However, Jesus spoke of bursting wineskins not rehydrations.
The new wineskins were sealed strong with pitch to resist fermentation. The fermentation’s explosive power would have burst the new skin as easily as the old skin. The old simply would have let in the yeast spores and caused an explosion. The expansive pressure of fermentation would burst new skins as easily as old skins. Raisins was “a way to do it”. Other methods of preserving juice besides raisins are documented such as sulfur or water extraction making syrup. (Prov. 20:1).
“It is said, “The new skin-bottles of the ancients allowed the clastic gases of the fermenting liquid to expand them, and therefore they did not burst and spill the wine.”
“This is a delusion, for the strongest hide of hog or ox, formed into a bottle and filled with grape-juice that had begun to ferment, would, if closed up, be burst asunder as with imprisoned steam ; and if not closed, then the old bottle would run no risk of rending.* A cubic inch of sugar, transformed into carbonic acid gas, occupies a space of probably forty times as much.”
“* ‘The force of fermenting wine is very great, being able, if closely stopped up, to burst through the strongest cask.” (Chambers’s Cyclopedia, art. * Wine/ 1750.) … See further, Works of Dr Lees, ii. p. 158, and elsewhere.’

David Bee: “How do you suppose grape juice was protected from fermentation in Bible times? If it spent more than a couple of days in the wineskin it began to ferment, you can be sure.”
Drying fruit was a way to do it. Drying out grapes and rehydrating the raisins made fresh wine.
New NAD president: ‘I love you’ doesn’t mean we won’t deal with issues
Sudhir, thank you for your comments.
I believe and fear you are in every way correct that the leaders will give greatest account to the Lord. I did not take your comments about leaders’ as defusing employees’ responsibility. You are correct as Jesus said, “But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.” Luke 12:48 (emphasis supplied.) Thank you for the clarification and for the fine article. Very calm but earnest.
Educate Truth’s purpose and goals
“I’m more appalled that there has been, and continues to be, an administration that hires and supports professors whose beliefs undermine the Bible and beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.”
I am also appalled. However guilt in administration does not void the responsibility of workers to study and carry out for exactly what they are being payed by the organization, by which administration is elected regardless of the admin’s fidelity.
In the church, harmony of interest is of utmost importance more so than in the world. Comparing fidelity and harmony of interest in Fortune 500 corporations falls far short of the harsh reality of unfaithfulness with the true riches while some don’t even believe it is important at all.
A dishonest employee may comfort himself that his supervisor is also dishonest to the end not lifting admin’s greater responsibility nor providing any real excuse.
