Did Jesus really declare all food clean? : Jan de Beer
This book is the result of intensive research on the question: Did Jesus really declare all food clean? Although it is the common assumption in Christian circles that Jesus (Yeshua) and the New Testament discarded the Biblical laws for eating, the problem arises that such a viewpoint brings the messianic validity of this man from Nazareth into question. The problem is intensified by the fact that most scholars writing about this issue, are not aware of the danger of this kind of interpretation. The author realized that this question should be researched on a proper academic level, and cannot simply be discussed in a popularistic fashion. Therefore the current international academic theological method of interpretation is used to ensure that the research done in this book is not a mere opinion, but can in fact weigh up to current academic standards. At the same time the book is written in non-academic language so that every modern believer can read the research and benefit from it. The overarching goal of the series is to encourage responsible biblical research that can lead to life enrichment through purposeful life change. Meaningful life change can only take place through prayer and guidance from the Spirit of the Almighty. This book encourages such spiritual growth that begins in the heart of each believer, and becomes visible in prophetic and faith based action.
