Bible: Matthew 9:14-17

The Superiority of the New

9:14 Then John’s 1  disciples came to Jesus 2  and asked, “Why do we and the Pharisees 3  fast often, 4  but your disciples don’t fast? 9:15 Jesus said to them, “The wedding guests 5  cannot mourn while the bridegroom 6  is with them, can they? But the days 7  are coming when the bridegroom will be taken from them, 8  and then they will fast. 9:16 No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, because the patch will pull away from the garment and the tear will be worse. 9:17 And no one pours new wine into old wineskins; 9  otherwise the skins burst and the wine is spilled out and the skins are destroyed. Instead they put new wine into new wineskins 10  and both are preserved.”
