No One Puts New Wine Into Old Wineskins

Scripture Mark 2:22
[22] And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; if he does, the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost, and so are the skins; but new wine is for fresh skins."

Like all of Scripture there are a number of ways of looking at this.
·         How it relates to Jesus
·         how it relates to your own life and
·         how it relates to heaven and the end times.

Primarily we are talking about this new movement - Christians.

It cannot be contained within the parameters of the old.
And the reason for that is that new wine expands.
New wineskins are the gut of the animal and are pliable and expandable.

If you put this new movement of Jesus that is exploding onto the scene and expanding through the whole world, if you try to contain it within the parameters of the Old Law and the parameters of the Temple and the parameters of old Testament sacrifice and the priesthood it will burst it.
The Old is not able to contain the New.
