    New wine bursts wine skins.That doesn't happen with bottles. What happened to the original wine skins.

    Joe ... The Word of God does not come out and say who these people are. Matthew, James and Judas Lebbaeus Thaddaeus are the sons of Alphaeus. Mark 2:14, Matthew 10:3 James and Judas are also The Lord s brothers. How can this be? These can only be both Jesus brothers and the sons of Alphaeus IF Mary married Alphaeus, who is Cleophas, which Mary DID! John 19:25
  • Joe
    Ann - I read John 19:25 by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. as being 3 women Jesus's mother named Mary, his mother's sister also named Mary, and Mary Magdalena. The wife of Cleophas is Jesus's aunt not Jesus's mother.
  • Ann Hering
    Joe-There are 2 Mary s Mary and Mary called Magdalene, or Madeline. Mary was the wife of Cleophas and Mary Magdalene was Mary s sister. Mark 15:40, 15:47 tells the identity of the 2 Mary s.
  • Randall
    It's possible because there can be more than one person named Judas or Thadeus. Do you not know many people named George? There is also another person in the Bible named Jesus. Look it up. Just because there is one instance of a person named Judas doesn't mean every person named Judas is the same person.
  • Ann Hering
    Randall... The point... Jesus chose his brothers to be his apostles. Cleophas and Alphaeus are the same person: Mary the wife of Cleophas or Alphaeus, was the mother of James, Simon and Thaddeus, and Joseph. Matthew 13:55 ... and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?
  • Joe
    You may be correct, BUT please provide chapter and verse to support your points. Unless you can show me the scripture: I can only believe the scripture - nothing else.
  • Ann Hering
    James, the Lord s brother, and his brother Judas, and Matthew are all the sons of Alphaeus. Mary, Jesus mother, remarried after Joseph died to Joseph s brother, Alphaeus, according to Leviate marriage when a brother died without a son, it was the brother s duty to marry his brother s wife to provide his brother a heir. The marriage at Cana was the marriage of Mary to Alphaeus Cleopas .
  • Stanjett
    Ann: HUH? No where does it say anything that you are saying.
  • Ann Hering
    Question It states that Levi Matthew is the son of Alphaeus. But in chapter 3, it states James is the son of Alphaeus. Can someone please clear this up? Answer Matthew Levi , James, The Lord s brother, and Judas Thaddeus are ALL the sons of Alphaeus. Mary married Alphaeus Joseph s brother after Joseph died. Jesus half-brothers are the sons of Alphaeus, Matthew, James, and Judas.
  • Frank
    No where does it say Joseph, the husband of Mary died. And if he did, No where does it say that Mary the mother of Jesus remarried. I think you all are getting your Mary's mixed up. The wedding? It does not say who is getting married. You people are changing the words of God. I'll pray for you.
  • Stanjett
    Two different James. James son of Alphaeus and James the son of Zebedee and his brother was John. Tell me where it said that Alphaeus married Mary? There are also two Judas that the bible speaks of. Lots of names the same. Its hard to keep them apart some times. But as far as Mary marring Alphaeus, I can't find it. I can't also find where Joseph Mary's husband died.
  • Ann Hering
    James and John, Zebedee s sons, are always mentioned together. Mary and Jesus brothers sisters travel with Jesus. NO Joseph. John 2:12, Mark 3:31, Mark 6:3. Mary is the wife of Cleophas. John 19:25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. Cleopas KNEW all about Jesus because he married Mary. Luke 24:18, 22, 24, 31
  • Ban Yasharahla
    There are two possibilities either Levi
  • JP
    Tonya Clapp, Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the sons of Alphaeus. The way I see this, All of this men were brothers and there father was Alphaeus. You will notice that the word son in Mark 3 chapter is in italics should read sons not son.
  • Vanessa
    Tonya, most scholars believe they were not brothers , but their fathers had the same name, I don't think anyone is really sure
  • Vanessa
    Most importantly read the whole Book and let the word of God lead your heart God Bless Amen!
  • Tonya Clapp
    It states that Levi (Matthew) is the son of Alphaeus. But in chapter 3, it states James is the son of Alphaeus. Can someone please clear this up?
  • Vanessa
    when we seek the Lords way with all our heart we become anewed in our hearts, as it is said in verse 2:22 you do not put old wine in new bottles, means our old ways should fade away when we become renewed in our body mind and soul, you do not put a patch on new clothes, same as us we do not carry our old ways, we become dead to sin or if we hold on to it then we die in sin. Read Romans 6:2
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 8,9,10, Jesus once again teaches us two of numerous desires of Jehovah /GOD for mankind; 1st forgiveness of sin, 2nd healing of sickness; also SALVATION through the shed BLOOD OF JESUS; though SALVATION appears to be the last desire, it is the #1 desire of GOD for us.
  • Jim
    The religious people seem to be the trouble makers always stirring things up. verses 6,7 and 16.
  • Fred scanlan
    Jesus has the power on earth to forgive sins then proves it . This is a sign given to the world to believe that he will do what he says.What does it mean to have your sins removed and forgiven?If the world denies him as it does, how can its sins be forgiven?How can it ever know what forgiveness is, or know that He will do and keep His promise. His WORD is what cleanses us. A SIMPLE MESSAGE.

    God is the omnipotent,alpha and omega.
  • Edna
    Jesus Christ (God in the flesh) can forgive sins not man And Jesus Christ is Lord over the Sabbath cause He is the Sabbath
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Jesus in action! Healing the sick, showing the doubters that He is the son of God and dining with sinners. In verse 17, He said " I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." So he came to call us to repentance. The world should hearken. Judgement day is fast approaching.
  • Irene123
    " ... and they broke up the roof ... " Notice the colon before this phrase, clause, whatever. A colon in God's always denotes what follows is - important. When one goes to an altar of repentance and is sincere, they will generally literally cry out to God for forgiveness with tears; I did, and still do, at every service - I love Him so much for what He brought me from. cont. --
  • Esther
    Jesus is the great I am. He forgives sins and heals the sick. He loves the willing souls to come to Him. He is Lord of the Sabbath and does not relent on the Sabbath to anyone. He loves the sinners to come to Him for salvation. He is the only living and true God Amen.
  • Irene123
    V.27 - the '7th' day is this AGE of Grace; it's open-ended- so ALL can be saved (but won't). The 7thday will CLOSE at the Rapture - when this day of Grace has ended.
  • A disciple
    For 23-28: When the LORD had Moses appoint Captains and Rulers out of each Tribe, it was to teach us to judge one another, and to rule with justness and compassion, and not seek to bring every offense to God for judgment: for when the matter was brought to God, it was expected that He would judge absolutely. The law was not made for oppressing anyone; but to teach us Christ's character of love.
  • Irene123
    I have seen on here many many refs. to the Sabbath DAY. I've never seen any of them explain vs. 23-27, and all the other scriptures that tell of Jesus 'doing' on the Sabbath. Nor have I seen anyone ask these sabbath day believers to explain these verses of Jesus 'doing' on the Sabbath; all anyone does is argue with them.
