Based on Peter’s vision, isn’t pork now clean to eat?

Based on Peter’s vision, isn’t pork now clean to eat?

 

Contrary to popular opinion, Peter’s vision in Acts 10 has nothing to do with clean foods. The lesson behind this parable involved the separation between Jew and gentile. Peter later explained that Yahweh showed him that he was not to call any man common or unclean. We further explain in the Restoration Study Bible: “Peter’s vision is a lesson about accepting repentant gentiles into the Body of Messiah as those grafted into the promise of Israel (Rom. 9:17-24). This was a major change as gentiles were considered unclean by the Jews. The meaning and purpose of this vision is explained by Peter himself in verse 28, ‘but Elohim hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.’ Peter admits to learning the object lesson in vv. 34-35, having had a personal problem with discrimination (Gal 2:11). The passage is not about eating unclean food, which would have been a violation of the Law of Yahweh,” note on Acts 10:9.

That’s correct. By Peter’s admission in Acts10:14, he was still keeping the dietary law even as at this point. ” But Kepha said, Not so, Master; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean” This vision was given some years after Yahshua had gone back to heaven. While the vision was not about food, It is also clear the apostles kept the dietary law, so we should.

Rubbish only the Jews who don’t believe Jesus is God’s son keep the 613 mosaic laws, well saying that they can’t keep them .hence Jesus Christ was the end of the mosaic law , he payed for our sins with his death on a cross. The Aposiles did not teach the. Mosaic law , they started Christian churches Example the churches in rev Ephesus, Smyrna, pergamous , Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea, the Jewish people rejected Jesus Christ . There are messianic Jews who do believe in Jesus Christ do they live under the mosaic laws No because no one… Read more »

In 1 Tim 4 v 3 it says talking about the last days .
They will prohibite marriage , and require abstinence from certain foods which God created to be received with Thanksgiving
By those who believe and who know the truth .

God’s word is truth John 17 v 17

It’s as clear as can possibly be .are we to believe God or a man? I would say God as John says sanctify them by your word your word is truth
