Deuteronomy 14:1-29

1 »You are the sons of Jehovah your God. Do not cut yourselves nor shave your forehead for the sake of the dead. 2 »You are a holy people to Jehovah your God. Out of all the people on the face of the earth Jehovah has chosen you to be a people for His own possession. 3 »Do not eat any detestable thing. 4 »These are the animals you may eat: the ox, the sheep, the goat, 5 the deer, the gazelle, the roebuck, the wild goat, the ibex, the antelope (chamois) and the mountain sheep. 6 »You may eat any animal that divides the hoof and has the hoof split in two and chews the cud. 7 »Do not eat of these that chew the cud, or among those that divide the hoof in two: the camel and the rabbit and the shaphan. Even though they chew the cud, they do not divide the hoof. They are unclean for you. 8 »The pig, because it divides the hoof but does not chew the cud, it is unclean for you. Do not eat any of their flesh nor touch their carcasses. 9 »These you may eat of all that are in water: anything that has fins and scales you may eat. 10 »Do not eat anything that does not have fins and scales. It is unclean for you. 11 »You may eat any clean bird. 12 »These are the ones you should not eat: the eagle and the vulture and the buzzard, 13 and the red kite, the falcon, and the kite in their kinds, 14 and every raven in its kind, 15 and the ostrich, the owl, the sea gull, and the hawk in their kinds, 16 the swan, the great owl, the white owl, 17 the pelican, the carrion vulture, the cormorant, 18 the stork, and the heron in their kinds, and the hoopoe and the bat. 19 »And all the teeming life with wings is unclean to you. Do not eat them. 20 »You may eat any clean bird. 21 »Do not eat anything that dies by itself. You may give it to the alien who is in your town, so that he may eat it. You may sell it to a foreigner, for you are a holy people to Jehovah your God. Do not boil a young goat in its mother's milk. 22 »You shall surely tithe all the produce from what you sow, which comes out of the field every year. 23 »You shall eat in the presence of Jehovah your God, at the place where He chooses to establish his name, the tithe of your grain, your new wine, your oil, and the firstborn of your herd and your flock, so that you may learn to respect Jehovah your God always. 24 »The place Jehovah your God will choose to put his name may be too far away. He may bless you with so much that you cannot carry the tithe of your income that far. 25 »If so, exchange the tenth part of your income for silver. Take the silver with you, and go to the place Jehovah your God will choose. 26 Use the silver to buy whatever you want: cattle, sheep, goats, wine, liquor-whatever you choose. Then you and your family will eat and enjoy yourselves there in the presence of Jehovah your God. 27 »Do not neglect the Levites who live in your towns. They have no property of their own. 28 »At the end of every third year bring the tithe of all your crops and store it in your towns. 29 »This food is for the Levites, since they own no property, and for the foreigners, orphans, and widows who live in your towns. They are to come and get all they need. Do this, and Jehovah your God will bless you in everything you do.

Mark 7:19

19 »It is because it does not go into his heart, but into his stomach and is eliminated? All foods are clean.

Romans 14:1-23

1 Accept the man who has a weak faith, but not to entertain doubtful thinking. 2 For one believes that he may eat all things. Another who is weak eats only vegetables. 3 Let the one eating not look down on the one not eating. Let the one who does not eat judge him that eats, for God has received him. 4 Who are you to judge another man’s servant? He stands or falls before his own master. Yes, he will be made to stand for God can make him stand. 5 One person judges one day above another. Another person judges every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. 6 He who regards the day regards it to God and he who does not regard the day does not regard it to God. He, who eats, eats to God, for he gives God thanks. He who does not eat does not eat to God and he gives God thanks. 7 For none of us lives to himself, and no man dies to himself. 8 For if we live, we live to God and if we die, we die to God. Therefore should we live or die, we are God’s. 9 To this end Christ both died, and rose, and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and the living. 10 Why do you judge your brother? Why do you look down on your brother with contempt? We will all stand before the judgment seat of God (Theos). 11 It is written: As I live, says Jehovah, every knee will bow to me, and every tongue will acknowledge (confess to) Jehovah. (Isaiah 45:23) 12 So then every one of us will give account of himself to God. 13 Let us not judge one another any more. Let no man put a stumbling block or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way. 14 I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean in itself. If someone thinks something is unclean it is unclean to him. 15 If because of your food your brother is grieved, you do not walk in love. Do not allow what you eat to destroy the one for whom Christ died. 16 Do not let the good you do be spoken of as evil. 17 For the kingdom of God is not food and drink; but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18 For he that serves Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of by men. 19 Let us follow after the things that make for peace, and things that are encouraging to one another. 20 Do not tear down the work of God for the sake of food. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eats with offense. 21 It is good neither to eat food, nor to drink wine, nor any thing that causes your brother to stumble or be offended and weakened. 22 Do you have faith? Have it for yourself before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in that thing that he allows. 23 He that doubts is damned if he eats, because he eats not by faith. Whatever is not by faith is sin!

Acts 10:1-48

1 There was a man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the Italian Band. 2 He was a devout man who respected God with his entire household. He gave many gifts of mercy to the people and prayed to God always. 3 About the ninth hour of the day he clearly saw a vision. An angel of God came to him and said, »Cornelius.« 4 He looked at him and was afraid. »What is it, Lord?« He replied. The angel said: »God hears your prayers and sees your gifts of mercy. 5 »Send men to Joppa to bring back Simon, whose surname is Peter: 6 »He is staying with a tanner named Simon whose house is by the sea.« 7 When the angel who spoke to Cornelius left, he called two of his household servants and a devout soldier who was his attendant. 8 He told them what happened and sent them to Joppa. 9 The next day they journeyed to the city. As they drew near, Peter went to the housetop to pray. It was about the sixth hour. 10 He became very hungry. While the meal was being prepared he fell into a trance. 11 He saw heaven opened, something like a great sheet lowered by the four corners was descending to the earth. 12 In it were all kinds of animals, reptiles and birds. 13 Peter heard a voice say: »Kill and eat.« 14 But Peter said: »No Lord for I have never eaten any thing that is defiled or unclean.« 15 The voice spoke to him again the second time: »You stop calling defiled that which God has cleansed.« 16 This happened a third time and immediately the sheet was taken up to heaven. 17 While Peter doubted in himself what this vision ment, behold, the men who were sent from Cornelius inquired for Simon’s house, and stood at the gate. 18 They called out and asked if Simon surnamed Peter lived there. 19 While Peter thought about the vision, the Spirit said to him: »Behold, three men seek you. 20 »Stand up and go down to greet them. Do not doubt for I have sent them. 21 Then Peter went down to the men who were sent to him from Cornelius. He said: »I am the one you are looking for. Why did you come?« 22 They said: »We come from Cornelius the centurion, a righteous man who respects God. He has a good reputation among all the nation of the Jews. A holy angel told him to have you come to his house so he could hear what you have to say.« 23 He invited them in to be his guests. The next day Peter went away with them. Brothers accompanied them from Joppa. 24 The day after that they entered Caesarea. Cornelius expected them so he called his relatives and close friends to join him. 25 Cornelius met Peter and fell down at his feet with adoration for him. 26 »Stand up,« Peter said, as he lifted him up, »I am also a man.« 27 He talked with him and went in to find many people gathered. 28 He said to them: »You know that it is an unlawful thing for a man who is a Jew to keep company, or approach someone of another nation. But God revealed to me that I should not call any man defiled or unclean. 29 »Therefore I came to you without objection, as soon as I was sent for. I ask therefore for what intent you sent for me?« 30 Cornelius replied, »Four days ago I was praying at this hour. It was the ninth hour and I prayed in my house. A man dressed in bright clothing stood before me. 31 »He said, ‘Cornelius, your prayer is heard and your gifts of mercy are noticed in the sight of God. 32 ‘»Send to Joppa, and call Simon, whose surname is Peter. He lives in the house of the tanner named Simon by the sea. When he comes he will speak with you.’ 33 »Immediately I sent for you. You have done well for you have come. We are all present before God, to hear all things that are commanded to you from God.« 34 Peter opened his mouth, and said, »I truly perceive that God shows no partiality. 35 »In every nation he accepts every person who respects him and does what is right. 36 »You know the Word of God was sent to the children of Israel. He (Jehovah God) presented peace through the anointed Lord (or Master) of all, Jesus Christ. (Acts 2:36) (Jesus identified his father, Jehovah God, as Lord of all heaven and earth at Matthew 11:25) 37 »You know that message which began in Galilee and was published throughout all Judea, after the baptism that John preached. 38 God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Jesus went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil. God was with him. 39 »We are witnesses of all things that he did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a stake. 40 »God raised him up the third day and made him visible. 41 »However, all the people did not see him. Witnesses who were previously chosen by God saw him. We who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead saw him. 42 »He commanded us to preach to the people. We testify that he was ordained by God to be the Judge of the living and the dead. 43 »All the prophets testify that through his name whoever believes in him will receive forgiveness of sins.« 44 Holy Spirit descended on all who heard the message Peter spoke. 45 Those circumcised believers who came with Peter were amazed that the gift of Holy Spirit was also poured out on the people of the nations. 46 They heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then Peter responded: 47 »Can any man keep these people from being baptized with water? They have received the Holy Spirit as we have.« 48 He ordered them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to stay for a few days.
