Discussion for Luke 5

  • Servant of God
    The garment in this parable represents the teaching of Moses and the Prophets, as of how we are clothed in heaven with our righteous acts and knowledge of the Torah. Jesus, the Messiah is meant to repair the threadbare parts but he knows the disputes that lie ahead from the leaders of the Temple. They will be threatened and rouse the people against the Christ. Jesus stay on earth was short.
  • A disciple
    "And he said to them also a likeness; For no man takes a piece from a new cloth, and puts it into an old clothing; else both he breaks the new, and the piece of the new accords not to the old." (Wycliffe Bible) We cannot "accept" Jesus into our old falling apart sin-worn lives. We must be Born From Above, Born Anew, through the Water of Life of the Word, and the Baptism in the Spirit and in Fire.
  • Lu2677
    Bud, Tresspass=sin, offense, immorality, wickedness, abuse, err, unlawful act, slander, etc; whatever the case may be if we do not forgive them for the transgression, iniquity, the Lord will not forgive us. God will have the final say at the judgment seat, so we had better take care of it, before we get there. .Matthew 6:15, Matt. 18:21 "brother sin against me."
  • Bud
    LU2677; Thanks for the reply but to me there is a difference. Sin; transgression of divine law.
    Trespass; in unlawful act causing injury to person, property or rights of another. In Math: he stated forgiveness against a person not GOD.
  • Insight777
    The Pharisees where about to stone a woman to death for the sin of adultery in John chapter 8. Jesus spoke for the woman and convinced the men to forgive her sin and set her free. By Jewish religious law her punishment for breaking the law of "do not commit adultery" was death but they forgave her the sin of adultery. Men can forgive sin but only by God can the dead be raised back to life.
  • Lu2677
    Bud, I don't know what Insight 777 is saying about it but, Matthew 6:14,15, 18:21, talks about men forgiving other men. It is one of his commandments for his children.
