Forbidden Fruit…The Orlah Prohibition

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Biblical Diet

Did you know that trees can be uncircumcised, and that we are not to partake of an uncircumcised tree? This prohibition is written in the book of Leviticus. We recently were asked how to apply this commandment in our lives. We are also planning to plant some fruit trees in future, so we need to learn how to care for them and when we can start eating their fruit.

For these reasons, we want to explore what this means and how to apply this commandment in our lives. Please join us as we learn about this.

What is the scriptural standard with regards to eating? How are we to understand these instructions and what is the physical and spiritual significance when we obey? Keeping these dietary instructions is commonly referred to as keeping kosher. The word “kosher” or “kasher” means proper, pure or acceptable. If we say we eat “kosher” we eat what is permissible in accordance with dietary instructions in Scripture.
