Leviticus Chapter 11 3 - Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is wholly cloven-footed, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that may ye eat.
Deuteronomy Chapter 14 6 - And every beast that parteth the hoof, and hath the hoof wholly cloven in two, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that
ye may eat.
Jeremiah 31 30 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah;
Mishneh Torah 172 - To obey every prophet in each generation provided he neither adds to nor takes away from the Torah, as it is written "unto him
ye shall hearken" (Deuteronomy 18,15).
Matt 15:11 "Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man."
NT Jesus said the unlcean meats would not defile us, but the OT says that any prophet who changes or adds to the existing commandments should not be
followed. But in Jeremiah 31 30 it says God will give us a new covenant.
But this means a new covenant should not be accepted according to the traditional view, as it is forbidden according to the OT, even though it states
a new covenant will be made according to the OT.
So how can anyone fullfill this prophecy from Jeremiah? Who can give man a new covenant and break the OT law but yet be accepted? It's a paradox, but
yet significant since a new covenant was prophecized in the OT too. I provided the scriptures from the OT so you can read it yourself and find
alternative books with the texts, and these aren't parabels.
So, did mankind ever recieve a new covenant that we missed? Or is this for a time still to come?
