He saw heaven opened1 and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners.
It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles of the earth and birds of the air.
Then a voice told him, "Get up, Peter. Kill and eat."14
"Surely not, Lord!"2 Peter replied. "I have never eaten anything impure or unclean."315
The voice spoke to him a second time, "Do not call anything impure that God has made clean."416
This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven.
