The Jews, descendants of Israel, is what is meant by “Children of Israel”.
Acts 9:15-16 (KJV)
15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before …


This post is in response to a question from An Abomination.  I’m sure it is many more verses and covers much more than the question asked, but I have run across so many questions lately about unclean and clean foods and the believers duty in relation to them.  So warning this is verbose, …
