Bible Study Lesson – January 20, 2021 ~ 7:30 pm
Lesson 1: New Cloth + New Wineskins (Mark 2:18-22)
- The Pharisees were big on procedures. Did that align with Jesus’ mission?
- What were some of the problems that compelled Jesus to recite the parables of the Cloth and Wineskins?
- Why is fasting important?
- Why is it important to be open to new things?
These passages are set during Jesus’ ministry in Galilee, the region where he grew up. The Pharisees, who asked the question that leads to him telling these parables, were big on procedure, particularly when it came to the laws in Exodus to Deuteronomy. As you review this lesson, make sure you use the steps to interpret the parable: Passage, Parameters, Problem, Progression, Presentation, Point, Program, and Particulars.
