    On Verse 36-39, The New garment or wine there is the Word of God and the Old garment or bottle is the Tradition, tradition is the thing ussually the elder do, the thing that they do because what others what their ancestors told them to do. and in this verses Jesus ask us Why we are living in this world doing the thing that others did. Why we are living everyday doing what our ancestors told us to do. Jesus Taught us to rely to believe and to live only into the Word of God, Jesus taught us to do only what the Word of God says, not what other people says. just always Remember this verse...Romans 12:2, And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

    Hi Annie verse 10 Jesus was letting Simon know that he was going to use him to catch men by showing them the way to truth that their souls may be saved. In Matthew 16: 18-19 Jesus told Peter which is Simon Peter that he was giving him the keys to the kingdom of heaven and as you read following Peter he told in Acts 2:36-47 what must we do to be saved and this is the key Jesus gave him which is true for all of us today until the end. Just keep reading, praying and seeking God for understanding . God Bless
