Bible: Mark 2:21-28

2:21 No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; otherwise, the patch pulls away from it, the new from the old, and the tear becomes worse. 2:22 And no one pours new wine into old wineskins; 1  otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the skins will be destroyed. Instead new wine is poured into new wineskins.” 2 

Lord of the Sabbath

2:23 Jesus 3  was going through the grain fields on a Sabbath, and his disciples began to pick some heads of wheat 4  as they made their way. 2:24 So 5  the Pharisees 6  said to him, “Look, why are they doing what is against the law on the Sabbath? 2:25 He said to them, “Have you never read what David did when he was in need and he and his companions were hungry 2:26 how he entered the house of God when Abiathar was high priest 7  and ate the sacred bread, 8  which is against the law 9  for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to his companions? 10  2:27 Then 11  he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for people, 12  not people for the Sabbath. 2:28 For this reason the Son of Man is lord 13  even of the Sabbath.”
