Now John’s disciples and the Pharisees were fasting. And people came and said to him, “Why do John’s disciples and the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?” And Jesus said to them, “Can the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast in that day. No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. If he does, the patch tears away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear is made. And no one puts new wine into old wine skins. If he does, the wine will burst the skins – and the wine is destroyed , and so are the skins. But new wine is for fresh wine skins.”
There are times for fasting, as when Yeshu would be killed later on.
However Yeshu’s time on earth was like a wedding feast. and his disciples enjoyed eating with him because of the new life that he gave them. For this reason for them to live in mtshams was no longer suitable.
Today also, when men have left behind the old life so as to become Yeshu’s disciples, they will know the new joy – like wine as it were – of his presence in their new lives.
