Did Jesus sin when He killed the Pigs?


Did Yeshua/Jesus do away with the law? Did He do away with the dietary instructions? Did he sin when He sent the demons into the pigs?

That is interesting - because scripture states that Yeshua/Jesus was without sin. Yet the herd of pigs belonged to someone and He let the demons go in the pigs and they died. God's law states that if you kill someone else animal, there is a penalty and it must be repaid i.e. its a sin. Consider the following...

Leviticus 24:18 "Whoever kills an animal shall make it good, animal for animal."

We see it again here...

Leviticus 24:21 And whoever kills an animal shall restore it; but whoever kills a man shall be put to death.

So did Yeshua sin when He cast the demons into the pigs? Remember that the law of the Father was given to Hebrews and the foreigners that follow Him (the mixed multitude). We no record of Yeshua restoring the animals that died. Lets look at the gospel record...

Mark 5:12-17

"So all the demons begged Him, saying, “Send us to the swine, that we may enter them.” 13 And at once Jesus[a] gave them permission. Then the unclean spirits went out and entered the swine (there were about two thousand); and the herd ran violently down the steep place into the sea, and drowned in the sea.14 So those who fed the swine fled, and they told it in the city and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that had happened. 15 Then they came to Jesus, and saw the one who had been demon-possessed and had the legion, sitting and clothed and in his right mind. And they were afraid. 16 And those who saw it told them how it happened to him who had been demon-possessed, and about the swine. 17 Then they began to plead with Him to depart from their region."

But yet many still say the dietary instructions have been done away with. So if that is true then we should not see any reference to dietary commandments in our future, like the New Millennium. So what do we see in scripture.

The original commandment...

Deuteronomy 14:8 "Also the swine is unclean for you, because it has cloven hooves, yet does not chew the cud; you shall not eat their flesh or touch their dead carcasses."

We don't see any prophesies about the law being done away with in part or totality - remember that Amos 3:7 states that our Father tells His people via His prophets, which are in the bible. So what do we see...

New Millennium passages...

Isaiah 65:4 "Who sit among the graves, And spend the night in the tombs; Who eat swine’s flesh, And the broth of abominable things is in their vessels;"

Isaiah 66:3 “He who kills a bull is as if he slays a man; He who sacrifices a lamb, as if he breaks a dog’s neck; He who offers a grain offering, as if he offers swine’s blood; He who burns incense, as if he blesses an idol. Just as they have chosen their own ways, And their soul delights in their abominations,"

Isaiah 66:17 “Those who sanctify themselves and purify themselves, To go to the gardens After an idol in the midst, Eating swine’s flesh and the abomination and the mouse, Shall be consumed together,” says the Lord."

So we see in these New Millennial passages that swine and the mouse, which are unclean, are still considered unclean and an abomination before the Father, after the Messiah returns (according to the above scriptures).

This shows that the dietary commands have not been done away with.

So when Yeshua sent the demons into the swine, even though they belonged to someone, it was not a sin, because they were considered an abomination by the Father.

With this being the truth, we need to cast off the doctrines of men and cleave to the doctrine of God.

Something to think about. Perhaps we need to change our doctrine of men to the good doctrine of God.

Shalom.
