Yoda wanted to look into Lukes heart. How you treat the most insignifficant beings/persons tells a lot about you. Luke was impatient but he was kind enough to follow Yoda into his hut and even eat the weird food Yoda offered to him. He had a good heart but was really impatient. It's a fairytale moment in a way. I think this sort of theme has been repeated numerous times in all sorts of stories. That's why it probably works so well.
PT Yoda was like the Pope. He was too concerned with the rules. The Jedi were too rigid to see what was happening until it was too late. Yoda was immoral in a way - following the rules when it would have helped to break them (not freeing Anakin's mom) and breaking the rules when he should have followed them (turning the Jedi into soldiers for the Clone Wars).
OT Yoda was older and wiser, had learned from his mistakes, and also from Qui-Gon's looser ways.
Yes, yes, to BenduHopkins you should listen.Yoda learned the hard way that the Dogmatic way of the Jedi was flawed..He humbly accepted the spirit of Qui-Gon as his Master and began to re-evaluate the true meaning of the force...His "crazy" behaviour was a test of Luke's judgement & patience.
