The Disciples Do Not Fast

Mark 2:18–22; Luke 5:33–39

14 Then the disciples of John came to Him, saying, l“Why do we and the Pharisees fast 3often, but Your disciples do not fast?”

15 And Jesus said to them, “Can mthe 4friends of the bridegroom mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and nthen they will fast. 16 No one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; for 5the patch pulls away from the garment, and the tear is made worse. 17 Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins 6break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”
