Christ over Traditionalism (Mark 2:18-22)

Tony FelichTony Felich, March 13, 2011
Part of the Exposition of The Gospel of Mark series, preached at a Morning Worship service

Christ, by His Presence and teaching, shed the light of truth on old ways (traditions) for the purpose of calling people to Himself.

I. Why were John’s disciples and the Pharisees fasting?
II. Why didn’t Jesus fast in this instance?
III. How should the light of Christ be shined on tradition?

Mark 2:18-22

18 Now John’s disciples and the Pharisees were fasting. And people came and said to him, “Why do John’s disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?” 19 And Jesus said to them, “Can the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. 20 The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast in that day. 21 No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. If he does, the patch tears away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear is made. 22 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the wine will burst the skins—and the wine is destroyed, and so are the skins. But new wine is for fresh wineskins.” (ESV)
