Old and New

Triumphal Feast returns with a message in our ongoing study "More About Jesus." Recorded in the three synoptic gospels is this account where the Pharisees and some of John's disciples come questioning the disciples of Jesus. The Pharisees has a tradition of scheduled days of fasting that Jesus' disciples did not observe. Rather than fasting, they were feasting! Jesus uses a series of parables to explain why His disciples should be feasting rather than fasting. The conclusion is – you cannot mix old traditions with new revelation. The bridegroom is here so why should we return to old practices? -- February 23, 2015
