The Torah commands us three times (Exodus 23:19, Exodus 34:26 and Deuteronomy 14:21) 
not to cook a kid in its mother's milk.

Mishna Hullin 8:1 says:
EVERY KIND OF FLESH IS FORBIDDEN TO BE COOKED IN MILK,
EXCEPTING THE FLESH OF FISH AND OF LOCUSTS; \
AND IT IS ALSO FORBIDDEN TO PLACE UPON THE TABLE [FLESH] WITH CHEESE,
EXCEPTING THE FLESH OF FISH AND OF LOCUSTS.
IF A PERSON VOWED TO ABSTAIN FROM FLESH.
HE MAY PARTAKE OF THE FLESH OF FISH AND OF LOCUSTS.

The Gemara (b.Hullin 104a-104b)

GEMARA. It follows [from our Mishnah] that the flesh of fowls is prohibited by the law of the Torah;2 now in accordance with whose view would this be? It surely is not in accordance with R. Akiba's view, for R. Akiba maintains that the flesh of wild animals and of fowls is not prohibited by the law of the Torah. Consider now the final clause: IF A PERSON VOWED TO ABSTAIN FROM FLESH, HE MAY PARTAKE OF THE FLESH OF FISH AND OF LOCUSTS. It follows however that he is forbidden the flesh of fowl, which is in accordance with R. Akiba's view, namely, that any variation concerning which the agent would ask for special instructions is deemed to be of the same species.3 For we have learnt:4 If a person vowed to abstain from vegetables, he is permitted gourds; R. Akiba forbids them. They said to R. Akiba: Is it not a fact that when a man says to his agent. ‘Bring me vegetables’, the other might [come back and] say. ‘I can only obtain gourds’?5 He replied. Exactly so; for he surely would not come back and say. ‘I can only obtain pulse’.6 This proves that gourds are included among vegetables and pulse is not included among vegetables. [Must it then be that] the first clause of our Mishnah is in accordance with the view of the Rabbis, and the second clause is in accordance with R. Akiba's view? — R. Joseph said: The author [of our Mishnah] is Rabbi who incorporated the views of various Tannaim: with regard to vows he adopted the view of R. Akiba, and with regard to flesh [cooked] in milk he adopted the view of the Rabbis. R. Ashi said: The whole of our Mishnah is in accordance with R. Akiba's view, for this is what it means, EVERY KIND OF FLESH IS FORBIDDEN TO BE COOKED IN MILK: some7 being forbidden by the law of the Torah and others8 by the enactment of the Scribes, EXCEPTING THE FLESH OF FISH AND OF LOCUSTS, which are neither prohibited by the law of the Torah nor by the enactment of the Scribes.9 AND IT IS ALSO FORBIDDEN TO PLACE etc. R. Joseph said: You can infer from this that the flesh of fowl [cooked] in milk is prohibited by the law of the Torah, for were it only [prohibited by the enactment] of the Rabbis, seeing that the actual eating thereof is [prohibited only as] a precautionary measure, would we forbid the placing [of them together upon the table] as a safeguard against the eating thereof?10 And whence do you derive the rule that we do not impose a precautionary measure upon a precautionary measure? — From the following [Mishnah] which we have learnt:11 The dough-offering12 [of produce grown] outside the Land [of Israel]
may be eaten [by a priest] in company with a non-priest at the table,1 and may be given to any priest one likes.2 Said Abaye to him, I grant you, if we were told that the dough-offering [of produce grown] outside the Land [may be eaten] in the Land3 [in company with a non-priest at the table], in which case there would be good cause to enact a precautionary measure on account of the dough-offering [of produce grown] in the Land which is ordained by the Torah, and yet we do not take this precaution, that the inference can be made. But outside the Land of Israel [it is allowed] surely because there is no reason to take any precautionary measure.4 In the case [of our Mishnah], however, if you permit one to place [upon the table] fowl and cheese, one might even place [upon the table] flesh and cheese, and so come to eat flesh with milk which is prohibited by the law of the Torah.5

R. Shesheth demurred saying: Yet after all6 it is but cold [food] with cold [food]! — Abaye answered: It is prohibited lest it be placed upon the table in a boiling pot. But even In that case it is only in a ‘second vessel’7 and a second vessel cannot bring anything to the boil! — It is only prohibited lest it be placed upon the table in the ‘first vessel’.8

Acts 17:30
And the times of this ignorance YHWH winked at; but now commands all men every where to repent:

{2 Timotheos 2:15}
Diligently make every effort to study thine own self,

acceptable - being ready at hand - in order to assist Elohim,

a teacher that needs not to be ashamed,

preaching correctly the Word; the Truth.

Gen 18:8 [JPS Tanakh 1917]
And he (Moshay) took curd, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.

All the Torah said was not to boil a kid in its mother's milk. It did not give any prohibition about putting the two on the table and eating of them in other manners, period.

The rabbis are ignorant on this and should not be followed, period!

TWO APPROACHES IN UNDERSTANDING SCRIPTURE

FIRST:    We go to the Writings with an open, unbiased attitude, free of denominational slants or teachings, or previous impressions.   This is called Exegesis (direct analysis or interpretation of Scripture).  Allowing the Word to directly speak to us, we can form a solid foundation through personal study, guided by our Teacher, the Spirit of YHWH.   Listening to other men teach us what Scripture says is fine also, as long as we test everything we hear, being careful how we listen, as the Assembly at Berea did (Acts 17:10,11).

SECOND:   (the wrong approach)  -- We go to the Writings to prove something we already believe, finding sentences which hint at the idea.  This is called Eisegesis (analyzing from one's own ideas).  In these cases the text is not directly describing or teaching the concept we are trying to prove, but rather the words are extracted  and hunted-down, to "prove" what we believe.  This is how men "twist" or "spin" the Words of Scripture, especially the letters of Shaul (Paul):  ". . . as also our beloved brother Shaul wrote to you, according to the wisdom given to him, as also in all his letters, speaking in them concerning these matters, in which some are hard to understand, which those who are untaught and unstable TWIST (spin) to their own destruction, as they do also the other Scriptures.   You, then, beloved ones, being forewarned, watch; lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the delusion of the lawless."   -  2 Kafe [Peter] 3:15-17   

 

 

When a man or woman is honestly mistaken and hears the truth,

they will either quit being mistaken, or they will cease to be honest.

Chose you this day Whom you will follow!

And remember:

Wisdom Never Lies Inked To The Pages Coddled By A Book

But Rather At Rest Supply About The Inside Of Open Minds

That Render The Confounds Thereof.

 

Seek And Ye Shall Find

Yea Unto Therefore

                               Read The Word of YHWH Ore And Ore ... Extolling Ever Again

                                                                         To Thine Be The Glory

                                                                     Hallelu-Yahu …Awmane [Strong’s #H543]
