Hebrew Voices #131 – Are there 613 Commandments

In this episode of Hebrew Voices, Are there 613 Commandments, Bible Scholar Nehemia Gordon talks with the late Don Harris about whether you can leave your home on Shabbat, the Greek foundation of Gematria, and what it means not to boil a kid in its mother’s milk.

I look forward to reading your comments!

  • Torah Keeper says:

    The Word of Yehovah is eternal, as well as Yehovah/Yeshua (same). It existed before Adam and Eve. I believe Noah would have never eaten pig meat. I also believe the feasts were in place as well as Sabbath. No oral law because it does not come from Elohim.

  • Debbie says:

    My question is: if Noah ate swine, why did YHVH tell him the difference in clean and unclean animals? And it seems he knew what to do with clean animals? Thank you.

  • Pam Harris says:

    I enjoyed reviewing the 613 program. Since I was monitoring the chat room during the original show, I missed a lot. Hope all is well with you, Nehemia. Pam Harris

    Noah would NOT have Eaten Foods which YEHOVAH Declared UNCLEAN!
    Noah was found to be Righteous by YEHOVAH!
    **(Genesis 7:1) YEHOVAH said to Noah, “Come with all of your household into the ship, for I have seen Your RIGHTEOUSNESS before Me in this generation.

    The Knowledge is well Documented that YEHOVAH Distinguished between the CLEAN and UNCLEAN Animals Before the Flood, and this Knowledge has continued unto this very day.
    **(Genesis 7:1-3) [1] YEHOVAH said to Noah, “Come with all of your household into the ship, for I have seen Your RIGHTEOUSNESS before Me in this generation. [2] You shall take Seven Pairs of every CLEAN Animal with you, the Male and his Female. Of the Animals that are NOT CLEAN, take Two, the Male and his Female. [3] Also of the Birds of the sky, Seven and Seven, Male and Female, to keep seed alive on the surface of all the Earth.

    No Passage Exists in the Torah that states that Noah ate UNCLEAN Pig Flesh!
    Noah did not Offer UNCLEAN Animals or UNCLEAN Birds to YEHOVAH!
    **(Genesis 8:20) Noah built an altar to YEHOVAH, and took of every CLEAN Animal, and of every CLEAN Bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
    **(Leviticus 11:1-47) YEHOVAH Instructs the Children of Israel about the “Clean Food” (Acceptable as Food) and the “Unclean Food” (Unacceptable as Food)!

    Missing Don C Harris like crazy. Thank you so much for your honoring his contribution to us all. Your insights are so clear and helpful, as always..

  • Marlon says:

    Noah did know the difference between the clean and unclean animals as he was packing the ark. So wouldn’t it be unnatural for him to eat pig meat?

    • JW says:

      Not only did Noah know the difference between clean and unclean animals, the Book of Hebrews (King James,) refers to Noah as a Preacher of Righteousness.

      Being such, I agree, it is doubtful that could Noah have eaten pig’s flesh. Especially considering Isaiah’s prophecy at 66:17. Note the American Standard and English Standard states that they will all come to an end together.

      Also note Eze 44:23 and Lev 10:10. If Noah ate pig, then he would have been ceremonially unclean, maybe even been unholy, at least until after bathing and til after sunset.

      Then would not Noah been a hypocrite trying to preach righteousness? I agree with you Marlon.

    This was excellent- thank you! By the way, I am going to do some research on those Russian Sabbatniks(?) you mentioned, but if you have any other information, I would love to hear it!! What I was thinking, if when things really get tough in this world, and there may be even more of a need for Jews to leave their countries of exile and return to Israel, those of us believers in Yehoshua who are Written Torah observant (Sabbath and otherwise), might possibly be accepted into the Land of Israel too!
