Conflicts with Old Traditions
This morning, Pastor Richard Sim preached on the above subject. Basically, he showed that when Jesus taught about new things, the Jewish people could not understand, or in fact Pharisees were angry with His teachings. His teachings conflict with the old traditions.
A verse he used "And no one pours new wine into old wineskin. If he does, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskin will be ruined. No, he pours new wine into new wineskins". Mark 2:22
What it means is that the people needed a new mind set to absorb the new teaching. The old mind "old wineskin" just could not contain the new ideas. They also have to break from old traditions and not be too legalistic in what they are doing. They are to love their neighbors as themselves Luke 10:27.
