Food and diet play a major role in the Hebrew Bible, beginning in the Garden of Eden. In this class, we discuss the biblical diets with a focus on the laws of Leviticus chapter eleven and Deuteronomy chapter fourteen. After covering some basic regulations and restrictions, the texts of Leviticus eleven and Deuteronomy fourteen are compared and contrasted in a horizontal study.
