Is Tuna A Clean Fish According To The Bible

Is Tuna A Clean Fish According To The Bible

The bible is a powerful resource for understanding how to live as a good Christian and what God wants from us. But one question that always comes up when it comes to the bible is: Can I eat tuna? Is tuna a clean fish according to the bible? Well, you’ll be glad to know that this isn’t just an idle question. There’s actually an answer! So let’s get into some specifics here on what exactly makes something clean or not clean according to scripture.

Is Tuna A Clean Fish According To The Bible?

Tuna is not a clean fish, according to the Bible. It is a fish that lives in the sea, and thus cannot be eaten by Christians.

The Bible says in Leviticus 11:9-12 that any water creature with fins and scales can be eaten. Those without fins or scales may not be eaten. Tuna has both fins and scales, so it can be eaten; however it has a very unusual form of locomotion which makes it more like a reptile than other types of fish (like salmon). This means that even though we know tuna to have been created as an animal on day 6 along with all other animals/birds/reptiles/fish etc., this form of locomotion makes them different from other creatures created on day 6 (such as whales) who don’t use their back feet for walking.

Why are some fish clean and some are not?

In the Bible, God gives us a list of all the animals and birds that are good to eat. He calls this list “clean” (kosher) animals. Anything that is not on this list is called an unclean animal or bird. The unclean animals include pigs, rabbits and most reptiles such as lizards, snakes and crocodiles.

Unclean fish are ones that don’t have scales and fins such as catfish or eels; they also include shellfish like oysters, clams and lobsters which have little round shells instead of hard bony exoskeleton like most other fish have!

What is a clean fish?

Clean fish are those that are not considered unclean, prohibited or listed as unclean in the bible. A clean fish is not a term used to describe all fishes but rather a subset of the general category of “fishes”.

What kind of fish can you eat according to the bible?

The Bible states that you can eat any fish that has fins and scales (Leviticus 11:9-12). This means certain kinds of fish are off limits, such as catfish or eels. If a fish has fins but no scales it is also not permitted to eat (Deuteronomy 14:9-10). Finally, if the flesh of a fish smells bad it is unclean (Leviticus 11:10) and should not be eaten.

Now that we’ve covered what kind of fish can be consumed according to the Bible, let’s talk about what types cannot be eaten. If a species does not have either scales or fins then obviously this would make it ineligible as food according to biblical standards since God specifically states that both fins and scales must exist for something to be considered kosher for human consumption

The bible has strong opinions about the type of fish you should eat.

The bible has strong opinions about the type of fish you should eat. In Leviticus 11:9-12, God lists which types of seafood are acceptable to eat and which aren’t.

Here’s what it says:

  • You can eat any kind of fish that has fins and scales (such as tuna)
  • You can’t eat any fish that doesn’t have fins and scales (such as eel)

We hope this article has helped you understand what the bible has to say about eating fish. As always, keep in mind that these are just guidelines for our readers. You can choose to follow them or not, but we think it’s important for everyone to know where their food came from before eating it!
