Hey! I Never Noticed THAT Before!
I'm doing a talk on Biblical Concepts of Hospitality tomorrow night, and was reading Genesis 18:1-8. After reading verse 8, I realized Abraham was serving dairy and meat together. Lucky for him the Torah had not been handed down yet! Now, according to the story, the Lord was one of the three men visiting Abraham, which means the Lord had meat and dairy together, which would eventually be against the rules. Much later, things evolved to the point where Observant Jews have separate plates for meat and separate plates for dairy and they can't even be kept in the same cupboard, let alone serve meat and dairy at the same time. I wonder what changed the Lord's mind? Oh yeah, it was that popular Cananite dish "Kid Boiled In Its Mother's Milk." Now I understand. As you were.
I See You!
