Jesus, Len H...and Jimmy Page ..on old/new

From three prophetic sources..and I think all three might agree that they may be in order..as in degree of prophetic perfection(:..
Jesus, Len H...and Jimmy Page, of course!

1) "Then you see how every student well-trained in God's kingdom is like the owner of a general store who can put his hands on anything you need, old or new, exactly when you need it."
-Jesus; Matthew 13:52 (The Message)

2)"We require a new kind of leader for a new world, and in many ways we require a new kind of church for this new world also. But then, as many have pointed out, only the really old is truly new. Peter Maurin of the Catholic Worker used to say that we can be encouraged by signs of something new precisely because they are signs of something God has been doing for centuries.."
-Len Hjalmarson

3)"I used to spend a lot of time going to junk shops looking for things that other people
might have missed. (One time) Robert was...with me...and found the picture of the old man with the sticks and suggested that we work it into our cover somehow. So we decided to contrast the modern skyscraper on the back with the old man with the sticks--you see the destruction of the old, and the new coming forward. Our hearts were as much in tune with old ways as with what was happening, though we weren't always in agreement with the new."
-Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, re: album art for Led Zeppelin IV.

Rock, Resistance, and the Struggle for the Soul of Islam " p.270
