Treasury of Scripture

And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.

Rise.

Acts 10:10
And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance,

Jeremiah 35:2-5

In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat…

kill.









(13) Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.--In the symbolism of the vision the natural promptings of appetite were confirmed by the divine voice. That which resisted both was the scruple of a hesitating conscience, not yet emancipated from its bondage to a ceremonial and therefore transitory law. It is natural to infer that the spiritual yearnings of Peter's soul were, in like manner, hungering and thirsting after a wider fellowship which should embrace "all manner" of the races that make up mankind, while, on the other hand, he was as yet waiting to be taught that the distinction between Jew and Gentile was done away in Christ.
