“Why, then, are you now putting God to the test by placing on the shoulders of the disciples a yoke that neither our ancestors nor we have been able to bear?” Paul argues that Jewish converts should not burden Gentile converts with Mosaic laws and dietary practices because they were not under the law. They were not part of that covenant, but instead are part of the new covenant. Yokes that are difficult to bear can be cultural and religious intolerance,war, social injustices, hatreds, and economic injustices. Paul indirectly asks why do we burden one another with things that were burdensome to our ancestors. He asked that over 2000 years ago yet we still do exactly that today.How much different are the wars of the twenty first century , our century , from the wars of the first century? How many yokes are more difficult to bear than war?
