Yehoshua  (יהושע) Heals a Crippled Man

(Matt 9:1-8; Luke 5:17-26)

2:1 And again He entered into K'far-Nachum after some days; and it was heard that He was in the house.

2:2 And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive [them], no, not so much as about the door: and He proclaimed the word to them.

2:3 And they came, bringing to Him a paralytic carried by four men.

2:4 And when they could not get near him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him, and when they had made an opening, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay.

2:5 When Yeshua (ישוע) saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins be forgiven."

2:6 But there were certain of the Sophrim sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,

2:7 Why doth this [man] thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive averot (sins) but Elohim only?

2:8 And immediately when Yeshua (ישוע) perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, He said to them, Why reason you these things in your hearts?

2:9 Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, [your] averot (sins) be forgiven you; or to say, Arise, and take up your bed, and walk?

2:10 But that you may know that the Son of man has power on earth to forgive averot (sins), (he said to the sick of the palsy,)

2:11 I say to you, Arise, and take up your bed, and go your way into your house.

2:12 And immediately He arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified Elohim, saying, We never saw it on this fashion.

Yehoshua  (יהושע) calls Levi

(Matt 9:9-13; Luke 5:27-32)

2:13 And He went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude resorted to Him, and He taught them.

2:14 And as He passed by, He saw Levi Ben Chalfai (חַלְּפַי) sitting at the receipt of custom, and said to Him, Follow Me. And He arose and followed Him.

2:15 And it came to pass, that, as Yeshua (ישוע) reclined at tish in Levi's house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Yeshua (ישוע) and His talmidim: for there were many, and they followed Him.

2:16 And when the Sophrim and P'rushim saw Him eat with publicans and sinners, they said to his talmidim, How is it that He eats and drinks with publicans and sinners?

2:17 When Yeshua (ישוע) heard [it], He said to them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the tzadikim, but sinners to repentance.

2:18 And the talmidim of Yochanan and of the P'rushim used to fast: and they come and say to Him, Why do the talmidim of Yochanan and of the P'rushim fast, but your talmidim fast not?

2:19 And Yeshua said to them:

Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.

2:20 But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.

2:21 No man also sews a piece of new cloth on an old garment: else the new piece that filled it up takes away from the old, and the rent is made worse.

2:22 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins."

Yehoshua  (יהושע) is Master over Yom Shabbat

(Matt 12:1-8; Luke 6:1-5) (Also taught Rabbinical literature Talmud Yoma 85b. )

2:23 And it came to pass, that He went through the corn fields on Shabbat; and His talmidim began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn.

2:24 And the P'rushim said to Him, Behold, why do they on Shabbat that which is not mutar (permissive)?

2:25 And He said to them, Have you never read what David did, when He had need, and was an hungred, He, and they that were with him?

2:26 How He went into the Beit Elohim in the days of Evyatar Kohen haGadol, and did eat Lechem haPanim, which is not mutar (permissive) to eat but for the kohanim, and gave also to them which were with him?

2:27 And He said to them:

The Shabbat was made for man, and not man for the Shabbat:

2:28 Therefore the Son of man is Master also of the Shabbat.

2:27 Talmud Yoma 85b: 
"R. Yosie son of R. Yehudah said: 'Only ye shall keep My Shabbatot', one might assume under all circumstances, therefore the text reads: ‘Only’ viz, allowing for exceptions. R. Yonatan b. Yosef said: For it is holy unto you; i.e., "IT [THE SHABBAT] IS COMMITTED TO YOUR HANDS, NOT YOU TO ITS HANDS." 

What is wineskins - Nod yayin?

The wineskin are made of leather use as containers to hold wine. They could not be reused as the gas pressure from fermentation the second time would burst them. New wine still has to ferment. Old wine has already been fermented. So, if you fully fill up a skin that has had fermented old wine in it with new unfermented wine as the new wine ferments, it will produces gases, thus it will burst the skin as it stretches.

Burst the bottles; by its fermentation.--New bottles; which, being made of skins, and consequently elastic, yield to the expansion, and are not easily torn while the old wineskins go thru a fermenting process when they are first filled and then they becomes hardened
