The only four Jewish traditions Gentile Christian are required to observe.

The Apostles stated that there were only four Jewish traditions that Gentile Christian were required to observe, namely, ?abstain from what has been sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from what has been strangled, and from sexual immorality?

As found in verses 20 and 29 below, which are shown in their context with other verses in Acts Chapter 15.

Act 15:5 But some believers who belonged to the party of the Pharisees rose up and said, "It is necessary to circumcise them and to order them to keep the law of Moses." 

Act 15:10 Now, therefore, why are you putting God to the test by placing a yoke on the neck of the disciples that neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear? 

Act 15:19 Therefore my judgment is that we should not trouble those of the Gentiles who turn to God, 
Act 15:20 but should write to them to abstain from the things polluted by idols, and from sexual immorality, and from what has been strangled, and from blood. 

Act 15:28 For it has seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay on you no greater burden than these requirements: 
Act 15:29 that you abstain from what has been sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from what has been strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell." 

The answer to verse 5 above is found at,

1Cr 7:19 For neither circumcision counts for anything nor uncircumcision, but keeping the commandments of God.

Gal 2:3 But even Titus, who was with me, was not forced to be circumcised, though he was a Greek.

Gal 5:6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love.

Gal 6:15 For neither circumcision counts for anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation.

Col 2:11 In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ,

Act 16:3 Paul wanted Timothy to accompany him, and he took him and circumcised him because of the Jews who were in those places, for they all knew that his father was a Greek.

Rom 3:30 since God is one--who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith.

Every blessing.

Edwin.
