Kosher is distinct from halal, in that Kosher has unecessary (for Christian gentiles) precautions taken in in preparation.
Halal, in contrast, is pagan, and sacrificed to a demon.
While Mathew makes clear that this would not make one “unclean” (in the Jewish sense), Acts and Corinthians makes clear such pagan-sacrificed meat should be avoided.
It’s black-letter, New Testament stuff.
