In recent years, a couple of well-known Christian spokesmen have taught that Christians should keep the “Mosaic dietary laws.” The Bill Gothard Institute and R. J. Rushdoony’s Chalcedon movement have taught that God designed these dietary laws as rules of health. Other Christians have picked up this idea, and it has become widespread. There is, however, no Biblical foundation for this teaching. The Bible makes it clear that from Noah to Moses, believers were free to eat any kind of animal meat they chose. A careful study of the Mosaic dietary laws shows that they were given for sacramental and symbolic reasons, not for reasons of health. James B. Jordan has studied this question intensively for several years. Here he presents the fruit of the research that went into his 500-page Studies in Food and Faith. He shows that eating pork is a sign that the gospel has gone to all the world.
