Epistle of Barnabas
The Epistle of Barnabas is a Greek epistle containing 21 chapters. In no other writing of that early time is the separation of the Gentile Christians from observant Jews so clearly insisted upon. The Epistle explains many Torah laws as having a spiritual lesson as their main purpose. For example:

  • The prohibition against eating pork is intended to forbid the people to live like swine, who supposedly grunt when hungry but are silent when full
  • Likewise, the people are not to pray to God when they are in need but ignore Him when they are satisfied.
  • Similarly, the prohibition against eating rabbit means that the people are not to behave in a promiscuous manner
  • The prohibition against eating weasel is also to be interpreted as a prohibition of oral sex, based on the mistaken belief that weasels copulate via the mouth.


  • Year: 80-120 AD

    IMPORTANT: All Scripture text has context and background. Scripture should never be read literally or in isolation. Always seek clarification from religious scholars and teachers. In general, Scripture adheres to four principles: (1) Literal Meaning - What the Scripture says (2) Historical Setting - The story events; how the Scripture was understood in its time (3) Grammar - The surrounding sentence and paragraph; textual context (4) Synthesis - A comparison with similar Scripture to give a better contextual understanding
