  • Marke on Mark 2
    Mark 2 - the Sabbath

    21 No man also seweth a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up taketh away from the old, and the rent is made worse.

    22 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles.

    23 And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn.

    24 And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful?

    25 And he said unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they that were with him?

    26 How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him?

    27 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:

    28 Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

    Strict observance of laws and ordinances are not as important to the Lord as seeking and serving God with all your heart. In fact, many detailed Jewish laws do not even pertain to the Church, which is seen by Jesus' reference to not putting new wine into old bottles.
