Q:What does the Bible teach about the eating of meat?

A:The Bible teaches that in the present age all meats are clean for eating purposes. From Adam until Noah, man was purely vegetarian. At the time of Noah (Genesis 9:3) all meats were allowed to be eaten and there were no limitations whatsoever. In fact, Noah was told that anything that moves could be eaten. That never changed for the Gentiles but, with Moses, the Jews were forbidden to eat certain types of meat. While the Mosaic Law was in force, certain meats were forbidden and others were permissible. However, with Messiah’s death the Law came to an end and the Bible teaches that all meats are now clean.
