The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth (the Jefferson Bible), by Thomas Jefferson, [1902], at


Parable of New Wine in Old Bottles.

AND he spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old.

p. 68

2 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled and the bottles shall perish.

3 But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.

4 No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.

Next: XXIV. A Prophet Hath no Honor in his Own Country
