June 11, 2019

Jesus never bored people in His teaching. He always refer to objects and situations that are so familiar to them those lived in Judea. Some got convinced, some got converted, some angered or annoyed, bot no one was bored or uninterested.

There was a question: Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but your disciples do not fast? Jesus responded with three illustration to say that you are trapped in your traditions.
1. Illustration of the friends of the bridegroom
2. Illustration of the cloth
3. Illustration of the wine and wineskin
