Mark 2:18-22

Jesus is Questioned about Fasting

v18  The disciples of John and of the Pharisees were fasting. ( a religious duty).  Then they came and said to Him, “Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but Your disciples do not fast?”

v19  And Jesus said to them, “Can the friends of the bridegroom fast while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them they cannot fast.

v20  But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast in those days.

v21  No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; or else the new piece pulls away from the old, and the tear is made worse.

v22  And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins.”
