Jesus Teaches About Fasting

Matt. 9:14, 15; Mark 2:18–20

33 Then they said to Him, i“Why 6do the disciples of John fast often and make prayers, and likewise those of the Pharisees, but Yours eat and drink?”

34 And He said to them, “Can you make the friends of the bridegroom fast while the jbridegroom is with them? 35 But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them; then they will fast in those days.”

Parable of the Cloth and Wineskins

Matt. 9:16, 17; Mark 2:21, 22

36 kThen He spoke a parable to them: “No one 7puts a piece from a new garment on an old one; otherwise the new makes a tear, and also the piece that was taken out of the new does not match the old. 37 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine will burst the wineskins and be spilled, and the wineskins will be ruined. 38 But new wine must be put into new wineskins, 8and both are preserved. 39 And no one, having drunk old wine, 9immediately desires new; for he says, ‘The old is 1better.’ ”
