What is the milk and meat of the Bible?
Answer: In two separate Bible books written by Paul, 1Corinthians and Hebrews, he contrasts "milk" and "meat" in order to make a spiritual analogy. When addressing the Corinthian church Paul wrote the following. And, I, brethren, was not able to speak to you as to those who are spiritual, but as to those who are carnal - even as to babes in Christ. I gave you milk to drink, and not meat; for you were not yet able to receive spiritual meat; and neither are you able now, for you are still carnal. For since envy and contention and divisions are among you, are you not carnal? The word "milk" in the above quote Greek gala , Strong's Concordance G means the basic, elemental teachings of true Christianity first learned by new believers. The word "meat" comes from the Greek word Broma Strong's G and means the more solid, complete and deeper spiritual doctrines of the Gospel.
It does not. However, there are some who believe and teach that certain Scriptures prohibit such a practice. The identical prohibition is repeated in Exodus We also find the following prohibition in Deuteronomy In the term kid the calf and lamb are included since it denotes any young animal… The prohibition occurs three times… to signify that the eating, cooking and deriving any benefit whatever from a mixture of milk and meat are forbidden.

Through it all, he has been trying to fix our attention on Yeshua, our great high priest after the order of Melchizedek, our Messiah, our King who is in every way superior to anyone and anything else. It has been so good! Please teach me more! I want to learn more! I want someone to teach me, so I can grow and grow and grow! We do have a lot of teachers in our world at this moment.
I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for till now you were not able to bear it, neither yet now are you able. Hebrews For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat…. John I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Hebrews ,12 Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing…. New International Version I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready.
This dietary law, basic to kashrut , is based on two verses in the Book of Exodus , which forbid "boiling a kid goat in its mother's milk"   and a third repetition of this prohibition in Deuteronomy. According to the Talmud , these three almost identical references are the basis for three distinct dietary laws: . There are three categories of Kosher food — Meat, Dairy and Parev. The rabbis of the Talmud gave no reason for the prohibition,   but later authorities, such as Maimonides , opined that the law was connected to a prohibition of Idolatry in Judaism. The biblical suppression of these practices was seen by some rabbinic commentators as having an ethical aspect.
