Bible story: The new garment
Creative activities based on the Bible story of The new garment
The Parable of the New Garment and Old Wineskins is a story told by Jesus in Matthew 9:16, Mark 2:21, and Luke 5:36. In this parable, Jesus compares the new teachings of his ministry to new wine and a new garment. Just as new wine needs to be put in new wineskins and a new garment needs to be sewn onto new cloth, the new teachings of Jesus require a new way of thinking and living.
This parable challenges us to examine our own hearts and to be willing to let go of old habits and beliefs in order to embrace the new teachings of Jesus. It emphasizes the importance of being open to change and growth, and being willing to adapt to new circumstances.
