be cloven-footed, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is
unclean to you.

carcass shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.

whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas,
and in the rivers, them shall ye eat.
Leviticus 11:10 And all that have not fins and scales in the
seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and
of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an
abomination unto you:
Leviticus 11:11 They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye
shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their
carcasses in abomination.
Leviticus 11:12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the
waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.
Leviticus 11:13 And these are they which ye shall have in
abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they
are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the
Leviticus 11:14 And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;
Leviticus 11:15 Every raven after his kind;
Leviticus 11:16 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckoo,
and the hawk after his kind,
Leviticus 11:17 And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the
Leviticus 11:18 And the swan, and the pelican, and the
Leviticus 11:19 And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the
lapwing, and the bat.
Leviticus 11:20 All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall
be an abomination unto you.
Leviticus 11:21 Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping
thing that goeth upon all four, which have legs above their
feet, to leap withal upon the earth;
Leviticus 11:22 Even these of them ye may eat; the locust after
his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle
after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.
Leviticus 11:23 But all other flying creeping things, which have
four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.
Leviticus 11:24 And for these ye shall be unclean: whosoever
toucheth the carcass of them shall be unclean until the
Leviticus 11:25 And whosoever beareth aught of the carcass of
them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.
Leviticus 11:26 The carcasses of every beast which divideth the
hoof, and is not cloven-footed, nor cheweth the cud, are
unclean unto you: every one that toucheth them shall be
Leviticus 11:27 And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all
manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto
you: whoso toucheth their carcass shall be unclean until the
Leviticus 11:28 And he that beareth the carcass of them shall
wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: they are
unclean unto you.
Leviticus 11:29 These also shall be unclean unto you among the
creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and
the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind,
Leviticus 11:30 And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the
lizard, and the snail, and the mole.
Leviticus 11:31 These are unclean to you among all that creep:
whosoever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be
unclean until the even.
Leviticus 11:32 And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are
dead, doth fall, it shall be unclean; whether it be any
vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatsoever
vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it must be put into
water, and it shall be unclean until the even; so it shall
Leviticus 11:33 And
every earthen vessel, whereinto any of them falleth,
whatsoever is in it shall be unclean; and ye shall break it.
Leviticus 11:34 Of all meat which may be eaten, that on which
such water cometh shall be unclean: and all drink that may
be drunk in every such vessel shall be unclean.
Leviticus 11:35 And every thing whereupon any part of their
carcass falleth shall be unclean; whether it be oven, or
ranges for pots, they shall be broken down: for they are
unclean, and shall be unclean unto you.
Leviticus 11:36 Nevertheless a fountain or pit, wherein there is
plenty of water, shall be clean: but that which toucheth
their carcass shall be unclean.
Leviticus 11:37 And if any part of their carcass fall upon any
sowing seed which is to be sown, it shall be clean.
Leviticus 11:38 But if any water be put upon the seed, and any
part of their carcass fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto
Leviticus 11:39 And if any beast, of which ye may eat, die; he
that toucheth the carcass thereof shall be unclean until the
Leviticus 11:40 And he that eateth of the carcass of it shall
wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: he also
that beareth the carcass of it shall wash his clothes, and
be unclean until the even.
Leviticus 11:41 And every creeping thing that creepeth upon the
earth shall be an abomination; it shall not be eaten.
Leviticus 11:42 Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever
goeth upon all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all
creeping things that creep upon the earth, them ye shall not
eat; for they are an abomination.
Leviticus 11:43 Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any
creeping thing that creepeth, neither shall ye make
yourselves unclean with them, that ye should be defiled
Leviticus 11:44 For I am YHWH your Elohim: ye shall therefore
sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy:
neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of
creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Leviticus 11:45 For I am YHWH that bringeth you up out of the
land of Egypt, to be your Elohim: ye shall therefore be
holy, for I am holy.
Leviticus 11:46 This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl,
and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and
of every creature that creepeth upon the earth:
Leviticus 11:47 To make a difference between the unclean and the
clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast
that may not be eaten.
Word is very clear as to what is clean, and unclean
Deuteronomy also explains what is clean, and unclean.
Deuteronomy 14:1 Ye are the children of YHWH your
Elohim: ye shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness
between your eyes for the dead.
Deuteronomy 14:2 For thou art a holy people unto YHWH thy Elohim,
and the YHWH hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto
himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.
Deuteronomy 14:3 Thou shalt not eat any abominable thing.
Deuteronomy 14:4 These are the beasts which ye shall eat: the ox,
the sheep, and the goat,
Deuteronomy 14:5 The hart, and the roebuck, and the fallow deer,
and the wild goat, and the pygarg, and the wild ox, and the
Deuteronomy 14:6 And every beast that parteth the hoof, and
cleaveth the cleft into two claws, and cheweth the cud among
the beasts, that ye shall eat.
Deuteronomy 14:7 Nevertheless these ye shall not eat of them that
chew the cud, or of them that divide the cloven hoof; as the
camel, and the hare, and the coney: for they chew the cud,
but divide not the hoof; therefore they are unclean unto
Deuteronomy 14:8 And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet
cheweth not the cud, it is unclean unto you: ye shall not
eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcass.
Deuteronomy 14:9 These ye shall eat of all that are in the waters:
all that have fins and scales shall ye eat:
Deuteronomy 14:10 And whatsoever hath not fins and scales ye may
not eat; it is unclean unto you.
Deuteronomy 14:11 Of all clean birds ye shall eat.
Deuteronomy 14:12 But these are they of which ye shall not eat: the
eagle, and the ossifrage, and the osprey,
Deuteronomy 14:13 And the glede, and the kite, and the vulture
after his kind,
Deuteronomy 14:14 And every raven after his kind,
Deuteronomy 14:15 And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckoo,
and the hawk after his kind,
Deuteronomy 14:16 The little owl, and the great owl, and the swan,
Deuteronomy 14:17 And the pelican, and the gier-eagle, and the
Deuteronomy 14:18 And the stork, and the heron after her kind, and
the lapwing, and the bat.
Deuteronomy 14:19 And every creeping thing that flieth is unclean
unto you: they shall not be eaten.
Deuteronomy 14:20 But of all clean fowls ye may eat.
Deuteronomy 14:21 Ye shall not eat of any thing that dieth of
itself: thou shalt give it unto the stranger that is in thy
gates, that he may eat it; or thou mayest sell it unto an
alien: for thou art a holy people unto YHWH thy Elohim. Thou
shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.
Deuteronomy 14:22 Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy
seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year.
Deuteronomy 14:23 And thou shalt eat before YHWH thy Elohim,
in the place which he shall choose to place his name there,
the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and
the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou
mayest learn to fear YHWH thy Elohim always.
Deuteronomy 14:24 And if the way be too long for thee, so that
thou art not able to carry it; or if the place be too far
from thee, which YHWH thy Elohim shall choose to set his
name there, when YHWH thy Elohim hath blessed thee:
Deuteronomy 14:25 Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up
the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which
YHWH thy Elohim shall choose:
Deuteronomy 14:26 And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever
thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine,
or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth:
and thou shalt eat there before YHWH thy Elohim, and thou
shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household,
Deuteronomy 14:27 And the Levite that is within thy gates; thou
shalt not forsake him; for he hath no part nor inheritance
Deuteronomy 14:28 At the end of three years thou shalt bring forth
all the tithe of thine increase the same year, and shalt lay
it up within thy gates:
Deuteronomy 14:29 And the
Levite, (because he hath no part nor inheritance with thee,)
and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, which
are within thy gates, shall come, and shall eat and be
satisfied; that YHWH thy Elohim may bless thee in all the
work of thine hand which thou doest.
YHWH's Word is very clear as to
what is clean, and unclean.

away with. If this is the case why would the same people

is a transgression of the Law, and to say that there is not law
you would have to say that there is no sin, and if you believe
that you only need to take a brief look outside, and on the
evening news, to realize that sin is rampant.
Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread
alone, but by every
word that proceedeth out of the mouth of YHWH.
This is a

Matthew 5:17 Think not that

to destroy, but to fulfill.

in our hearts. He does this by placing his spirit in our
Matthew 5:18 For
verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or
one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be
Earth has not yet passed, because Yeshua has not yet returned.
Yeshua came to complete the
law about what was written about his coming.
These things are written about him in the Old Testament.
Here it is pay
Revelation 21:1 And I
saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven
first earth were passed away; and there was
no more sea.
This is what Yeshua was talking about in
for the "first heaven and
the first earth were passed away"
Without the Law / Torah we have nothing to
follow for guidance, and with no law there is only
Malachi 3:6 For I am
YHWH, I change not; therefore ye
sons of Jacob are not consumed.
Sense YHWH does not change
there is a big problem with understanding that
Yeshua did away with the law.
The ONLY reason that Yeshua came was so
that many might be saved, with the shedding of his
blood is to wash away our Sins, NOT to wash away the
Yeshua the Messiah the same yesterday, and today, and
Yeshua does not
change either, and we are to follow Him, why would you think we
would do any differently?
Jonh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim.
YHWH equates Himself with His name, with His Word, which
shows us who He is!
"I CHANGE NOT"
Then the clean food laws that are very
quickly figured to be done away with
have to be understood by this
Matthew is ONLY
talking about clean hands, a verse that had been
added in about "Yeshua declared all foods clean"

Bible by Jay P. Green, Sr.
Yeshua does not
declare that all meats are clean.
10:14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never
eaten any thing that is common or unclean.
Acts 10:15 Again a voice came to
him a second time, "What Elohim has cleansed, no longer consider
Acts 10:16 This happened three
times, and immediately the object was taken up into the sky.
Acts 10:17 Now while Peter was
greatly perplexed in mind as to what the vision which he had
seen might be, behold, the men who had been sent by Cornelius,
having asked directions for Simon's house, appeared at the
And he said to them, "You yourselves know how unlawful it is for
a man who is a Jew to associate with a foreigner or to visit
him; and yet
Elohim has shown me that I should not call any man unholy or
to understanding this vision is that we are not to call any man
common or unclean.
But Peter began speaking and proceeded to explain to them in
orderly sequence, saying,
Acts 11:5 "I
was in the city of Joppa praying; and in a trance I saw a
vision, an object coming down like a great sheet lowered by four
corners from the sky; and it came right down to me,
and when I had fixed my gaze on it and was observing it I saw
the four-footed animals of the earth and the wild beasts and the
crawling creatures and the birds of the air.
Acts 11:7 "I
also heard a voice saying to me, 'Get up, Peter; kill and eat.'
"But I said, 'By no
means, Master, for nothing unholy or unclean has ever entered
"But a voice from heaven answered a second time, 'What Elohim has cleansed,
no longer consider unholy.' The
gentiles we considered unholy, and unclean just like unclean
food. This vision was used as a paralell to get Peter to
understand what had been cleansed, and that was people.
"This happened three times, and everything was drawn back up
into the sky.
"And behold, at that moment three men appeared at the house in
which we were staying, having been sent to me from Caesarea.
Elohim has showed me that I should
not call "any man" common or unclean.
If this was a matter of making unclean
foods clean than what Yeshua said in Matthew 5:17,18 is
untrue. So we have one of three possibilities, and they are.
1. The writer of Acts Chapter 10, and 11 is a lie or
2. Messiah lied in Matthew 5:17,18 or
3. Most interpret these verses wrong!
I firmly believe that latter, because most people want to do
things their own way.
Matthew 5:17 "Do not think
that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come
to abolish but to fulfill.
Matthew 5:18 "For truly I
say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the
smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is
now understands what this vision was all about.
It is not about making food clean, it is
about making people clean.
This is all about grafting in believers into Israel
1 Timothy 4:2 Speaking
lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot
1 Timothy 4:3 Forbidding to
marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which Elohim hath
created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe
and know the truth.
I believe that the answer is here...
Elohim hath created
to be received with thanksgiving of them which
believe and know the truth"
Now if he had created clean foods, and then
changed his mind in the New Testament there is a

a Liar, because he says he does not change, or

By saying we are all free go do whatever you want.
I have a problem with this line of thinking,

"sanctified" means Set apart by the (word) NOT our
word, rather it is the "Law" Teaching / Instruction
aka Torah, which all most all Christians hate.
Who can sanctify anything? There is only one who can
sanctify, and that is YHWH!
and set apart what was healthy for us long ago. Some
minor research you can find that what YHWH calls
unclean is the most unhealthy food there is. Did
YHWH not anticipate this? Of course He did! They say
they make pork without salt, but it is still
unhealthy, because it is still grease fat puke eat
creature. You can prayer over it all day, and it
will still be unclean / unhealthy.
You can pray over mercury or arsenic, all day and it
will still kill you
Most Christians hate the Old Covenant because
they want to escape from the law, instead of
Either way no matter what we all will be judged
according to our works.
Where there is neither Greek nor Jew,
circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian,

At the end of the day it's all about "faith" of
interpreting the scriptures.
15:3 For I delivered to you at the first that
which I also received: that Messiah
died for our sins according to the
Scriptures, "The Scriptures"
Yeshua died for our sins, not to make foods
clean, but rather to make people clean through His
Sacrifice. Yeshua died for our sins not to set us
free from the Torah!
Yeshua said that He came to save that
which was lost, not to make everything clean so we can
eat what we want to!
Matthew 18:11 For the Son of man is come
to save that which was lost.
Luke15:6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his
friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for
I have found my sheep which was lost.
Luke19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save
that which was lost.
Clearly you can now see that Yeshua did not remove the law aka
Torah nor make foods clean by His death. Saying so would be an
insult to Him!
When doctors say don't eat
pork no one seems to have a problem with it, but when YHWH's
Word says so few can accept it for what it is. YHWH's Word says
it, and that should be final, but rather there are millions whom
reject His perfect Word.
