(Read Luke 5 Part 1 First)

30 But the Pharisees and their teachers of religious law complained bitterly to Jesus' disciples, "Why do you eat and drink with such scum*?"1

31 Jesus answered them, "Healthy people don't need a doctor--sick people do.

32 I have come to call sinners to turn from their sins, not to spend my time with those who think they are already good enough."

33 The religious leaders complained that Jesus' disciples were feasting instead of fasting. "John the Baptist's disciples always fast and pray," they declared, "and so do the disciples of the Pharisees. Why are yours always feasting?"

34 Jesus asked, "Do wedding guests fast while celebrating with the groom?

35 Someday he will be taken away from them, and then they will fast."

36 Then Jesus gave them this illustration: "No one tears a piece of cloth from a new garment and uses it to patch an old garment. For then the new garment would be torn, and the patch wouldn't even match the old garment.

37 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. The new wine would burst the old skins, spilling the wine and ruining the skins.

38 New wine must be put into new wineskins.

39 But no one who drinks the old wine seems to want the fresh and the new. `The old is better,' they say."
