Octopus is lovely if and only if it is really fresh... cuttlefish and squid last much longer.

Thank you for the correction, my friend. That was offal nice of you. x

I'm sure octopus is delectable, but it's just psychosomatic with me I suppose. And squid is rather tasteless - much like a rubberband.

Don't believe I've ever had cuttlefish; I'll have to try that. Thanks, again.

Remember when the Lord multiplied the loaves and fish?
John 6:12 So when they were filled, He said to His disciples,
"Gather up the fragments that remain, so that nothing is lost."
The Lord was not willing to waste food. Quite obviously, the Lord did not consider pigs to be food if he let them jump off of a cliff.
Mar 5:12-13 So all the demons begged Him, saying, "Send us to the swine, that we may enter them." And at once Jesus gave them permission....
Also, respectfully, there is more than one perspective to the account of the loaves of bread and fish miracles. One of them being that this is a spiritual analogy of the Kingdom of God. Think about it.

Good morning. About the quote on the bottom of your statement. This statement was not about clean and unclean animals. This was about the washing of hands before eating. The Sadduces and Pharices even to this day have a ritualistic way they wash before a meal as a part of their tradition.

Then some Pharisees and teachers of the law came to Jesus from Jerusalem and asked, 2 “Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They don’t wash their hands before they eat!”

3 Jesus replied,“And why do you break the command of God for the sake of your tradition? 4 For God said,‘Honor your father and your mother’ and ‘Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death.’ 5 But you say that if a man says to his father and mother,‘Whatever help you might otherwise have received from me is a gift devoted to God,’ 6 he is not to ‘honor his father’ with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition. 7 You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you:
8 ‘These people honor me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from me.
9 They worship me in vain;
their teachings are but rules taught by men’.”

10 Jesus called the crowd to him and said,“Listen and understand. 11 What goes into a man’s mouth does not make him ‘unclean,’ but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him ‘unclean’.”

Messiah was clearly All About Honoring the Command of His and Our Father. Judge for yourself.

Take Care,

<quoted text>Pork is a good sourse of many of the B complex vitamins particularly B1 so it can have some benefits.
The idea that pork is unclean and beef is clean is not really relevant today as pigs are usually fed with pretty good quality scraps (UK health and safety rules) so no longer scavenge as they would have done in OT times. Beef, whislt then considered clean, is now so pumped with chemicals, antibiotics and hormones that it can be a health risk as much as anything else in the food chain.
IMO the best meat source is organic but that can be too expensive for a lot of people.
From a scriptural point of view I think Jesus negated the need to worry too much about clean and unclean food laws in Matt 15.11
when he said " Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man, but what comes outs of the mouth this defiles a man".
In other words it is what we say that is either clean or unclean and not what we eat.

Dont waste your time trying to explain. I have went verse by verse in Mark 7, Matt 15, Rom 14, Col 2, Acts 10 showing that it doesnt say to eat what you want and was called all sorts of names and attacked when I told people to read everyone of those chapters in their entire context.
