References for Mark 2:18

      19 Jesus said, “The wedding guests can't fast while the groom is with them, can they? As long as they have the groom with them, they can't fast.
      20 But the days will come when the groom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast.
      21 "No one sews a piece of new, unshrunk cloth on old clothes; otherwise, the patch tears away from it, the new from the old, and makes a worse tear.
      22 No one pours new wine into old leather wineskins; otherwise, the wine would burst the wineskins and the wine would be lost and the wineskins destroyed. But new wine is for new wineskins."
