In Luke 5:36-39 we read the following:
36 Then He spoke a parable to them: “No one puts a piece from a new garment on an old one; otherwise the new makes a tear, and also the piece that was taken out of the new does not match the old.
37 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine will burst the wineskins and be spilled, and the wineskins will be ruined.
38 But new wine must be put into new wineskins, and both are preserved.
39 And no one, having drunk old wine, immediately desires new; for he says, ‘The old is better.’
The garment and the wine represent a teaching. Something to learn. Yahshua tells us that the new teachings will not fit upon the old teachings. If we try to take an old teaching and place it upon the new, it will tear. New teaching will expound upon the old and whilst it contains the same truths and is similar to the old, it will not fit upon the old as it is new and contains more information than was there before.
The wine – which is the teaching – cannot be put into the old wineskin, for it shall expand upon the old teaching and shall tear it, in the same manner, which wine expands and damages the old wineskin.
Yahshua also tells us that people do not prefer the new wine, instead, they prefer the old wine. Eventually, however, all wine becomes old and then the older teaching is accepted.
So why even mention this?
The Sabbath day teaching found on this site is not a change from the old. It still contains 6 work days and then the day of rest. Rather it expounds upon the month, which will break the wineskin if the new teaching is placed in it. The Sabbath day understood in terms of the month, then in terms of the year is an expansion of the original. It does not change the six working days nor the seventh-day rest, but rather adds in the new moon days and the 12 months.
This is a fresh way of viewing truth! Thanks, Rob. 🙂
