Bible: Luke 5:33-39

The Superiority of the New

5:33 Then 1  they said to him, “John’s 2  disciples frequently fast 3  and pray, 4  and so do the disciples of the Pharisees, 5  but yours continue to eat and drink.” 6  5:34 So 7  Jesus said to them, “You cannot make the wedding guests 8  fast while the bridegroom 9  is with them, can you? 10  5:35 But those days are coming, and when the bridegroom is taken from them, 11  at that time 12  they will fast.” 5:36 He also told them a parable: 13  “No one tears a patch from a new garment and sews 14  it on an old garment. If he does, he will have torn 15  the new, and the piece from the new will not match the old. 16  5:37 And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. 17  If he does, the new wine will burst the skins and will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. 5:38 Instead new wine must be poured into new wineskins. 18  5:39 19  No 20  one after drinking old wine wants the new, for he says, ‘The old is good enough.’ 21
